Happy New Year my friends. Hope you all had a lovely time with your family and friends over the holidays. I am starting the New Year with a gluten-free mandarin orange pudding cake. I love this mandarin cake. There is no added fats, grains or dairy so I would consider this cake on the healthier side. I called this dessert a pudding cake because it is super moist and has the consistency of a pudding. I used whole mandarin oranges including the skin which gives this cake a delightful mandarin orange flavour. To make this cake, first, you boil the oranges, then place everything into a food processor or high-speed blender and bake. It’s that simple! Things I love about this cake are, it is super easy to make, it’s flavourful, moist and pretty healthy. So, the year has started well, a simple dessert with complex flavour on the healthier side. Enjoy 🙂
