In October last year, we received a box of heirloom tangerines. Ripened at the coast, bathing in the sun, not chemically treated, the fruits are pure pleasure these days, right?

We used them for breakfasts with cereals and I thought how good it would be to use them for orange bundt cake to publish once citruses’ season arrives. Since fresh tangerines cannot wait that long, I decided to make an experiment with boiling the tangerine oranges in October and bake the cake in February.

Frozen pulpa, once thawed, works great with the rest of ingredients and it is great to know, dear friends, this orange preserving works excellent !

Namely, this orange cake recipe requires no tangerine juice and zest only but you boil whole tangerines, cool and chop them until you get thick pulpa.

 

To know approximate quantities, let me say I got 1 ½ cup of pulpa after boiling six tangerine oranges.

This is easy tangerine cake recipe to make once you have thick pulpa, freshly made or thawed.

If you use frozen pulpa to bake this bundt cake, make sure to take pulpa out one day before baking so it thaws slowly.

Also, quantity of batter you get is exactly enough to make one large and six small bundts so please prepare large bundt pan (3 ½ cups) and six small bundts pan as well.

 

Since everything was ready on Saturday morning, I started to rock the pots and bowls. With morning coffee cup next to me, sipped now and then, who could ask for more ?
My son was still sleeping, me baking in pyjamas, tangerine orange flavours released … Heaven !

Ingredients

  • Ingredients for the cake:
  • 6 medium sized tangerines to get 1 1/2 cup pulpa
  • 1 stick + 2 tsp unsalted butter
  • 1 ¼ cup white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ½ cup flour
  • 7 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • Ingredients for the syrup:
  • 4 medium sized tangerine oranges
  • 10 Tbsp white sugar
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • Icing sugar to dust the cake before serving

Instructions

  1. Put 6 tangerine oranges into medium sized pot and add cold water to cover all the fruits.
  2. Boil for two minutes.
  3. Wash the tangerines and put them into the medium sized pot and cover with cold water and boil for two minutes again. Drain the fruits.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180 C / 356 F.
  5. Butter and flour the baking dish: I used one bundt dish (3 ½ cups volume) and six small ones.
  6. Put the whole tangerines into the blender and blend until you get smooth pulpa. Leave aside.
  7. Now take the medium sized bowl and mix eggs, sugar, butter and coconut flour. Add pulpa, flour and baking powder. Mix well.
  8. Pour the mixture to fill 2/3 of dishes and bake. For small bundts you bake for 22 minutes. Bigger one needs 32 minutes.
  9. To make sure baking is done, insert a toothpick in the middle. If it comes out clean, the cake is done.
  10. While the bunds are baking, prepare the syrup: in a small pot, gently melt sugar in the juice you get by squeezing 4 tangerines.
  11. Add orange zest into the syrup.
  12. When the bundts are baked, leave them aside for 2 – 3 minutes and then take them out and return into the baking dish. That way you make sure they do not stick to the sides of a baking dish.
  13. When returned to the baking dish, cover them with syrup to get moist bundts. I added two table spoons to the small ones and poured the rest over the bigger one.
  14. Take out, dust with icing sugar if you like and serve.
