Almond Mandarin Cake

2 lbs mandarins
1 1/2 cups almonds
6 tbs flax meal
18 tbs filtered water
1 tbs baking powder
2 tbs real maple syrup (Grade B)
1 tbs molasses
1/8 tsp pure stevia 

Place Mandarins (skins and all) in a giant pot and cover them with water. 
Bring to a boil, then cook on very low heat for two hours. 
Cook them until the skins are nice and soft. 
If you have seeds you’ll have to let them cool a bit cut them in half and de-seed. 
Take the little stem nubs off after you’ve cooked them.
While the mandarins are cooking soak the almonds in filtered water, they will expand and that’s ok!
Place the mandarins in a food processor and liquefy, pour into a giant bowl
Combine the flax meal and water. Let stand at least 5 minutes.
Now put the almonds in the food processor and let them get as fine as you desire. 
Add everything to the bowl. Taste as you go with the sweeteners. 
Pour all this into an oiled cake pan. I suggest coconut oil.
Cook at least 40 minutes for approximately 1hr and 20. 
Keep and eye on it and test with a toothpick.
