Im on a bit of a health kick at the moment and im dragging elix along with me. This weekend i’ve been making lots of healthy new dishes and wanted to share the cake i baked this morning with you.
The below uses spelt flour which is nutritionally better than normal wheat flour (you can also use wheat flour for the recipe if you dont have spelt flour). Spelt flour has fewer calories and higher protein content and adds a slightly nutty, sweet flavour. If you want to add extra sweetness to the loaf (it has no added sugar) i would suggest adding raisins or sultanas or dried berries.
450g grated apples
2tsp baking powder
60ml coconut oil (olive oil will also work)
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
260g wholemeal spelt flour
handful of dried berries/raisins (optional for extra sweetness)
This recipe is very easy – mix all the ingredients apart from the flour together until all incorporated. Add the flour and stir through.
Line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper and fill with the mix.
Pop into a pre-heated oven 180 degs for 45-50 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.
Serve sliced, either warm
or cold, lovely with custard, creme freche or fresh berries.
