Spiced Clementine Cake

Spiced Clementine Cake

I adapted this spiced clementine cake from a recipe I found on Unicorns in the Kitchen. I had a bowl full of clementines on the counter that weren’t getting eaten and looking like they were days from going bad so I went in search of recipes. I found this simple and easy recipe for a clementine cake with lots of spices and served topped with whipped cream. It’s a simple cake, that isn’t too sweet and is very tasty–my whole family loved it, especially my husband.

How to Make Spiced Clementine Cake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat an 8 x 8 baking dish with cooking spray.

Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, ginger, allspice, cardamom, and salt together in a bowl; mix well.

Whisk together the melted butter and white sugar until well combined. Add the eggs and whisk. Add in the fresh clementine juice and zest then whisk until well combined.

Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until incorporated.

Pour the cake batter in the prepared baking pan and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out with very little crumb. Remove from the oven and allow the cake to cool completely.

When ready to serve, sprinkle the top with powdered sugar then slice. Serve with whipped cream on top, if desired. Enjoy.

    Definitely going to try this with some oranges I need to use up! Thanks for posting this.

  2. My mom used to make an orange spiced cake that was a little bit similar to this (hers had a much drier texture, though). This looks excellent — thanks.

  3. I am so bad about overbuying citrus and then letting it go bad. This looks like such a great way to use it up! Love the spice in it.

  4. i do believe this is the first clementine cake i’ve ever seen, and it’s a looker! i love a simple snack cake like this–great recipe!
