Sugar free sultana soya cake!
Actually itís a HRT cake! This cake is not just good for menopausal womenís health but women generally. I donít know what the effect on blokes would be, maybe Jamie Oliverís been eating it slagging off the overweight despite porking up himself, its all the calories in the seeds effecting his male brain(!)
I love this cake. The genius of it is that its full of sunflower and sesame seeds which I don't like but I canít taste them, I can just taste the sultanas and spices, yummy!
Makes 1 big cake:
4oz/100g soya flour
4oz/100g whole wheat flour (if there is not enough wheat flour make up the difference with rolled oats)
ľ litre soya milk
2oz/50g each of sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds and ground almonds.
8oz/200g sultanas (Some of the sultanas can be taken out and replaced with bananas/carrots/dried apricots etc)
1 teaspoon of glace ginger OR 2 pieces stem ginger chopped finely
Ĺ teaspoon each of nutmeg, cinnamon, ground ginger
1 tablespoon of honey OR 1 teaspoon malt extract
Put dry ingredients in to a bowl and mix thoroughly
Add soya milk
Mix well and leave to soak for 1/2 hour (if too stiff add more milk)
Put in to cake tin(s) lined with greaseproof paper
Bake for 1hr10-1hr30 at gas mark 5/180C or until cooked through (use skewer to test)
Scoff a slice every day - on doctorĎs orders(!)
Eat within a week as the cake lacks any preservatives & will go mouldy
1 packet of shop bought ginger cake
Cut ginger cake in to slices
Put under grill and toast until the cake starts to burn slightly
The same could be done with soya cake but with honey instead of butter.
Mood - billoddie hungry!
