vegetable cake

Still working on making alternatives for commercial bread, and was a little fed up with all my semi-sweet cupcake like bakings, so this time I am trying to make a more savory vegetable bread.

1 cup grated carrots
1 cup grated zucchini
1 cup grated celery
1 egg
1 cup oats
1 cup polenta-flour (cornflour)
tsp salt
tsp baking soda
tsp allspice
tsp cumin
1/2 cup grated cheese

mix everything together and pour in a cake mold, mixture has the consistency of hummus, so quite wet. add some more grated cheese to the top and bake for 20 minutes (180 degrees C) in the oven.
