Tasty Tuesday: Homespun Clementine Cake

Yesterday we celebrated the Summer Solstice. Yes, it was on Sunday, but Father's Day took precedence... And this is the cake that I *so* wish we could have had, but sadly, clementines were no where to be found... Perhaps we can figure out a way to substitute canned mandarin oranges or something else... It is a totally yummeh cake! Golden yellow and firm, almost caramelly, with sweet & juicy chunks of real Clementines, topped with the yummiest fluffy frosting...

Homespun Clementine Cake
  • 3 seedless clementines, peels and pith removed, cubed
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 and 1/2 cups whipped cream or whipped topping
  1. Peel clementines and remove skins. Cut into small pieces. Add orange juice, egg, sugar, flour and baking soda; mix. Pour into a lightly greased 8- or 9-inch pan. Bake in preheated oven at 300 degrees for about 30 minutes. Cool completely.
  2. Stir together confectioners sugar, vanilla and salt. Fold in whipped cream or topping. Frost cake. Makes 1 (8 or 9-inch) cake.

P.S. I may have shared this recipe before, but I couldn't seem to find it in my archives, so maybe I didn't...
