Cookin’ : GF Yellow Cake with Satsuma Mandarins

23 Jan

YUM! πŸ™‚

We receive a lovely weekly delivery of Local Organic Produce from Farm Fresh to You… We love it!

It’s Satsuma season, which is great, because they are so easy to peel, delicious to eat and cute! Though we get a big bag delivered every week… they are coming out our ears!! hee hee! πŸ™‚
Then, of course, I remember that they have a short season and I delight in what I can do with these little orange goodies!

I’ve been sending a few with Dano to work, pre-peeling some to grab on-the-go to eat with a mozzarella stick…
What else is a girl to do!?!?!
MAKE CAKE, of course!! πŸ™‚

I grabbed my Bob’s Red Mill GF Yellow Cake mix and started my experiment!

I sectioned and peeled the thin skin off those little suckers… making about a cups worth of juicy naked Satsuma sections!

Since the mix called for water and I knew I’d have mandarin pieces/juice, I substituted the water with Organic Coconut Milk!

I also made a Mango cake with a frozen Mango I had… same substitution and fruit measurement.


I slathered the cakes with a Whipped Cream/Coconut Milk topping (don’t forget a dash of powdered sugar.)

Sprinkle slices with a touch of cinnamon to enhance flavors and wow your fans! πŸ™‚
