My two eldest boys are picky eaters, one more so than the other. They don’t eat many vegetables (if any!) and not much fruit.
I have had to start being sneaky, trying to find ways to hide fruit and veggies. This recipe has proven very popular in my household. It is great as snacks, or for lunch boxes.
1 carrot, grated
1/2 small zucchini, grated
Large handful baby spinach, finely chopped
2 apples, grated
1 pear, grated
40 ml oil
1.5 cup Self raising flour
60 ml milk
1) Combine all grated fruit and vegetables in a large bowl. Add eggs, combine thoroughly.
2.) Add milk and oil to bowl, mix thoroughly. Slowly sift flour through mixture in parts.
3) Add more flour or milk to reach desired consistency (the thicker the mix, the denser the cake)
4.) Pour mix into a large, grease cake tin, or separate into muffin tins.
5.) Bake at about 160 degrees celsius until golden and cooked through.
