Clementine Fondant

If you enjoyed my orange cake recipe, here is another version with clementine. This is the first fondant I ever cooked when I was only 15 years old and I still enjoy this recipe so easy that you can’t fail!


  • 4 clementines
  • 3 eggs
  • 150 g flour T45
  • 150 g butter
  • 150 g sugar
  • 20 g icing sugar
  • 11 g baking powder


Pre-heat the oven at 180°C. In a big mixing bowl, beat the eggs with sugar using a whisk, then, add the flour, baking powder and melted butter. Wash and zest 3 clementines before squeezing them. Add the clementine zests and juice into the dough and mix. Grease and flour a cake pan and pour the dough inside. Place it into the oven and bake 35 minutes. After removing the cake from the oven, wash and zest the last clementine, then, squeeze it too. Pour the zests and juice into a sauce pan with the icing sugar and place on the burner at high temperature. Whisk until boiling, then, remove from the burner and pour it on top of the cake using a brush. Wait for the cake to cool down before removing from the cake pan and serve.
