The almond and orange dumplings are small cakes that go perfectly with mint tea. They are very tasty with their taste of almond, orange and orange flower. A one-way ticket to Rabat at Café Maure!
Recipe for 4 people:
-250g almond powder
-100g of caster sugar
-the zest of a whole untreated orange
-a quarter packet of baking powder
-slivered and/or chopped almonds
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Put the almond powder, caster sugar and yeast in a bowl.
Add egg and orange zest.
Start mixing and add orange blossom. Add just enough orange blossom to form a ball of dough.
Pour chopped or slivered almonds or both onto plates. Take a ball of dough the size of a cherry and roll it in the almonds.
Once all the balls are rolled in almonds, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Then sprinkle them with powdered sugar with a tea strainer. Place in the oven and cook for about 15 minutes.
Put them to cool on a rack. Serve them an hour later with a mint tea!
