Cooking and baking are both physical and mental therapy.

My grandfather usually has some really nice, organic lettuces on his little allotment. On top of this, I’ve always wanted to explore recipes that include a good amount of greens. So, one day I challenged my grandmother, and we baked a lettuce cake that turned out pretty tasty! You will find the ingredients you need and the instructions to prepare it down below.


  • 300g of lettuce
  • 3 eggs
  • 200g of brown sugar
  • 150ml of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of honey
  • 5 crushed walnuts
  • 250g of self-raising flour
  • 100g of corn flour
  • cinnamon

  1. It’s a running joke between me and my bf that I have a huge hatred of lettuce and salad, but THIS is a lettuce recipe I can get behind! I am going to send it to him and might have to make it for his bday coming up 🙂


  2. Ooh this looks absolutely amazing! I never would’ve thought to put lettuce in a cake but I really want to give it a try now. It’s lovely that you made it with your grandmother! Thank you so much for sharing x


  3. What an interesting challenge! How great that you came up with the challenge and grandma was all for it! I would never consider using lettuce in baking. Lettuce is so delicate, I just imagine that it would get stringy or something. I do like grilled lettuce for Caesar salad though. You’ve piqued my curiosity, that’s for sure.
