We love this recipe! It includes lots of the foods that form part of our Menopause Diet – soy, oats, linseed, seeds, ginger and spices – all baked into a delicious cake.
Here is the recipe:
100g soya flour
100g wholemeal flour
100g rolled oats
50g sunflower seeds
50g pumpkin seeds
50g sesame seeds
50g almond flakes
200g chopped, dried, non-soak apricots
2 inches stem ginger, chopped
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon malt extract
3 tablespoons apple or pear concentrate
425ml soya milk
Mix all ingredients together and leave to soak for an hour.
Tip into a lined loaf tin and bake for one hour and 10 minutes at 180° (fan)
Test with a skewer. It will come out clean if the cake is cooked.
Eat within three days. Can be frozen.
