Recipes for Mardi Gras: gluten free Mardi Gras cake 5 recipes selected for you –
Here we are at Mardi Gras/Carnival season, so we have selected for you 5 recipes for a typical cake: the King Cake.
“A king cake (sometimes shown as kingcake, kings’ cake, king’s cake, or three kings cake) is a type of cake associated in a number of countries with the festival of Epiphany at the end of the Christmas season; in other places, it is associated with the pre-Lenten celebrations of Mardi Gras/Carnival.
What started out roughly 300 years ago as a dry French bread–type dough with sugar on top and a bean inside now comes in many varieties depending on the country. Some king cakes are made of a sweet brioche dough in the shape of a hollow circle with a glazed topping sprinkled with colored sugar. Hundreds of thousands of King Cakes are eaten in New Orleans during the Carnival season. In other countries, king cakes are made with a puff pastry, filled with one of several fillings (e.g., almond, apple, chocolate/pear, etc.), and have a small figurine hidden inside. The figurine changes from bakery to bakery and often represents a hit movie or other cultural icon.
The cake often has a small plastic baby (to represent the Baby Jesus) inside or underneath and the person who gets the piece of cake with the trinket has various privileges and obligations.”
