It started when Kate Saunders

was challenged to find a way

of getting a friend's child to eat

more vegetables. She came up

with a chocolate brownie recipe

that used spinach as its main ingredient.

Such substitutions have snowballed

into the unique cookbook - Cakes with

Secret Ingredients, from Aubergine

to Zucchini - published via her awardwinning business, Blackberry Cottage.

While many people wouldn't hesitate

to put carrot in a cake, the recipes in

this book include somewhat unexpected

combinations, such as savoy cabbage

mocha torte, and Jerusalem artichoke,

mango and lime cake. There are festive

options too, such as sweet potato mince

pies and a turnip Yule log as well as a

Halloween-themed turnip and pineapple

cake.

"We have taken things a step further,

with a whole alphabet of cakes, cookies,

ice creams and jams, packed with secret

ingredients," says Saunders. "If you ever

have a spare bulb of fennel, a glut of

tomatoes, maybe a bag of frozen peas or

a tin of sweetcorn, you'll be able to make

them into a range of exciting dishes."

There are recipes for everyone -

including gluten-free, dairy-free, refined

sugar free, egg-free and vegan options.

"I have always had a passion for cooking

and baking so I took up the challenge to

find a way of including vegetables into

baked products. However, I didn't want

the vegetables to be a token gesture;

they needed to be the biggest ingredient,"

says Saunders.

Initially selling cakes at a local market,

the business has grown and she now

works from a bespoke shepherd's hut

based in Berkshire, using locally-sourced

ingredients, including eggs laid by her

own hens and vegetables grown just

yards from her 'office'. Saunders now

supplies a number of delis, farm and tea

shops and is regularly to be found at food

festivals. She also runs cookery courses

Kate Saunders and, below, her savoy cabbage mocha torte.

where attendees can learn how to bake

cakes using vegetables, unrefined sugars

and alternatives to traditional flour.
