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.
Instead 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
- Spray your baking dish of choice with non-stick cooking spray.
- Peel and separate the Clementines. Discard any seeds and pith (the white stuff) you find.
- 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.
- Bake according to the directions on the package.
- Frost with your favorite frosting or glaze and enjoy!
Stay tuned to see how else I make sure these leftover clementines get used. I have some yummy ideas floating around in my head. Leave me a comment and let me know what you would do with your leftover clementines.
