Yum, yum, get in our tum.

It’s mandarin season, friends – also known as the time of year for arguing over the best way to eat these juicy fruits: with or without the stringy bits. If you can’t be bothered debating this (just eat the darn pith!), you can turn your attention to baking a scrumptious cake, much like this mandarin and poppy seed treat from The Swirling Spoon. Go all out and bake three tiers if you feel up to it – or take the lazy route and keep it to one layer. Either way, you’ll end up with a delectable afternoon snack, perfect with a cuppa in hand.
