Very good. I'm going to play with the clementine (decrease) to date (increase) ratio and try a cream cheese frosting, too.

Because my daughter is allergic to walnuts, I substituted almonds and used a bit of almond extract to compensate for the more subtle flavor of almond. The recipe held up, and was very tasty. It is also a healthy treat for the kids.

I really liked this cake a lot. It was moist and tasty. Loved the slightly bitter sweet taste of the clemintine rinds. I am going to play with some options when I make it again. Maybe toast the walnuts and use lemon juice for the frosting.

I liked the recipe just the way it was; it reminded me of a light and fluffy fruitcake that has only good fruit in it! Next time, I will do a better job grinding the clementines, though, to avoid big chunks of rind. I can't wait to have another slice, after the flavors have mellowed and blended on my counter overnight.

Fabulous cake! Not too sweet, but wonderfully flavorful and moist. More dense than the typical American cake, this reminds me of a cake I've had in France. My 17 year-old daughter asked me to make this for her birthday cake, and during the holidays, when clementines are plentiful, I make it and bring to parties. It's always eaten up and I've been asked for the recipe many times. It looks gorgeous, too. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.
