Clementine and Chocolate Chip Cake

I made the proto-type for this clementine cake by digging through the kitchen to see what we had. My seven-year-old son adored it. This is the second iteration and I found it's a winner. The whole fruit and whole flour provide a decent amount of nutrition for a dessert. The texture came out surprising smooth. Enjoy.

1 Bundt(R) cake


  • 4 clementines, peeled and segmented

  • 1 medium apples - peeled, cored and chopped

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a fluted tube pan (such as Bundt®).

  2. Puree clementines and apple in a food processor or blender. Place in a large mixing bowl or on in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add sugar, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla. Mix well. Add whole wheat and all-purpose flours, baking soda, and salt. Blend and then add chocolate chips for a quick incorporation. Transfer to the prepared cake pan.

  3. Bake in the center of the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour.

Cook's Notes:

Do not add water to the fruit while pureeing. It will throw off the hydration something fierce!

Use a banana instead of the apple for some extra deliciousness! And you can substitute mandarin oranges for the clementines.
