Sweet orange polenta casserole with creme fraiche
Sometimes there are accidents in the kitchen that can only be disposed of because they are inedible. And sometimes something goes awry in the kitchen when cooking or baking, which turns out to be an absolute stroke of luck. Like this Orange Polenta Casserole , which I present to you today, which should actually be an orange-polenta cake ...
Orange Jam Cake or Orange Polenta Casserole Admittedly, the cake was declared in a British magazine (source: Olive Magazin, November 2015 issue) as a mixture of cake and English pudding, so we're not talking about a classic sponge cake anyway. However, I was so impatient that I wanted to cut the cake directly warm. And there he just flowed against me. But it was such a revelation in taste, so let's just call it a casserole and enjoy this delicious mix of cake and casserole! After all, who needs cake if he can have something as delectable as an orange-polenta casserole?
In fact, you just stir a dough. Plenty of butter, eggs, ground almonds and polenta. The casserole is so gluten-free and does not have the classic consistency of a cake. On the one hand it is soft and juicy, on the other hand it has a great bite through the almonds and the polenta and thus a slight grain without being hard. What makes the butter great from the mix, we do not need to discuss further, the casserole is in the truest sense of the word "buttery soft" and extremely juicy and airy.
Three times orange in the orange-polenta casserole
The orange note gets the casserole by orange juice, orange peel and also orange marmalade. Here I have opted for an Italian organic jam that tastes fantastic on the bread. With English marmalade or a home-cooked jam, it's guaranteed to be delicious too! The ready-baked orange and polenta casserole will then also have a delicious orange marmalade and orange juice sprinkling, which really fits nicely into the casserole.
I brought the casserole to the office as usual, and everyone loved it. At first surprised, because a sweet casserole is actually not a classic cake dessert. But the taste and consistency absolutely positively impressed. Because the great thing is that the casserole tastes both warm and cold. And you can easily heat it up again in the microwave easily. Serve it with a decent dollop of crème fraîche - which makes for a great slightly acidic and fresh counterpart.
For me, the sweet orange polenta casserole is definitely my discovery of the year so far, and I can warmly recommend to imitate him! And what do we learn from it: Just because something goes wrong, it does not have to be bad! Have fun trying them out!
