Lambada - in addition to the famous song and dance, this cake of the same name awakens my childhood memories. I remember when I was little, my mom used to make this cake very often. Now I haven't eaten this for a long time, so I must admit I forgot about it a little.

I don't know how it got its name, but I sure know it's a delicious cake worth making.



  • 5 eggs 
  • 9 tablespoons sugar 
  • 9 tablespoons flour 
  • 2 tsp baking powder

Orange cream: 

  •  1 liter of orange juice (4 cups)

White cream:

  •  500 ml of milk (2 cups)
  •  4 tablespoons flour 
  •  5 tablespoons sugar
