- The egg and the Everything But The Cow drink are fabulous sources of protein and minerals to keep muscles healthy.
- The fat used in this cake is sunflower or rapeseed oil, both high in heart-healthy, unsaturated fats and vitamin E to boost the immune system.

Prep - 5 mins, plus 15 minutes to soak dried mango Cook - 40 mins
- 100g dried mango
- 1 large, free-range egg
- 1 small ripe mango, peeled stoned and mashed with a fork
- 1 small ripe banana, mashed with a fork
- 30ml sunflower or rapeseed oil
- 150ml Everything But the Cow Mango & Orange
- 250g wholemeal spelt flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 100g soft brown sugar
- A little oil to grease the cake tin plus a tsp flour Topping:
- 20g sunflower seeds, chopped
- 1 dessertspoon Demerara sugar
- Preheat the oven to 180 °C/ gas mark 4.
- Place the dried mango in a small bowl and pour over boiling water until the mango is just covered. Leave to soak for 15 minutes. Drain in a colander and press to squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Chop into small pieces, saving three larger pieces to decorate the top of the cake with.
- Meanwhile, grease a 1 litre loaf tin with a drop of oil and sprinkle with a teaspoon of flour. Shake the cake tin around to help the flour coat the sides of the tin. This stops the cake sticking to the tin.
- Break the egg into a bowl and beat with a fork. Add the mango puree, banana and the oil. and beat again with a fork until well combined. Stir in the ‘Mango & Orange’ Everything But the Cow Soy Protein Drink.
- In another bowl, add the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar and mix together. Pour this into the egg/mango mixture and stir very briefly until just combined.
- Gently stir in the dried mango pieces.
- Pour into the cake tin and then arrange the reserved mango slices on top and sprinkle with the sunflower seeds and a dessertspoon Demerara sugar.
- Bake in the oven for around 40 minutes, until well-risen, golden brown on top and cooked through.
- When the cake is cooked (check that a knife stuck into the centre comes out clean), remove from the oven. Leave to cool in the tin for about 15 minutes and then turn out into a wire rack. Eat while still warm, or on the same day if possible.
