Preparation

Spray the sides and bottom of a spring form pan with cooking spray and coat with flour. Dump out excess flour and set aside.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed 10-15 minutes.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla and mandarin oranges. In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking soda and salt.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet, whisking just until combined. Pour batter into the prepared springform pan and place directly on the grill grate.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick come out clean when inserted into the center of the cake. Remove from grill and let cool 15 minutes before cutting.

For the the brown sugar glaze: Heat the butter and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved.

Slowly add heavy cream and vanilla (use caution as it will bubble up and spatter) while whisking and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and season with salt.

To serve, place a slice of cake on the plate, drizzle with brown sugar glaze, top with whipped cream and chopped mandarins. Enjoy!
