Ingredients (makes 1 22cm cake)
- 3 mandarins
- 1 cup coconut sugar
- 6 eggs
- 2 cups almond meal
- Place whole unpeeled mandarins, in a saucepan and cover with water, bring to the boil then simmer for 1 hour. Allow to cool completely then pull them apart and remove any pips. Then puree the mandarins including the peel
- Beat eggs and sugar until thick and glossy, then add mandarins puree and almond meal and stir well
- Pour into a 22 cm, paper lined cake tin and bake in a preheated oven at 160C for 60mins. Turn onto a wire rack and allow to cool. Either ice or serve plain.
This cake is full of flavour which is why I didn't ice it. Mandarins can be replaced with oranges or lemons. I also made a few little cupcakes for my toddler and she loved it.
