"Green" Cake Recipe


“Green” Cake Recipe

Serves 1 large or 2 smaller cakes.
Ingredients:
5 Egg Whites
2 TBSP Organic Cacao Powder
¼ Cup of Soy Flour
6 oz. Baby Spinach
9 oz. Baby Carrots
Baking Dish
Cooking Spray

Instructions:
Spray baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
Blend all ingredients in blender (or the Ninja). It blends better if you layer the ingredients as listed above. The carrots weigh the spinach down and prevent having to keep opening the blender and mixing. Blend well and poor in to baking dish. For time sake, I have been cooking the “cake” in the microwave for about 10 minutes. The center is the last area to cook, so little press to make sure no batter sticks to your finger. If not, cake is done.

Another option would be to split the batter in two and bake in small loaf tins at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until edges are dark brown.

I have been experimenting with different toppings from Walden Farms - chocolate sauce, chocolate syrup and pancake syrup. I also added coconut flakes recently and soy yogurt is always an excellent option.

Enjoy!
