Turnip Spice Cake

Turnip Spice Cake

Okay, I confess - we aren’t all that keen on turnips. I like them alright raw, with raisins, as a snack, but take as little of the mashed turnip Thanksgiving dish as is possible while still being polite.I don’t usually advocate hiding vegetables in sweets – I think people, especially kids, should learn to like the vegetable for its own taste; but with turnip all rules go out the window.

2 ½ cups whole wheat flour

¼ tsp salt

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

¼ tsp cloves

½ cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup soured milk (if you don’t have sour milk, combine 1 T lemon juice and 1 cup milk, and let it sit for 5 minutes)

2 tsp baking soda

1 ½ cups cold mashed turnip

1 ½ cups raisins

Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine flour, salt and spices. Cream butter and sugar. Stir the baking soda into the soured milk; add to sugar mixture. Mix in the turnip and raisins. Combine with the dry ingredients. Bake in a 13 x 9 pan for 40 minutes.
