Yummy Carrot Cake
Can be eaten for breakfast on the go, afternoon or evening snack. Again this cake has ginger in it to help curb morning sickness and also high in iron and fiber.
1/2 cup olive oil
1 1/2 cups carrot pulp (put carrots in food processor)
1/2 cup apple pulp (put apple in food processor)
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup blackstrap molasses or carob syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg or 2 small eggs
1 1/2 cups wholegrain flour or spelt flour or other flour of choice
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp nutmeg ground
1/2 tsp ginger ground
1/2 tsp cinnamon ground
1/2 cup raisins
Mix the pulps and oil together, add the honey, molasses, vanilla and eggs and mix together well. Sift together the dry ingredients and add to the mixture, stir until blended. Add the raisins, pour into an oiled baking pan and bake for half an hour or until cooked through. Please note that this cake is a dense moist cake.
Note: You can play around with the spices. I like it quite spicy and hence add more of the spices. J
