Have you ever bought produce in bulk because it was an “unbeatable price”? John did that this month with eight 5 pound boxes of Clementines. While I could go the rest of my life without eating any more, we still have 4 pounds left and I don’t want them to go to waste. None of us can bring ourselves to eat another; we’ve been noshing on them for what seems like forever and a day. 

Leftover ClementinesInstead of watching them brown and go to waste, I decided to make something with them. Since it was almost midnight I didn’t want it to be too complex. Then it hit me. I had a box of Duncan Hines Orange Supreme Cake Mix in the cabinet! Ding Ding Ding, we have a winner!

This is the start of my Clementine recycling project! 4 down – 20 to go. In case you’re in the same boat, here is how I made this delicious cake.

Clementine Orange Cake


  • 1 box Duncan Hines Orange Supreme Cake Mix
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 Clementine Oranges


  1. Spray your baking dish of choice with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Peel and separate the Clementines. Discard any seeds and pith (the white stuff) you find.
  3. Add the oil, eggs, water and cake mix to a food processor and blend until uniform. You can also use a mixer or do this by hand.
  4. Bake according to the directions on the package.
