Ingredients for 10 slices, 163 kcal per slice

  • 200 g whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin spice
  • 25 g walnuts
  • 25 g pumpkin seeds
  • 2 small oranges
  • 50 g dates (pitted)
  • 50 g raisins
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 g carrot


Preheat the oven to 180C °. Line a rectangular cake tin with baking paper. Mix the whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin seeds and pumpkin spice in a large bowl. Chop the walnuts coarsely and add to the bowl. Zest the peel of the oranges, discard the rest of the peel, and add the zest and oranges to a mixer/food processor, along with the dates, raisins, eggs and carrot. Mix until smooth. Mix this wet mixture through the dry mixture in the other bowl. Pour the batter in the cake tin and put in the oven for about 40 minutes or until it is cooked (insert a toothpick and when it comes out clean (without dough) it’s done). Let it cool down before you enjoy it! It can be cut into 10 slices.
