Clementines -- small, veritably sweet, and usually seedless -- it's no wonder they are the darling of the citrus family.
After "boiling the heck out of" a batch of the tiniest mandarin oranges, blogger A Dash of Sass purées the fruit and mixes in ground almonds, eggs, almond meal, agave nectar, baking powder and vanilla extract. Once the flourless, butterless cake batter is baked off, the resulting mini cakes take a dunk in a silky dark chocolate glaze.
Given the dainty size of these baby cakes, they are positively charming with a spot of afternoon tea or for a resolution-friendly winter dessert.
The hardest part? Refraining from humming "Oh My Darling, Clementine" while eating.
