Cake for breakfast, why not?

Cake for breakfast, why not?

Cake for breakfast, why not?

I am a very, very big cake lover. So it makes sense to treat yourself to a little something for breakfast. Also known as “breakfast cake” in professional circles. All you have to do is give the child a suitable name. 

I recently baked this incredibly delicious recipe using all my favorite ingredients (oatmeal, carrots, and nuts) that I'm dying to share. No joke, what better way to start the day than with a delicious piece of cake? I can't think of anything at the moment...

Of course, the recipe contains neither white flour nor industrial sugar. It is sweetened with applesauce, nut butter/nuts, carrots, apple and coconut blossom sugar. A good portion of oatmeal provides the necessary saturation.

If you do without the frosting, then the cake is even vegan and can be easily packed, e.g. for the office or school. Thanks to the carrots and the apple, it will easily keep for a few days. And I personally think it tastes particularly good straight from the fridge.

Conclusion: I love him!

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Baking time: 45 mins

Servings: 1 cake

Ingredients:

cake

130 g applesauce/apple puree, unsweetened
130 g oatmeal, ground (it is best to grind it yourself in a blender)
120 g carrots, grated
100 ml oat milk (alternatively, other types of plant-based milk or cake milk also work)
75 g walnuts, roughly chopped (chopped hazelnuts also taste great in combination)
75 g coconut blossom sugar
40 g almond butter
2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 pinch of salt
1/2 apple, grated
lemon zest, grated

frosting

100 grams of cream cheese
2 tbsp maple syrup

Preparation:

cake

Preheat the oven to 180°C (top/bottom heat).
Grate carrots and apple. Also chop the nuts. If necessary, grind the oat flakes with the blender if you don't have any ready-ground ones.
Mix together the remaining cake ingredients and stir in the grated carrots, apple and chopped nuts at the end. Put everything in a brownie pan lined with baking paper (mine is 26.5x16.5cm). Alternatively, you can grease the mold with coconut oil - tastes pretty good too.
Bake the cake on the middle shelf for about 35-45 minutes (depending on the oven). Be sure to do a chopstick test towards the end.

frosting

While the cake is in the oven, you can prepare the frosting by mixing the cream cheese with maple syrup. If necessary, add a little more water if the mixture is too hard.

Bon Appetite!
