In large bowl beat eggs and sugar until light colored and doubled in volume (about 5 minutes). Add in chopped clementines and mix well.  Then add ground almonds and baking powder and mix until combined. Pour mixture into pan and bake for about 45 minutes (when a skewer comes out clean). Cool in the pan on a rack.   Once cake is cold, remove from pan and pull off any parchment.
