To make these cakes I used a muffin tray with six holes, seven centimeters in diameter at the bottom and nine at the top. We start by greasing the walls of each hole and sprinkling them with flour. Next, we pour a small amount of caramel at the base of each cavity.
Grate the oranges with a fine grater and reserve the zest. Peel them, removing well the white membrane that covers them and cut them into discs of a centimeter thick. Of each orange we use the three central disks, we can use the rest for another elaboration. We place the six orange discs in the cavities of the mold, on the caramel.
In a large bowl, beat the butter (which should be at room temperature), sugar and eggs. We sift the flour together with the chemical impeller and add it to the previous mixture. Remove with a spatula. The dough is very dense, so we add the water very hot to make it easier to incorporate. Remove until homogenized.
Divide the dough between the six cavities of the muffin tray and cook in the oven, pre-heated at 180 ° C for about 25 minutes. For check if the cakes are ready, we introduce a skewer. If it comes out dry, then we can remove them from the oven. We let them temper well before unmolding them, so they don't break us in the process.
