  • ½ tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 large orange, juice and zest
  • 250 gr (8.8 oz) butter, room temperature
  • 400 gr (14.1 oz) sugar
  • 180 ml (6.1 floz) milk

Grease and flour a form Ø28-30cm or 2 smaller forms.
Divide yolks from the whites and beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar and about half of sugar, in tight meringue. Leave it aside for a while.
Take the zest and juice of an orange. Put aside for a while until you need them.
In a large bowl beat the butter with the remaining sugar for 5 min to rise. Add one to one yolks, beating after each addition.
Pour the liquids, orange juice, brandy and milk, beating.
Add partially the flour with baking powder, mixing with a plastic spatula.
Put the orange zest and vanilla continuing mixing.
Pour the Candied stirring constantly, until incorporated into the mixture of the cake.
With the spatula fold the meringue and the remaining flour so that it is carefully integrated into the mix without being deflated.
