I present to you ‘Spiced Marrow Tea Cake’ which has made the house smell utterly divine! The aroma of a cake baking, with the delectable scent of mixed spice and vanilla is truly comforting, and this one even has 1 of your 5-a-day included as an added bonus.
Try it for yourself, I promise you’ll love it!
You will need:
- 1 standard size marrow – peeled, deseeded and grated
- x2 bananas – peeled and mashed
- 240g dairy-free spread (such as Pure)
- 1tsp vanilla extract
- 350g gluten-free plain flour
- 400g golden caster sugar
- 1 tbsp mixed spice
- 1 tsp salt
- 1tsp baking powder
- x2 handful of raisins
- x2 tbsp honey
Preheat the oven to 180c and prepare 2 loaf tins.
In a large bowl, add the marrow, bananas, dairy-free spread and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
In a separate bowl, add the flour, caster sugar, mixed spice, salt and baking powder and stir to ensure everything is well mixed.
Gently add to the bowl with wet ingredients and stir until well combined again, being careful not to over stir.
Pour into the prepared loaf tins, sprinkle over the raisins, and place in the oven to bake for around 45-55 minutes, until golden on top and springy to touch.
Remove from the oven, and immediately brush over the runny honey, then leave to cool before serving.
