Parsnip Cake

Parsnip has been one of my favorites veggies, since I moved to Switzerland. It can be eaten row, but I like it roasted because it’s a bit sweeter;) I got this recipe from my friend, Selina, who is making the best winter parsnip soups!!


  • 125gr parsnip, grated
  • 125gr coconut sugar
  • a pinch of cardamom
  • 1 tsp apple vinegar
  • 50g ground hazelnuts
  • 100ml rapsoil
  • 250gr spelt flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp cacao
  • 200gr apples, grated

How to make it

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. In a large bowl, mix dry and wet ingredients separately.
  3. Whisk all together and once the mixture is smooth, pour it into a cake pan.
  4. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes.
