  • INGREDIENTS *vegan recipe

Our note: following the cups method for measurement units, we discovered that the volume of the cup is always the key, you don´t have to weigh the ingredients. A cup has the same volume of ingredients (liquid or dry) as a glass or a mug.

DRY
1 and 1/2 cups wheat flour (plain or all-purpose)
3/4 cup panela sugar or unrefined cane sugar
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1 and 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
A pinch of salt
WET
1/2 cup grated pumpkin or winter squash
1/4 cup peach jam
1/4 cup almond milk (any non-diary milk)
6 tablespoons of veggie oil (any neutral flavored)
Our note: sunflower oil is a perfect choice for cakes.

 

  • RECIPE STEP BY STEP
1. Preheat the oven to 180 º C. Oil and line the base and sides of a bread pan or square cake tin with baking parchment.
Our note: well,  standard dimensions for bread and loaf pans start at 8 ½ by 4 ½ inches. It´s the perfect size for that amount of ingredients. If you multiply the amount by the number of times that you want, you will get a bigger cake. You have tons of different sizes of baking pan depends on the final amount.
2. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl: brown sugar, sifted flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, chopped walnuts and salt until well mixed. 
Our note: we always sift the flour for muffins and cakes. Sifting helps to combine the flour with any dry ingredients.
3. Combine wet ingredients in a bowl: grated winter squash, applesauce, vegan margarine or veggie oil and soy milk until well mixed.
4. Pour the wet mix into the dry bowl. Mix everything slowly with a wooden spoon.
5. Pour the mix into the baking pan. Sprinkle brown sugar on the top.
6. Bake for it around 40 minutes or until browned.
Our note: Don´t open the oven, you can always leave the cake in the oven for a few more minutes.
7.  Remove the bread pan from oven. Leave to cool for awhile. Carefully, peel off the paper and cool a bit on a wire rack.
8. Serve a piece of cake with a generous tablespoon of homemade applesauce. 

Our note: Mmm… This delicious-looking cake irresistible!

 


YOU LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERYDAY…

  • walnut (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) is the nut of any tree of the genus Juglans (Family Juglandaceae). Technically a walnut is the seed of a drupe or drupaceous nut and thus not a true botanical nut. It is used for food after being processed, while green for pickled walnuts or after full ripening for its nutmeat. The walnut is nutrient-dense with protein and essential fatty acids.
  • Pumpkins (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia), like other squash, are thought to have originated in North America. The oldest evidence, pumpkin-related seeds dating between 7000 and 5500 BC, was found in Mexico. Since some squash share the same botanical classifications as pumpkins, the names are frequently used interchangeably.
