Honey and butternut squash cake

Submitted by: PIP103

Introduction

This is adapted from a runners world recipe and contains no fat or sugar. I used egg whites instead of whole eggs and wholemeal flour instead of white. Pumpkin could probably also be used instead of butternut squash. This is adapted from a runners world recipe and contains no fat or sugar.

Ingredients

    120g wholemeal plain flour
    250g peeled and de-seeded and finely grated butternut squash
    1/4 tsp low sodium salt
    1 tsp baking powder
    200g runny honey
    1 egg
    3 egg whites
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    finely grated zest of 1 lemon
    100g raisins
    100g dried cranberries
    100g chopped almonds

Directions

Preheat oven to 180C

Grease and line a cake tin (approx 22cm by 5 cm deep)

Add flour, salt and baking powder into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre.

Warm the honey in a microwave to ensure it is runny

In another bowl, whisk the eggs with the honey

Combine the grated butternut squash, vanilla extract and lemon zest with the egg mixture. Then pour slowly into the well made in the flour, gradually combing using a whisk until you create a loose, wet dough.

Fold the raisins, cranberries, almonds into the mixture.

Pour the batter into the cake tin and cook in for approx 35 mins until risen and golden.

Leave to cool and rest before serving.

The original version of the recipe stated this would make 8 servings, however, my version provided 14 decent slices.
