Steamed Quinoa Cake
Ingredients for the cake:
- 1 cup ground quinoa (125g). [Blend dry quinoa in a food processor to make ground quinoa. Quinoa flour would probably work too but making ground quinoa is cheaper.]
- 1 cup water (240 ml)
- 2 tbsp white almond butter
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp brown sugar (put more if you’re not used to low-sugar desserts) or your favorite sweetener to your own taste
Mix everything together. Put in a cake pan or in several small cake pans and place in a steamer. Steam for 25 to 30 minutes. (If you don’t have a steamer you can use a steamer pot with water at the bottom and a strainer on top to hold the cake.)
I made the raspberry filling mixing raspberries with a bit of white almond butter.
A small serving (on the first photo) is about a sixth of the whole cake and contains 90 calories.
