Tangerine Tea Cakes

Makes 8

150 grams whole wheat pastry flour

10 grams baking powder

1 gram baking soda

1 gram sea salt flakes

Zest & juice from 1 lemon wedge

Zest & juice from 1 tangerine

25 grams granulated maple sugar

1 medium egg (42 grams; I used a pullet)

2 tablespoons (30 ml) mild flavored extra virgin olive oil

1/2 cup (120 ml) cashew milk

Preheat your oven to 350Fº (180Cº). Line an 8 cup muffin tin with parchment liners.

Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, lemon & tangerine zests to a medium bowl. Whisk to blend.

Add the sugar, egg, oil, and juices to a small bowl. Whisk vigorously until well mixed. Add the flour mixture and milk to the bowl. Using a wooden spoon, stir just until blended, and there are no visible signs of flour. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tins.

Bake for 15 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool completely before adding the glaze, if using.
