Delicious cake with grated parsnip, maple syrup and mascarpone filling
Pre-heat your oven to 160C/325F/Gas Mark 3 and line and grease a loose bottomed 22cm cake tin, or two sandwich tins
Melt the butter, light brown sugar and the maple syrup on a low heat. Let it cool slightly
Pour the mixture into the cake tin. Bake the cake for around 1 hour . Make sure it is done in the middle by testing it with a skewer as this is a very big and dense cake. If you use two sandwich tins, you will only need to cook the cake for around 30 minutes
To make the filling whisk mascarpone with maple syrup using an electric whisk. Cut the cake in half and spread it over the middle. Put the other half of the cake on top and finish with a sprinkling of icing sugar.
