Maca and White Chocolate Cake.

Sharing below another recipe with you.. this time my Creative Nature Superfoods recipe demoed at Tatton Park Foodies Festival.

I have also included a Vegan friendly version for you all.. Enjoy! Happy baking, please let me know how it turns out :-)

Ingredients:

  • 150g Vegan Spread (I use Vitalite, but if you are not making it vegan, any unsalted butter would work fine).

  • 100g White Chocolate

  • 3 Medium Eggs

  • 150g Light Brown Sugar

  • 150g Golden Caster Sugar

  • 150g Gluten Free Self Raising Flour (I use Doves)

  • 30g Maca Powder

  • 1tsp Baking Powder

  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

  • 50g Chopped Nuts

For the show I also used Renshaw's white chocolate fondant to spread on top of the cake, so you could either melt some more white chocolate and drizzle over the cake.. or leave it naked and just decorate with chopped nuts :-)

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease a brownie tin.

  • Whisk the eggs in a bowl with the two types of sugar.

  • Add in the vegan spread to the egg mix whilst still mixing.. (it will curdle but this is normal until the dry ingredients hit.. don't panic!)

  • Melt the white chocolate and then add to the egg mix along with a tsp of vanilla extract.

  • In a separate bowl sift the flour, maca and baking powder. Fold this to the wet mix along with the chopped nuts.

  • Once all is combine, pour into a lined/greased tin and bake for 30 minutes. (I then cover the cake and allow it to cook for a further 5/10 minutes until golden brown, and until a skewer comes out clean).

  • Once the cake is cool spread over the white chocolate fondant, or additional melted white chocolate and decorate with chopped nuts.
