  • 250g unsalted butter, softened, roughly chopped
  • 8 tangelos, 2 zested and juiced
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method

  • 1
    Place an oven tray in oven and preheat to 180C. Grease cake pan, then line base and side with baking paper. Place 165g (3/4 cup) sugar and 125ml (1/2 cup) water in a small saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil and cook for 8 minutes or until a golden caramel. Add 15g butter, swirl pan until butter melts, then pour caramel over base of cake pan to cover.
  • 2
    Trim top and base from 6 tangelos, then cut away peel and white pith. Cut into 3mm-thick slices. Taking care as caramel will be hot, arrange enough slices to fit over base of pan. Reserve remaining slices to serve.

    Using an electric mixer, beat 220g (1 cup) sugar, 220g butter, zest and vanilla on high speed until light and fluffy. Sift flour, almond meal, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt into sugar mixture. Add eggs and beat on low speed until combined.
  • 4
    Spoon batter into pan. Combine extra 2 tablespoons sugar, pine nuts and cinnamon in a small bowl, then scatter over batter. Loosely cover pan with baking paper, place on hot oven tray, then bake for 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a skewer inserted into centre comes out clean.

Add remaining 15g butter and reduced juice and swirl pan to combine. Set aside.
