Tips To Make A Fail-Proof Tangerine Cake

  • Make sure that the ingredients are at room temperature. The ingredients will mix better.
  • Preheat the oven before making the cake batter.
  • Grease and flour the pan before making the batter.
  • After adding the flour do not over beat the batter, usually mixing for 7 seconds is enough.
  • Do not open the oven door unless 10 minutes have passed since you’ve placed the cake in the oven.
  • The time given in recipes is an estimate, every body’s oven is different, always check the cake 5 minutes before the given time by inserting a skewer or a toothpick in the middle of the cake and if it comes out clean your cake is ready.
  • Keep the cake in the pan for at least 7 minutes before flipping it on a cooling rack.
  • Most important part is when you are using fruit on a cake, make sure that the fruit used tastes good an is not spoiled or bitter.

Baked goods taste much better the next day, so if you plan to have guests over, it is best to do your baking a day ahead.

Cookies, cakes, and baked bread (not stove top bread) always tastes amazing the next day, and to maintain the flavor and texture make sure to store your tangerine cake in an airtight container or a Ziploc bag.

      Thanks for your kind words 🙂 … It is difficult for me to do so at the moment but maybe in the future I’ll have a plugin to do that!

  3. My gosh does this look good. I’ve never even heard of such a thing as a tangerine cake, even though I have seen (and made) orange cakes – but I love tangerine, so I’m so excited to see a cake recipe using them! They look so delicious!

      Thank you Jeff, the tangerine cake tastes amazing and it melts your mouth, you should give it a try 🙂

  4. How would we make this cake without eggs? Can we substitute vinegar for eggs?

    • munatycooking

      Hi Meenu, I never made this cake without eggs, so I’m not sure if replacing egg with vinegar would work, sorry!

  5. Do you have the amounts to make a full bundt cake instead of 6 individual ones?
