Clementine & Almond Cake

Updated: Jul 30, 2020

Pan de mandarina i almendra

Pureed, boiled clementines lend themselves to an indescribably moist, citrus-flavoured, flourless almond cake. This cake has proven very popular with family and friends as a dessert or for tea with lightly whipped cream. In Zimbabwe clementines are known as naartjies, which is an Afrikaans word from neighbouring South Africa. It is a fruit that is grown in profusion in the Mazowe citrus estates close to Harare. It is ideal as a flourless cake for Passover with baking powder omitted*. For a festive touch I scatter glistening slices of candied clementine on the top or simply dust with icing sugar.
