This is a quick easy cake. Very moist. I got this recipe from my Sister-in-law. Good with fresh strawberries!
Mandarin Orange Cake
1 cup rice flour
2 egg whites
2/3 cups sugar
1 11 ounce can mandarin oranges drained
1 tsp baking soda( I have also used cream of tarter)
3/4 tsp of salt
1/4 tsp of vanilla flavoring (I added this/ not necessary if you don't have it)
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tsp grated orange rind
1/4 cup sugar
(the recipe calls to add sugar to this, but I use Tropicana 50 which has cut the sugar content but is already sweet)
1. Stir together the flour, 2/3 cup of sugar, baking soda (cream of tarter) and salt. Add the egg whites and drained mandarin oranges and vanilla and stir vigorously until everything is well blended. Don't worry that there will not be enough liquid for a batter; the mandarin oranges break into pieces and give off juice.
2. Pour into a greased 8 inch square pan and bake at 350 for 25 or 30 minutes. It will start to turn a light brown. Prick holes all over the warm cake with a fork.
3. Stir the orange juice, sugar and orange rind together in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Spoon over the cake. Best served warm. OR it is really good refrigerated!!!! Yum.
