It is a citrus season in Paraguay. Our trees are loaded with fruits. Tangerines, lemons, and oranges are ready to be picked. And our grapefruits will be ready in a few more weeks.

This recipe was handed by a friend 14 years ago, and I’ve been making it every year. Some of the ingredients are mixed in a blender, making this recipe easy and so quick to make.

blender with tangerines

Tangerines go to the blender with the peel. Some people see this and tell me, but it will come out bitter!

But it does not come out bitter, it comes out bursting with tangerine flavor.

If your tangerines have seeds, remove them before adding them to the blender.

For this cake I use self-rising flour, but if you can’t get it or don’t have it, use all purpose flour and add 2 teaspoons of baking powder.

This cake comes out lighter with self-rising flour.

baked tangerine cake in a pan

I baked this tangerine cake in a flan pan. This type of pan is a little bit smaller than a bundt pan, but if that is what you have, you can use it.

It will fit perfectly well on a loaf pan too.

This tangerine cake is so light and airy. Easy and quick to make.

  1. I tried this recipe last night and it came out great!
    I used whole-wheat flour and baking powder.
    A tad bitter, but pleasantly so, like marmalade.
