For 2 cakes
360 g tangerines
208 g caster sugar
208 g almond powder
0.5 coffee spoon of salt
1.25 coffee spoon of baking powder
2 cake moulds, 21 x 11 cm
Bring the whole tangerines to the boil in water, with their skins, leaving them covered for 60 minutes.
As soon as they have cooled down slightly, cut their tips and base without removing the skin, and cut in half through the middle and along the width before taking the seeds out. Finally, drip-dry lightly in a colander.
With a blender, mix the tangerines to obtain a fine mixture and mix the eggs. Add the other ingredients with a spatula.
Cover the sides and the bottom of the moulds with baking paper. Finally, pour the dough and cook at 185°C (365°F) for 40 minutes.
