Am I going mad? Which Nigella book has the Clementine Cake in it?

I know I have made the Clementine Cake before. The one with almonds and no flour.

I only have two Nigella books and I can't find the recipe in either.

And yes, I know the recipe is online but my printer is up the creek and I am just so sure I have the recipe in a book. But I don't...

I don't have How To Eat.

How odd.

I have Forever Summer and Domestic Goddess.

Must be going mad after all grin.

Definitely How To Eat.

Righty. Will copy it out by hand (by which I mean myther at dh until he fixes the printer).

Thanks all.

Oh wait, another question; I think I did it as a pudding. Would it work as a cake for tea?

Just read the bit about your printer...

Sorry! (insert stupid lady emoticon!)

Hope it was yummy.

HuffwardlyRudge Sun 12-Jul-09 11:27:29

Are you sure you made it right Simples?

Simples Sun 12-Jul-09 11:28:23

i think its leaving the skin on

Simples - I'm with you, I thought it was horrible.

I liked it. Although having seen it's a six egg recipe I think my friends might have to put up with less fancy cake. [stingy]

Id rather have a nice plan VS anyday

I think the problem is that clementines can be hit and miss, and you don't know until you peel them whether they've got much flavour or not. Of course, by the time you've boiled it for an hour it's a bit late...

Sure you didn't leave the pips in Simples? Mine's always delicious smile.
