Do I have to admit that I hadn't ever tried a clementine? Well, I guess I just did. They are so darn cute though, and from Deb's description and her craving for them, how could I not try them.
While I am making silly confessions here, how about the fact that I seem to have a citrus buying obsession. When the beautiful citrus is in the store I can't seem to help myself from buying it. Like the fact that, even though I made this cake a month ago, I know have another 3lbs of clementines sitting on my counter in a bowl with a full pound of key limes. I haven't decided what to do with either one yet, but I know I'd better do something soon. I have far too many ideas of what I want to do with the key limes and some other ideas for the clementines, but I just need to get around to it.
It certainly was different and it was fun to make though, so I'll call it a success. If you really love clementines and you really love almond meal laden cake - well then, for you, this just might be your new favorite cake.
