Gluten free mandarin pandoro cake
At Christmas you can prepare whatever you like!
Yes, at Christmas everything is also granted an extra slice of pandoro.
But what if Pandoro was an easy cake to prepare, without butter, dairy and gluten free? It would be a great idea don’t think. In this way, we will avoid having to deal with the scales!
Today I leave you my idea; Mandarin Pandoro cake.
The aroma of mandarin blends with cinnamon and ginger creating a citrusy, spicy and greedy flavor.
The recipe is quick and easy, it does not require hours of leavening, perfect for someone like me who has a strange relationship with leavened products.
The Mandarin Pandoro Cake is a very soft, light dessert, suitable for celiacs, lactose intolerant and for those who love to indulge in an extra cuddle without giving up!

In the mixer / bowl pour all the dry ingredients, except the yeast, mix well. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and honey with a whisk and add them to the mixture, pour the milk and oil and continue to mix until the mixture is smooth and homogeneous. Put the sliced mandarins, distributing them well, finally add the yeast.
Butter with coconut oil a pandoro mold 750 g , pour the mixture inside and bake. Cook at 180 degrees for 45-50 minutes.
Before taking it out of the oven, check the cooking with a toothpick.
Let the cake cool completely and in the meantime prepare the mandarin glaze.
