Once again I wanted a cake or something sweet that had no added sugar, and this one "ticked all the right boxes"!

With no egg yellow, butter or sugar, I can eat this "healthy" cake!

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Serves: 8

125 g cottage
1 cup dates, pitted
Peel from ½ mandarin, grated
4 egg whites
3 small ripe bananas, mashed
1 very small apple, grated
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp walnuts, chopped
1½ cups wholemeal SR flour
1 tsp bicarb of soda

Preheat the oven to 175°/155° fan forced, and grease a 20 cm cake tin - I used one with a ring in the middle but had problems with it sticking.

Put the dates and mandarin peel in a food processor and mince finely - make sure you take pips out first, as I forgot!

Add the cottage cheese and continue till it is quite smooth.

Beat in one egg white at a time.

Add the mashed bananas, apple and vanilla, and then the walnuts.


Sift the flour and bicarb of soda, and fold this through the mixture gently.

Bake for about 35 minutes - do not overcook.


Cut when cool, and serve.
