No pulp? Use grated carrot or beetroot!

wortel_pulp_cake

You just wanna cook all day, are granddaughter of a baker, try not to waste any food and juicing fanatically since the past month. Pretty inevitable that you start to experiment with juice pulp! Sounds like me ;).

From the moment I started juicing I thought ‘hey, that pulp, can you still use that?” So I started looking for the different options. Result: there are quite a few nice things you can make from veggie pulp. In the beginning I was juicing mostly beet and carrot (right now I’m a little more in the green juice phase). The pulp of these veggies happen to be really good for baking.

Veggie pulp cake

I started making pulp cake. Later on cookies and burgers. Sometimes I make two cakes a week. I mean, I have the pulp and it’s pretty easy. As a experienced veggie pulp baker, you’ll have a delicious cake in your oven glove within an hour. It’s really is a piece of cake!

I think that most of my friends know my veggie pulp cake by now. Of course I took a cake to the Tarwegraskoning. They love it!

Experimenting for the best veggie pulp cake!

I experimented a lot before I developed the right recipe for the veggie pulp cake. Viola, see it here :-D!

You have a sweet tooth? Add the optional banana and dates.

Are you making one? I’m very curious about your result. Let me know!

    I made this cake with carrot and celery pulp. Wasn’t sure if the celery would work but it takes good! Added cashews and chopped dried apricots as didn’t have raisens or dates. Very moist with a great texture and flavour. Will definately make this as my regular weekly cake to use up my pulp. Thank you! (p.s is there a vegan version of this that we could try – without the eggs please?)

      Hi Suzie! I’m so happy to hear that :)). With cashews and apricots sounds great!
      For a vegan version I’d try it with chia seeds. That should work.
      Good luck!

    Hi,

    I’ve made this cake 4 times so far! It tastes delicious and my parents love that their pulp isn’t going to waste. I used beet, carrot and apple pulp and added walnuts, raisins, almonds and dates. The first time was a flop (because I used the pulp of lemon, orange and pineapple as well and it was coming between the teeth), so I learnt my lesson. I put more cinnamon than what your recipe requested because my family are fans of cinnamon and it tasted divine.

    Also made a cream cheese topping for it, similar to what you put on a carrot cake and omg, it’s so delicious. Thank you for this recipe. I have taught it to my mum as well 🙂

    I made it using apple, carrot, blueberry & pineapple pulp. I did cupcakes for easy grab n go. So delicious!! Now to figure out to do with all pulp from the greens (spinach, kale, cucumber, sweet potatoes, beets, ginger, turmeric)
