Description

Yes. You read correctly. Rutabaga cake. Who'd a thunk it?

Ingredients

1 1/2 cup
flour, all-purpose
1 teaspoon
cinnamon
1 teaspoon
baking powder
1/2 teaspoon
baking soda
1/2 teaspoon
sea salt
3/4 cup
milk
1/4 cup
butter
1/3 cup
honey
1 cup
rutabaga, raw
1 tablespoon
maple syrup
2 teaspoons
ginger
1/2 cup
apple

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350º F and butter a 9”x9” cake pan.

Whisk together flour, spices, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a medium bowl until light. Using a hand mixer beat the honey and melted butter until smooth. Mix dry ingredients into wet on medium speed until just moistened, then add rutabaga and apple and gently fold in by hand until evenly combined.  Batter will be thick. Spread mixture into prepared pan, smoothing surface with damp fingers or a silicon spatula.

Bake in pre-heated oven for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven, place pan on a wire cooling rack, and drizzle maple syrup evenly over the surface of the warm cake. Let cool 20-30 minutes before slicing.
