Parsnip, Apple & Chocolate Cake

The recipe is in two parts - the cake and the milk chocolate mousse.

For the cake, you'll need:


  • Grate the parsnips and apples and stir through the vegetable oil and dark brown sugar.
  • Add in the eggs and mix well.
  • Sieve the flour, baking powder and cinnamon together then fold into the mix.
  • Fold through the grated fresh ginger root and dark chocolate callets (chips).
  • Spoon the cake mixture into cupcake cases and bake in a pre-heated oven 180C/350F/Gas 4 for 10-15 minutes.

For the milk chocolate mousse, you'll need:


  • Bring the whipping cream to the boil.
  • Cool to 80 degrees C and then pour over the milk chocolate chips.
  • Mix well to form a smooth ganache.


Once the cakes have cooled completely, using a star nozzle, pipe a swirl of chocolate mousse on top of the cakes and decorate with a dark chocolate pencil.

Embellish with flavoured chocolate curls (blossoms) e.g orange or caramel, and dust with icing sugar.
