  • Mash the mixture until you obtain a homogeneous dough.
  • Pour the mixture into a mold.
  • Bake the cake in a preheated oven at 150º C for about 40 minutes.
  • To check if it is done you can use a needle or a wooden stick.
  • The only thing missing is the glaze: Mix well the mandarin juice with powdered sugar. It is best to add the juice little by little to control the quantity.

When using whole tangerines, the flavor of the cake is slightly bitter. If you do not like this taste, you can peel the mandarins and remove the white layer to use only the orange peel of the mandarins. You can prepare the same recipe with orangesit is also delicious.
