Introduction to the Culinary Magic of Turron

Turrón de Jijona, a treasure of Spanish gastronomy, is much more than a simple ingredient; it’s an invitation to a sensory voyage. Made from ground almonds, quality honey and eggs, this tender Turron reflects a rich tradition and know-how handed down through generations. Incorporating Turrón de Jijona into a cake recipe means blending tradition and innovation to create a pastry rich in history and flavor.

Ingredients: Choice and Quality

To make this wonder, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 130g Turrón de Jijona: The star ingredient, known for its soft texture and rich taste of almonds and honey.
  • 150g butter: To add softness and unrivalled richness to your cake.
  • 100g sugar: To sweeten and add flavour.
  • 3 eggs: They will be the key to obtain an airy and light texture.
  • 100g flour: The base of your cake, providing the structure.
  • 1 sachet of yeast: To ensure your cake rises perfectly and is soft and fluffy.

Preparation: Child’s play

  1. Preheating: Start by preheating your oven to 180 degrees Celsius, a crucial step for even baking.

  2. Fusion of Flavors: In a saucepan, gently melt the Jijona Turron with the butter until smooth and creamy. Leave to cool.

  3. Beat for Lightness: Meanwhile, in a bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar until the mixture whitens and becomes frothy, a sign that the air has been well incorporated.

  4. Incorporating the dry ingredients: Gently add the sifted flour and yeast to your preparation, mixing just enough to incorporate, without overworking the dough.

  5. Mixing Magic: Then add the warmed butter and Turron mixture to your bowl. Stir gently until smooth and homogeneous;

  6. Perfect baking time: Pour the mixture into a buttered and floured cake tin, then bake for 20 to 25 minutes. The trick to knowing when your cake is ready? Insert a knife blade into the center; it should come out dry.
