Authentic Pithiviers Cake (Award Winning Recipe) Video
My childhood friend Alexia and her husband Olivier are visiting. Olivier is an amazing cook and I've had the privilege to learn his grandma "Mamie Françoise"'s secret Pithiviers cake recipe. A Pithiviers is a cake made of almond flour, eggs, sugar and oranges. It originates from the town of Pithiviers, in the Orleans area of France, where Olivier and his family are from. According to his grandmother, there are many variations of this original classic French dessert but this one is the authentic recipe. The traditional version calls for candied fruits on top (fruits confits in French) and absolutely no top puff pastry crust.
It is best eaten after resting for a few days. I can't tell you how long the baked Pithiviers can be stored because it didn't last long in our home! Whether you're a beginner or a professional pâtissier, this Pithiviers cake is easy to make at home, once we let you in on the secrets of this authentic recipe. Follow the instructions from this video and you'll have the pleasure of eating this moist cake that won the Pithiviers cake contest back in the 1930s. Mamie Françoise was the proud winner!
