As we are approaching winter, I am looking to make cakes with fruits that are in season in the winter time. Clementines are in season from November to February, so I got the idea of making a clementine cake. I had never made a cake with clementines before, and I was happily surprised to find that it is quite delicious! I have a recipe that is easy to follow, and makes for a light and moist clementine cake! Yum! Enjoy!
The recipe I am using is from one of my favorite French cookbooks, Simplissime desserts, by Jean-François Mallet. The recipe uses clementines, but you could make the same cake with mandarins.
