250g self raising flour (white or wholemeal)
2 teaspoons baking powder
100g brown sugar or stevia
100g dates (chopped)
150ml coconut or olive oil
2 medium eggs beaten
350g grated mixed carrots and beetroots
Grate the beetroots and carrots into a bowl. Then mix the eggs and oil together and slowly add the flour, baking powder and sugar. Once mixed it may look a bit thick but don’t worry, add the dates, carrots and beetroots and the mixture will loosen up. Stir well.
Put into a 20cm cake tin, 160 degrees for an hour.
There are lots of vegetables in this cake!! moist, earthy and better for you than most cakes!!!
Tip: grate the veg in an electronic food processor- it’ll save you time and no purple fingers! (it takes me 10 mins to prep for this cake, then I just have to wait for an hour for it to cook, so perfect for people with little time and/or with a baby!)
