Mandarin & Almond Cake

Afternoon Tea never tasted so good…This recipe can also be replaced with oranges if mandarins are not available.

Mandarin & Almond Cake

The perfect afternoon tea accompaniment.


4 whole mandarins (if  using oranges use 2)

3 eggs

1/3 cup rice malt syrup, honey or maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups almond meal

1 tsp baking powder

natural yoghurt or cream to serve


1.Preheat oven to 160’c

2.In a small saucepan place mandarins whole with skin left on, fill with water till covering the mandarins and simmer on low heat for 1 hour, then let them cool ( you can always do this prior even day before and leave in the fridge)

3.In a food processor process the mandarins until smooth

4.Add eggs one at a time followed by rice malt syrup (or honey), vanilla, almond meal, baking powder and process until smooth. Another thing I sometimes like to add is 1tb poppy seeds.

5.Transfer into a greased 20cm round cake tin and bake for 50-60mins until firm and skewer comes out clean.

6.Serve with natural yoghurt or cream
