Gluten-Free Mandarin Pudding Cake
This Gluten-Free Mandarin Pudding Cake is another winner. In this gluten-free dessert recipe, there are no added fats, grains or dairy. Making this gluten-free cake a healthy-ish dessert. The reason I called it a pudding cake is because it is extra moist, the texture is almost like a pudding. It is sooo good!
I wanted this dessert to taste like mandarins. So, to do that, I used mandarins and the mandarin peels. And the mission was accomplished. The gluten-free dessert tastes as if you were eating a pudding made from fresh mandarins.
♥ You may be wondering, how do you add mandarin peels to a cake?
Simple, the mandarins with the peels are slowly cooked until super soft. Then they are blended until smooth. In fact, the entire cake batter is made in the same blender. So very little mess to clean up. My kind of dessert :-). The best part, the recipe has only ten ingredients. And it is so simple to make that even a novice will achieve beautiful results.
♥ Why is this gluten-free mandarin pudding cake considered a healthier dessert?
Very easy to answer this question. The cake is made with fresh mandarins and antioxidant rich peels, almond flour, eggs, fresh lemon juice, a hint of vanilla and some spices. I also added gluten-free, aluminum-free baking powder to keep the cake on the lighter side. To sweeten this dessert, I used low-glycemic coconut sugar. But you can use your preferred sweetener.
You may be wondering where does the moistness comes from since there are no fats added, and the cake is dairy-free. The primary ingredient is the mandarins, and then the almond flour also keeps the cake moist and gives it a soft texture.
To sum up this gluten-free mandarin pudding cake, the recipe is super simple, and the cake has a stunning complex flavour. And I believe this dessert is on the healthier side.
