OH but this was so good! Made in a traditional loaf pan but should have checked after 30 minutes. As it was I had to trim the sides of a dark crust, very unappealing. Like all wet fruit most of the mandarins went to the bottom but it didn't alter the taste of the loaf so all's well that ends well. I'll be making this one again I'm sure of that. Made for Beverage Tag Game. Thanks so much for sharing this yummy cake recipe.
