This Quick Cake can be made in quickly in a blender and there is a hidden surprise within it, watercress. The addition of watercress adds some leafy green protein and also makes the inside of the cake a lovely light green color, ideal for St. Patrick's Day. This simple cake makes a great base for you to experiment with icings, frostings, or other garnishes. To keep it classy, sprinkle powdered sugar on the finished cake after it has cooled.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch watercress
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter (liquid)
  • 2 cups flour (no-yeast)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • vanilla sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Grease a bundt pan with butter, and sprinkle with flour.
  3. Thoroughly wash and dry the watercress, remove the stalks if you want.
  4. Beat the eggs with the sugar until mixture doubles in volume, then add the liquid butter and the watercress.

This simple cake can be garnished in many ways. If I want it sweeter, I prepare a rich, cake icing flavored with lemon or orange. Individual slices can be garnished with a few berries and a sweet reduction sauce
