Recipe : Clemantine Cake

I was watching ‘The secret life of Walter Mitty’, such an inspiring movie and one of my favorite uplifting movies! I couldn’t help having this strong craving for Clementine cake every time it’s mentioned in the movie. The Clementine cake has a mystical role in the movie which made it even more desirable to have!

So I decided to bake a clementine cake myself, with of course the ingredients I already have with me. Now bare in mind the original recipe asks for Almond Flour or meal, but since I did not have almond flour I substituted it with plain white flour.

So here goes!

  • 2 cups white flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
