This irresistible and fresh cake I’d like to dedicate to the twins of my Iranian friends Farzaneh & Ali. Delicious, fresh and really raspberry yummy. The cake is also perfectly suitable for people with milk intolerance.

Preparation time 45 minutes .. Cooling 30 minutes .. Baking 20-23 minutes

INGREDIENTS .. up to ø 30 cm – 8 pers

  • 250 g flour
  • 70 g icing sugar
  • 125 g butter
  • 1 yolk
  • 50 ml water
  • pinch of salt


  • 550 ml raspberry coulis
  • 3 big eggs
  • 125 ml orange juice
  • 100 g icing sugar
  • 80 g pudding powder


  • 3 egg whites
  • 150 g caster sugar


Beat the egg yolks with the sugar and soften with a little water (or milk). Put the butter in pieces and salt to the flour as for pastry. Take flour and butter in the hands and fingers crossed. Mash butter and flour together lightly rubbing his hands. Flour passes between the fingers. Note the pieces of butter coated with flour. Sanding finished form a fountain. Pour the sugar mixture in the center.

Quickly incorporate elements using a dough cutter (without giving body). Gently squeeze the mass hands. If all it takes is that moisture is sufficient. Otherwise, add a little water. Lightly flour the work surface and milling until obtaining the soft pastry and form the ball. As for the pastry must be thin and flexible.


Put the raspberry coulis and 50% of the sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Beat eggs a bit in a bowl separately. Mix the rest of the icing sugar, pudding powder and orange juice together until smooth. When currant juice starts to boil, get the pot from the heat, add the pudding mixture first, followed by the beaten eggs and mix well. Then put everything back on the fire and cook a little like the pudding.

Put the pudding in a glass bowl, cover with foil, so that it touches the pudding and put to use in the refrigerator.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180°C (fun ovens -20°C).
Roll the dough on a baking paper, put it into the cake pan and cut the edges nicely. Pour the cooled raspberry pudding in it and bake at 180°C for 20-23 minutes. Let the cake cool completely after baking.


Whip the egg whites until firm peaks. Then add the sugar gradually and continue beating until a solid mass. Spread the meringue over the cake and burn them with a burner or put under the broiler in the oven until meringue turns golden.

Decorate the cake according your wish and enjoy !
