Healthy apple cake

This is virtually the same as the Gluten-Free, High Fibre carrot cake that I made not long ago. It isn’t very sweet but I think it tastes pretty nice and it’s healthy so why not?

Ingredients:

75ml olive oil

155g oat bran

125g vitafiber (powdered form)

25g chia seeds

1tsp cinnamon

130g apple, grated (I used bramley apple but you could use a sweeter one for a sweeter cake)

1 egg and 1 one egg white, beaten

2tsp baking powder

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (360 degrees Fahrenheit).
  2. Mix the oat bran, chia seeds, vitafiber, cinnamon, grated apple and baking powder in a bowl.
  3. Add the beaten egg and olive oil to the mixture then pour it into a greased (or sprayed) and lined cake tin.
  4. Bake for 50 minutes.

  1. Hey Jack! I am a rubbish cook. Have never cooked cake in my life, but you seem to know what you are talking about. As you know, I am lactose intolerant. Do cakes generally not contain milk? I have always avoided because I thought they did😣 ( you are not officially witness to my terrible cooking skills and lack of culinary knowledge 😂🤣😂)

    A nice post. Sounds delicious!
