Clementine Cake

I was watching Nigella Lawson [sigh! ] making this cake on the Lifestyle channel last night, she did say you could sub the Clementines with Oranges. What amazed me was that she did the whole process in a food processor, it was just so easy and there's no flour involved.

Wow! So easy and moist, I bet. I don't see why any citrus fruit wouldn't work here, not just clementines. What do you think?

I'm sure that there is someone here more qualified than I to advise you on that Jill, I have never heard of Clementines before and don't know what the difference is between them and Oranges, but it does look nice eh!

Clementines are a small seedless tangarine..Sweet and juicy usually at their best around the Christmas season.But there are other tangarines out all year round you can use.

There's no flour because the ground almonds take the place of it.

I love clementines and tangerines, altho I also would make this cake at Christmas (or winter, wherever you are) as those are winter fruits. but it does sound wonderful! thanks, Wayne!

You should have saved a few, Attie. The recipe sounds great. I make an orange muffin that calls for blitzing the orange, peel and all, in the food processor. I really like that strong orange flavour. Thank you!

Well, this is it, the final result. I wasn't real fussed on the texture and after a couple of days it became more moist as Nigella said, too moist in fact so next time I might sub 1/2 the ground almond with SR flour.
