the pudding-like texture,
I called this recipe a pudding cake because it is super 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 fresh mandarins and mandarin peels.
This undeniably delicious dessert tastes as if you were eating a fresh mandarin pudding.
How do you add mandarin peels to a cake?
Simple, the mandarins with the peels are simmered until super soft. Then they are blended until smooth. Finally, the entire cake batter is made in the same blender. So very little mess to clean up. My kind of dessert :-).
The best part, this recipe has only ten ingredients. And it is so simple to make that even a novice baker 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 mandarin peels, almond flour, eggs, fresh lemon juice, a hint of vanilla and a trickle of 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 like demerara sugar or granulated sugar.
You may wonder where 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 crumb texture.
To sum up this gluten-free mandarin pudding cake, the recipe is super simple, and the cake has a stunning complex flavour. And this dessert is on the healthier side.
