Never knew what clementines were, until zzz was inspired after watching a Nigella Lawson’s episode. I must say it’s a really good (and expensive) cake!! Mainly because it’s made from almond powder, not flour.
Yummys! good to go with vanilla ice-cream too!
– 2 Clementines, about 130g each
– 4 eggs
– 150 g sugar
– 175 g ground almonds
2 teaspoon baking powder
Put clementines into a pot, cover with tap water, bring to boil and simmer for 1-2 hours.
Drain the clementines. When cooled, roughly chop and blend into a rough paste.
Preheat oven 190 deg celcius. Line and butter a 7 inch cake tin.
Beat eggs or whisk by hand. Fold in dry ingredients. Add clementines and mix well. Pour batter into cake tin and bake for 40 mins. May need to cover the tin with foil or metal lid for the last 5 mins of baking.
Goes well with chocolate ganache and vanilla ice-cream.
