Serves 8 Preparation Time: 20 minutes Cooking Time: 45 minutes

Blogger Brit Woodruff uses the Dualit Hand Blender to make this ginger loaf - lightly spiced and kept moist with the addition of yoghurt to the cake mix.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups buckwheat flour
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup plant based yoghurt e.g. soy or almond
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 4 tbsp vegan butter at room temperature (plus extra for greasing the tin)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 cups icing sugar
  • Water drained from 1 x 400g tin of chickpeas
  • To decorate:
  • Figs
  • Pomegranate seeds
Method

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Prepare the loaf tin by greasing it with vegan butter.

2. In a large mixing bowl, add vegan butter and coconut sugar. Beat together using the Dualit Hand Blender with the hisk attachment until smooth.

3. Add the vanilla extract and yoghurt then whisk again.

4. Add the buckwheat flour, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda to the bowl.

5. Start to gently whisk together adding the almond milk bit by bit, until the batter comes together and is thick.

6. Pour the batter into the prepared tin. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Icing

7. While the loaf is in the oven, make the royal icing by sifting the icing sugar into a mixing bowl.

8. Add the chickpea water and with the Dualit hand blender and clean whisk attachment, whisk until the mixture is thick and glossy (to make the icing thicker, add more sugar and to thin it out, add more chickpea water).

9. When the loaf is completely cool, use a spatula to evenly spread the royal icing over the top of the loaf.

10. Decorate with fresh figs and pomegranate seeds and enjoy!
