Today's experimental 'use up what's in the fruit bowl' recipe was such a success that I thought I'd better share.
Not only did I think it was delicious, but Alice shoved handfuls of cake into her little mouth and I've never seen her do that before!
My Mum passed along a 'tangy orange cake' recipe that uses a whole orange, and this is a variation of that recipe.
Mandarin and Date Cake:
3 small mandarins, chopped in half
Handful of dates
175g melted butter
1.5 cups self raising flour
0.5 cups sugar
Blitz the mandarins and dates in the food processor. Add all other ingredients and blitz until combined.
Pour into a greased 20cm cake tin.
Bake at 180 degrees for 35-40mins.
Serve drenched with icing sugar.
