Ingredients

    1⁄3 cup + 2 Tbsp (115 mL) unsalted butter, divided

    ¾ cup (175 mL) granulated sugar

    2 large eggs

    1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla

    ½ cup (125 mL) all-purpose flour

    ½ cup (125 mL) whole wheat flour

    1 tsp (5 mL) baking soda

    2 tsp (10 mL) cinnamon

    1 tsp (5 mL) ground ginger

    1 tsp (5 mL) nutmeg

    ½ tsp (2 mL) sea salt

    2 cups (500 mL) small chopped apples

    ½ cup (125 mL) lentil purée


Directions

  1. PREHEAT oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 9-inch (22 cm) cast iron skillet or square baking dish with 2 Tbsp (30 mL) butter.
  2. IN the bowl of a stand mixer, cream remaining butter and sugar on high speed until light, about 2 minutes, scraping down sides a few times. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat on high for 2 minutes until fluffy, scraping down sides a few times. In a separate bowl, combine flours, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Mix well. Using a rubber spatula, fold flour mixture into butter mixture, then stir in apples and lentil puree until smooth.
  3. SCRAPE this into prepared pan, smoothing the top. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out with just a few crumbs clinging.
  4. SERVE warm, with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
