Beat the Menopause Cake

Method

  • Put all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add the soy milk and malt extract, mix well and leave to soak for about 30 minutes. Heat oven to 190 degrees or gas mark 5. Line a small loaf pan with waxed paper. If the mixture ends up too stiff-it should have a soft dropping consistency, just too thick to pour-stir in some more soy milk. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 1 1/2 hours. Test with a skewer and if it is not cooked through, allow five to ten more minutes. Turn out on a wire rack. Eat in thick slices with soy spread. One slice contains the RDA of phytoestrogens. Recipe adapted from A Spoonful of Hope Cookbook
