No Added Sugar Cake

I have been meaning to post this No Added Sugar Cake  recipe for a while, it came about after two special friends each baked me a special Fussy Foodie friendly cake for my birthday, they each were amazing but I thought combined together would taste even better so here is the result.

  • 1 mug of rice flour
  • 1 tsp Gluten free baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 1/4 mugs of water
  • 1 mug of chopped dates
  • 1 mug of raisins, sultanas and cranberries
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 mug of grated carrot
  • ¾ mug of soya milk (or other milk e.g Oatly)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 mug of chopped nuts – (pecan and almond are favourites but also good with walnuts
  • Small half sized tin of pineapple (cut into small pieces)

Fat free sugar free cake

No Added Sugar Cake Recipe:

In a small bowl, sieve together the flour, baking powder & baking soda and set aside.

Combine the water, dates, raisins, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Place in a bowl with the shredded carrots – can allow to cool.

Whisk egg till light and fluffy and then whisk in the soya milk about 80% so can play with consistency later. Then add this to the flour mix and fruit mixture and stir.

Add the chopped nuts and pineapple and mix well – adjust at this point with soya milk or flour to get a cake-like consistency.

Pour mixture into a lightly greased cake tin.

Bake at 180 degrees for 50 mins (fan oven), or until a toothpick comes out clean.

This No Added Sugar Cake works really well to cut and freeze for when you fancy a treat and even sugar fans love it too!

    Oh Miranda – I made this cake today and I don’t know what happened. Don’t get my wrong it was gorgeous but upon taking it out of the tin it completely broke and when trying to cut it after it had cooled it went into bits. It now resembles crumbs, but I am still going to eat it. Any thoughts why it went so wrong?

    Hello Cheryl, the only thing I can think is that the mixture maybe needed some more moisture. If you try it again I would add some more water or soya, as the mixture might need to be wetter.

    Good luck trying it again – Miranda

    PS Let me know if you think this isnt it.
