Satsuma Cake

Niall asked me to make this cake from Girl Interrupted Eating. He had it at a friend's house years ago and still remembers it. We got ground almonds at the store, but I accidentally only bought 100 grams. Since I can't smell or taste and my brother is here but doesn't eat sweets, I only made 1/3 of the recipe.


2 clementines (or in our case, satsumas)
2 eggs
85 grams sugar (just over 1/3 cup)
100 grams of ground almonds (maybe about 1 cup?)
1 heaping teaspoon of baking powder

Put the satsumas in a pot of water and boil for 20-25 minutes. This step ended up being a problem for me because I didn't put in enough water, left the kitchen, the satsumas burned and I couldn't smell them!

We tried to air out the kitchen and started over.

After successfully boiling the citrus, I drained and chopped into pieces, removing seeds. I put the skins, pith and peel into the blender. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius (375 degrees Fahrenheit)

Then I added the eggs and blended. Then added the sugar, almonds and baking powder and mixed some more.

The recipe made six cupcakes. Bake for 25 minutes and remove and cool.
