4 oz/110g granulated sugar

250 ml boiling water

8 oz/225g self raising flour

2 tsps ginger

1 tsp cinnamon

2 tbsps hot water

1 egg (beaten)

How to bake

Dissolve the sugar in the water in a large flat pan (e.g. skillet or frying pan) until it forms a syrup. Add the sliced clementines and simmer until tender (about 5 minutes).  Allow to cool. Preheat the oven to 170 C (150C Fan), 325F, Mark 3. Grease and line an 8 inch/ 20cms cake tin. Arrange the clementine slices on the bottom of the tin.

Bake in a warm oven for about 50-55 minutes. 

A safe, happy and healthy New Year to all!
