mandarin cake

Ingredients

(Warning: it uses lots of bowls! And more steps than a usual cake and a lot of beating but it is yum!)

  • 4 mandarins
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 cup Chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 and line a cake tin (I used a spring form)
  2. Wash mandarins really well and peel
  3. Put peel in food processor for a few seconds on high until they are tiny pieces
  4. Separate egg
  5. With your hands squeeze mandarins and collect 1/4 cup juice
  6. Bowl 1: take out 2 table spoons of sugar and beat with egg whites until soft peaks form
  7. Bowl 2 (large bowl): beat mandarin rind (peel), egg yokes and sugar. Combine on low and then beat on high for a couple of minutes until mixture is creamy and about doubled in size
  8. Bowl 3: mix olive oil and mandarin juice
  9. Bowl 4: mix flour and Chia seeds
  10. Pour half of flour mixture into egg yoke mixture. Beat on low with electric beaters and slowly pour in olive oil mixture. Then add remaining flour.
  11. Mix on medium until combined
  12. Take half egg white mixture and with a large metal spoon fold into mixture
  13. Fold in remaining egg whites (don’t over mix)
  14. Pour mixture into cake tin
  15. Bake for 35 mins or until you insert a skewer into cake and it comes out clean

 

Notes

You can use almond meal or any seeds in place of chia seeds
