Recipe's preparation

  1. Heat oven to 160 degrees for fan forced


    Grease 2 x 20cm sandwich tins and line the bases with baking paper


    Place orange zest in bowl and grate on speed 10 for 10 seconds


    Add peeled parsnip and apple and chop speed 7 for 5 seconds, scrape sides


    Add pecans and chop on speed 4 for 2-3 seconds to roughly chop the nuts (can substitute for walnuts if preferred)


    Remove parsnip mixture and set aside. No need to clean bowl.


    Add butter, sugar and maple syrup and cook for 2 minutes on 100 degrees speed 2


    Add eggs and blend for 5 seconds on speed 5


    Add flour, baking powder, mixed spice, reserved parsnip apple and nut mixture together with the juice of one medium orange and blend on speed 5 for 10 seconds.


    Divide between the 2 pans and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the tops spring back when pressed lightly


    Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before sandwiching.


    To make filling:

    Add mascarpone and maple syrup to bowl, insert butterfly and mix for 5-10 seconds speed 4. You can just do this with a spoon in the container you brought the mascarpone in to save dishes also.


    Pour half the mascarpone mixture over the base and place the second cake on top. Dust with icing sugar just before serving and serve with a dollop of the remaining mascarpone.

  • Yummy.  Good way to use

    Yummy.  Good way to use parsnips. I didn't have an orange so used a lemon instead.  Was worried the lemon might be too strong but not at all.  Next time I will mix the filling with a spoon.  When I took the TM bowl off I noticed a puddle of maple syrup not mixed through so put it back for a few seconds which made the marscapone go a bit solid and hard to spread.
