Red Cabbage Sponge Cake

Soft and moist red cabbage sponge cake! Take your classic sponge cake to the next level!

You probably have tried many different flavour of sponge cakes like vanilla, chocolate, orange, strawberry, carrot, lemon etc but have you ever try red cabbage sponge cake? Red cabbage is very high in vitamin C and rich in antioxidant. The common way of consume cabbage is either use it in salad, slow cook or stir fry pairing with savoury dish.

It might sound unusual to you by adding cabbage in a dessert recipe. But seriously this vegetable cake is so healthy and nutritious. It is definitely the best idea to incorporate this secret ingredient in a recipe and feed the picky eater in your household 😉

This cabbage sponge cake has a good texture and moisture, light and soft but not overly sweet. It is also very pretty with light creamy purple in colour. This recipe is very simple to make and I start with using a smaller ring pan which is 22cm*9cm in size to see how’s the result turns out. I wasn’t disappointed, pretty happy with the outcomes!
