    • 250g soft butter
    • 200g sugar
    • 1 packet baking powder
    • 1 egg
    • 550g flour
  • For the streusel:

  1. Prepare the dough: In a large bowl, combine soft butter, sugar, baking powder, an egg, and flour. Knead these ingredients into a soft, pliable dough. Press this dough evenly into a greased 24x35cm baking pan, reserving a handful for the streusel topping.
  2. Make the streusel: Chop the reserved dough and mix with two tablespoons of flour to create crumbly streusel.
  3. Prepare the filling: In a separate bowl, mix the curd, cream, sugar, vanilla essence, vanilla pudding powder, and eggs until well blended. Pour this mixture over the prepared dough base.
  4. Add fruits and topping: Evenly distribute the drained tangerines over the filling. Sprinkle the streusel topping over the tangerines.
  5. Bake: Place in a preheated oven at 180°C (356°F) and bake until the edges are golden brown and the filling is set, about 40-45 minutes.
  6. Cool and serve: Allow the cake to cool in the pan before slicing. Optionally, dust with powdered sugar or garnish with fresh tangerine slices before serving.
