But first things first. What is a tangelo? A tangelo is a cross between a tangerine and a pomelo (which is kinda sorta like a grapefruit). It tastes like a tangerine and is orange and juicy. Its juice and rind make this all-occasion cake a delight, and the recipe is quite simple:

Tangelo Teacake
Servings: 4-6
Prep Time: 10 Min
Cook Time: 40 Min

8 tbsp butter
3/4 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup milk
Rind and juice of 1 large tangelo
3/4 cup superfine sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp superfine sugar, to taste

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Beat together the butter, caster sugar, flour, eggs and milk for about 4 minutes.
