Low-fat orange-apricot cake


12 slices

  • 125ml orange juice
  • 140g dried apricots
  • 250g self-rising flour
  • 180ml skimmed milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 175g liquid honey
  • 30g margarine

Preparation method:

Preheat the oven at 180°C and grease a cake tin.

Mix the apricots with the orange juice and cook it until it’s completely warmed. Then take it off the fire and let it cool down.

Mix the honey, margarine, milk and egg in a bowl and stir well.

Put the flour in a large bowl and make a hole in the middle. Pour the milk-mix and apricot-mix in the hole. Now stir everything until you get a homogeneous mix.

Put the mix in the cake tin and place it in the oven for an hour or until you can puncture the center of the cake with a skewer without the cake sticking to it.

Remove it from the oven and let it cool down.


A piece of this cake is a healthy snack for athletes. It contains few fats and a lot of sugars from natural products (honey and fruit). Athletes really need these sugars, because they contain the required energy to complete training sessions.
