In today’s world, I think lots of young people want to head to their kitchen and cook. But, because of time and other distractions, they want to cook quickly and still get some really great results. As the mother of GenX’ers and the grandmother of Millennials, I hear them say they love eating at home but need quick, easy and simple recipes.
Well, this mandarin pound cake is about as easy as it gets. And, it’s about as good as it gets in taste! You’re going to get a double wowzeee of these fresh juicy mandarins baked into the cake batter and almost ‘melted’ on top as the cake bakes. And, because you’re using a cake mix, you’re skipping some steps of pulling out ingredients that can make cake-making kind of overwhelming.
Some Cake Ideas
Moist and tender, this cake is perfect with a cup of coffee or tea. But, if you want to really dress it up and add more then think about ice cream, maybe lemon Greek yogurt, whipped cream, and, yes, even more mandarin oranges. Making a mandarin sauce would be so simple. Just mash up a cup of mandarins in a small sauce pan, add one-half cup of orange marmalade, let it come to a simmer slight sizzle boil, add a fourth cup of your favorite liqueur. Let it simmer, then drizzle on top this luscious cake slice!
You see these mandarins, full of vitamin C and nature’s perfect naturally sweet treat are truly versatile whether you’re thinking savory or sweet.
