Clementine Torte Recipe

 

Clementine Torte: Place the Clementines in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer the Clementines for about two hours or until very soft. Then remove the Clementines from the water, place in a strainer, and let the oranges cool completely. (This step can be done a day ahead. Once the oranges have cooled completely, cover, and place in the refrigerator. Bring to room temperature before using.)
 
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Butter and line the bottom of a 9 inch (23 cm) springform pan with parchment paper. 
 
Once the Clementines have completely cooled, cut them into large chunks, remove any seeds, and place the Clementines  (skins and all) in your food processor. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and process until you have a smooth mixture. Then, in a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, baking powder, salt and ground almonds. Add the orange mixture to the almond mixture and whisk or stir to combine. Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for about 45 - 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. If you find the cake over browning, cover the cake with a piece of lightly buttered aluminum foil. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool  completely before removing the sides of the springform pan.
 
This cake is best after it has been allowed to sit overnight. Serve with whipped cream.
 
Makes about 8 - 10 servings.
