Yay, tomorrow it's Koningsdag (King's day) in the Netherlands, a day where we celebrate the birthday of the King. People dress themselves in orange, the Dutch color, and they party the night before and the entire 27th of April. A typical mouthwatering snack during King's day, is the 'Oranje Tompouce', preferably bought at HEMA.
A tompouce is made of two layers of puff pastry (bladerdeeg), a lot of whipped cream in between and a super sweet layer of glazing on top. It's sold all-year-round, but during the last week of April the color of the pink glazing will switch from pink to orange.
Now that we live in Stockholm, I can't find myself a HEMA store, let alone an 'Oranje Tompouce'. Thet's why I decided to make them myself and change the recipe, so it's a little less unhealthy!
I swopped the cream for low fat greek yoghurt and I've made them half the size of the regular HEMA version. If you manage to eat only one, you're skipping a lot of calories ;-)
Time: 20 minutes
Groceries for 4 pieces
2 sheets of puff pastry of 12cm - 12 cm, cut into 8 pieces of 6cm - 6cm
90g of Total 0% Greek style yoghurt
75g of orange marmelade (choose one with a high containing of oranges, which means the first ingredient on the list should be oranges)
45g of honey
Half a carrot
Filling and glazing:
EASY AS THAT!
I'm not gonna lie, my take on the tompouce is still a guilty pleasure. The puff pastry gives a lot of taste, but is not your day-to-day healthy option. However, as you can see this version contains less sugar and fat than the original HEMA one. It's also half the size, which makes a huge difference.
