400 - 450g whole mandarins (about 3 – 4)

6 eggs

200g caster sugar

260g almond meal

1 tsp baking powder

Icing sugar to serve (optional)

Cream or natural yogurt, to serve


  1. Preheat fan oven to 170°C.

  2. Place mandarins in a saucepan and cover with water.

  3. Bring to the boil then reduce heat and allow to simmer for about half an hour until mandarins are very soft and a butter knife slices through easily.

  4. Remove from heat and drain.

  5. Once mandarins are cool enough to handle, cut open and remove pips.

  6. Place whole mandarins in a food processor, and process to a puree.

  7. Beat eggs and sugar together until lovely and pale and thick.

  8. Fold in almond meal and baking powder.

  9. Stir in mandarin puree and pour mixture into prepared pan.

  10. Bake for about 60 minutes and allow to cool in baking pan.

  11. If desired, dust with icing sugar.

Our suggestion? Serve with nice big dollops of cream or icing sugar : )
