Spinach Cake (Ispanakli Kek)

2 eggs
1 ½ cup sugar
2 cups flour
½ cup canola oil
½ or 1 cup spinach, pureed
1 package/1 tsp baking powder
1 package/1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp lemon juice (optional)
250-300 gr whipped cream

Puree spinach in a food processor and put aside. In a wide bowl, mix sugar and eggs with a mixer till it gets foamy. Add lemon juice, canola oil and spinach. Then, add baking powder, vanilla and flour. Mix for 3-4 minutes till obtaining a smooth mixture. Then pour it into greased Pyrex (~3L).
Bake in a preheated 375 F (190C) oven for about 30-40 minutes. Check if it’s done inserting a toothpick into the cake. It is done, if it comes out clean.
Let it cool down and then take out of the Pyrex. Cut off the sides off about ½ inch wide and powder them in the food processor. Set aside. Place the cake over a serving plate; spread whipped cream on top evenly. Then, sift the powdered cake on top of the cream. Slice it up and serve.

Sarah,
You'll see that spinach is just for coloring, you do not taste any spinach flavor in this cake.
Just give a try, I hope you'll like it.
Good luck,
Hayriye
