Mandarin & Almond Cake

You’d better make double – this cake will be devoured in no time!

Difficulty:Normal
Preparation time:30 mins
Cooking time:35 mins
Servings:8

Ingredients

  • 3 Mandarins
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 Cup (200gm) CSR Caster Sugar
  • 2 Packed Cups (340gm) Almond Meal

Instructions

  1. Cover mandarins (skin and all) with water, bring to boil then simmer for 1 hour. Cool completely, then remove seeds and puree. Preheat oven to 160°C. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar together, 5 minutes.
  2. Fold through the puree and almond meal. When combined, pour into a paper-lined 22cm cake tin and bake for 60 to 70 minutes, or until a skewer removes cleanly from the centre of the cake.
  3. Dust with icing sugar and decorate with mandarin segments to serve; it is all you need to garnish this deliciously moist cake.
