Lesson learned...

I make my Whole Orange Cake as often using lemons as I do using oranges, so this time I decided it would be great made with mandarins - i much prefer eating mandarins! so i bought some nice large clementines (I think, the firm ones) and used them this afternoon. Only to end up with a cake that was just too bitter - yes, even with all that sugar in it. none of us liked it. Not to mention it was much more fiddly getting the mandarins ready (they were full of tough white membranes I had to cut out, as well as heaps of seeds. so lesson learned, mandarins are OUT!
