Lime Loaf Cake with Silken Tofu and Candied Ginger | © 2018 | | © 2018 |

Delicious and healthy homemade lime cake from scratch with silken tofu and candied ginger. I have topped the cake with a sprinkle of mixed sesame seeds, instead, you can drizzle a lime icing (100 g icing sugar+2 tbsp lime juice) over the cake once it’s completely cooled.

  • 300 g Silken tofu
  • 1 Organic lime
  • 50 g Candied ginger, finely chopped
  • 300 g Fine spelt flour
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • Pinch of salt

  • 100 ml Sunflower oil
  • 100 g Coconut sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla paste
  • 1/2 tbsp Sesame seeds for topping
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a 22cmx11cmx9cm loaf pan with baking paper.
  2. Place silken tofu in a mixing bowl. Rinse the lime with hot water and dry with a clean kitchen towel afterwards. Finely grate the lime zest, then squeeze the juice and add both to the silken tofu. Puree the ingredients with an immersion blender. Fold in finely chopped candied ginger.
  3. Mix together the spelt flour, baking powder and salt. Whip oil, coconut sugar, eggs and vanilla paste until creamy, about 5 minutes. Fold in silken tofu mixture, then add in flour mixture in 2-3 additions.
    Mix until just incorporated.
  4. Spread the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top. Sprinkle the sesame over and bake for 50-60 minutes. Remove and cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. | © 2018 | | © 2018 |
