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:
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 tsp superfine sugar, to taste
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Beat together the butter, caster sugar, flour, eggs and milk for about 4 minutes.
Spoon the mixture into a greased and lined 8” round tin and bake at 350°F for 35-40 minutes or until well risen and golden brown.
Mix together tangelo rind, tangelo juice and the extra caster sugar and spoon over warm cake.
Enjoy with a cup of tea or a breakfast spread. You can’t go wrong with this simple and tasty cake.
