[VEGAN & GLUTEN FREE] 🍒 Veggie and Fruit Cake 🥧

in vegan •  5 months ago

Hi everyone!

Today I have a special recipe for you: delicious cake with vegetable and fruits

This cake is vegetable, because it is based on pumpkin puree, which gives it a beautiful orange color. I know that we are still before the pumpkin season, so I used a frozen (or pasteurized in jars) boiled / baked pumpkin puree. I highly recommend to prepare it in the autumn and store in a freezer or pantry :) 

The cake is also vegan, which means that we don't need eggs, butter or cream to prepare it. And it's also gluten-free, because I replaced wheat flour with corn and rice flour. 

Of course, I added a lot of berry fruits to the cake, I like it the most with blackcurrant. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 glass of pumpkin puree
  • 3 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of apple vinegar
  • 1 cup of corn flour
  • 1 cup of rice flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons of xylitol
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon
  • a pinch of Himalayan salt

Preparation:  

Pour to the bowl: pumpkin puree, oil, apple cider vinegar and xylitol and blend.

Then slowly add the mixed together: flour, soda, salt and cinnamon. If the dough is too thick, add 1/3 cup of vegetable milk (I used oatmeal). Check the sweetness and if necessary add more xylitol or unrefined cane sugar.

Mix thoroughly and then pour into a baking tray.

Sprinkle it with a mixture of fruits, choose from: blackcurrant, redcurrant, gooseberry, raspberries, blueberries, as well as cherries or strawberries. You can sprinkle the fruit with a tablespoon of cane sugar. 

Bake it for about 50 minutes in 180 ℃.

Bless you!
