Mandarin cake

This is so lovely, simple and tasty. Lots of different topping options to mix it up too.

6 medium mandarins peeled
250 grams of almond meal ( I always make my own in the food processor, too expensive to buy)
100 grams of sugar
3 eggs
1 tea spoon of baking powder
1/4 cup of desiccated coconut

Put mandarins is a small pot and just cover with water. Simmer until cooked down should only be 1/4 cup of liquid left. Set aside to cool. Preheat oven to 170 degrees. Grease a loaf tin and dust with coconut. Add almond meal, sugar, remaining coconut eggs, baking powder and mandarins in food processor. Process until smooth. Bake until firm 30-40 minutes.

Top with a dusting of icing sugar, cream cheese icing or make a sugar syrup with a splash of contreau.
