Recipe's preparation

    30 Second Mandarin Cakes
  1. We have a very produtive mandarin tree so have been trying out a few recipes - this is still a bit rough but the result is pretty good tmrc_emoticons.)


    1. Preheat oven to 180C. Add muffins papers to a muffin tray. (makes 12-15 large muffins). 

    2. Add almonds to bowl, mix 10 sec/speed 8. Set aside

    3.  Place mandarins (broken into quarters, pips and all), peel from one mandarin and butter into mixing bowl and mix 7 sec/speed 8, scrape down the bowl sides and mix for another 15 sec/speed 8.

    4.  Add remaining ingredients, including almonds, and combine 20 secs/speed 4. Check the consistency - add a good glug of milk (depending on size and juicy-ness of mandarins) to get a reasonably thick batter. Mix again for 10 secs/speed 4 

    5.  Spoon large dollops into muffin cases and bake for 30-35 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.  Watch that they don't burn

    I didn't have almonds so used flaxseed (ground down the same as above instructions) and the taste and texture came out beautifully.

    I prefer a sweeter taste (personal preference) so I added a cream-cheese icing (160g sugar milled 10sec, spd 10 to make icing sugar, 90g cream cheese, 45g butter, 1 teaspoon mandarin juice -- all mixed 20sec, spd 6). All up - it was divine!!

    Added bonus is that I prefer this to the orange cake clone because it uses more fruit, less butter and less sugar in the muffins so I can put them in the kids' lunchboxes, knowing it's a really healthy option. Thank you! tmrc_emoticons.)
