A soft, spongy and sweet cake that is simply mouthwatering and more healthy and nutritious than your store-bought cake!

Made with polenta, red lentils and apricot jam, you’ve found yourself a delicious recipe that probably could become one of your favorite loaf cake recipes.

The cake has a pleasantly gritty texture thanks to polenta. It also contains red lentils, which you most likely wouldn’t know unless you were told so. Red lentils are high in protein and fiber, rich in B-vitamins, a great source of iron, help to lose weight, and the list could go on and on and on…

Try it with tea, coffee or vanilla cream and you’ll not be disappointed.

  • 130 gr dried red lentils
  • 125 ml oil
  • 130 gr granulated sugar
  • 100 gr all-purpose flour
  • 75 gr maïs polenta
  • 90 gr apricot jam
  • 3 eggs
  • 0,5 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 0,5 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
Boil lentils in water according to the instructions on the package*.
Drain the lentils and press out excessive liquid with a spoon.
Use the blender (hand blender is also good to use) to blend together the lentils, oil and eggs for about 20 seconds. 
Then add the remaining ingredients to the lentil mixture and blend until a paste. It won't be a thick batter, but that's how it should look.
Place in a greased 25x12 cm cake tin and bake for 45-50 minutes just below the center of the oven until a knife comes out clean.
  • *I cooked 130 gr lentils in 510 ml water for about 15 minutes, but cooking time depends on the thickness of the lentils you use.
