Another recipe from my Weight Watchers Mix & Match recipe book. This one is very novel, but give it a try - it's pretty darn nice for something fat free! This is core or 1.5ww points per serving.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to Gas Mark 4 / 180c and line a loaf tin with grase-proof paper.
  2. Blend the chickpeas in a food processor until smooth.
  3. Add the eggs, splenda, baking powder and zests of the orange and lemon. Mix again.
  4. Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and bake for thirty minutes until the cake is golden and a knife comes out clean.
  5. Remove the cake from the oven and use a knife or skewer to make several holes in the top. Spoon a tablespoon of orange juice over the cake and leave to soak for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove the cake from the tin and leave to cool on a wire rack.
  7. Mix the remaining orange juice with the lemon juice.
  8. Cut the cake into 12 slices and serve 2 slices per person, covered in more of the fruit juice and dusted with mixed spice and some extra Splenda.

I will quote the Chef whose recipe this is; "it's pretty darn nice for something fat-free" (!!!) I added my juice, a bit of all-spice and some ginger right to the mixture before baking - which turned out to be a happy mistake because I loved the result. I also baked my mixture in a silicone baking dish instead of a loaf tin, so it was a bit more of a "cake" for me - which was also just fine. The cake itself was luciously moist!! I loved the sweet-tart of the orange and lemon combo and the flecks of texture and color that the zest lent. There was a nice... almost buttery quality, perhaps from the chickpeas... that was delightful. Very light, very refreshing - perfect for summer days or really any day you want to make brighter!!! Thank you Wendy-Bob for a lovely treat!!

I couldn't resist making this as it sounded strange. Strange it wasn't, instead delicious. Very moist and almost a creamy texture. I'm on Core so this was a freebie for me. Definitely a keeper. Thank you. Ellie
