Mandarin yoghurt slice



With Mandarin oranges aplenty at this time of the year I was toying with the idea of baking a cake with these sweet-tangy citrus.   The cake was moist and dense but on the whole it was delicious served as breakfast, tea or as a snack.  What I liked most was the crispy sugary crust.

  6. I think this recipe is great seeing that the fresh mandarins didn't bleed into the cake batter.

    1. Yes, I thought that the mandarins would be covered up by the batter while baking. Good thing they stayed 'afloat'.
