Do you have any leftover parsnips?

If you do, then this squidgy chai spiced parsnip cake is for you. If you haven’t, then go get some! This cake is worth it!

I love this cake – it’s sticky with treacle and spiced with ginger, allspice, cinnamon and cloves. Then glazed with a zingy lemon drizzle.

The base for this cake is inspired by the ginger cake recipe from my new cookbook My Vegan Year as it’s my favourite cake recipe to date. With added grated parsnip, which I promise works really well.

I hope you enjoy sending love. Niki xxx.

    I made this last night. The texture is lovely! I didn’t have almonds so I put ground peanuts, and I didn’t have treacle so I put in leftover xmas mincemeat instead. Can’t wait to make the original recipe now.
