Fast Food with a difference! It’s fast & it’s cake-y!!!
So, I’m sitting in my kitchen thinking I need more ‘rest’ time after my very busy week last week! Rest = tea & biscuits (cookies) or coffee & cake right? Of course it does! 😀 I have tea – green tea, mint tea, earl grey tea, English Breakfast tea, flower tea (as in it blossoms in the cup), pomegranate tea and a few others and I have coffee, but as I only tend to eat unprocessed natural foods, I only generally have cookies and cake if I’ve been baking! Well, I had been baking actually! I made two tone cupcakes inspired by Arlene at Arl’s World using fresh strawberries as a natural food colouring! Anyway, although I made them dairy free, they weren’t gluten free or egg free either, so none for me. BUT I NEED CAKE!!!
As what usually happens, I opened the pantry and pulled out one of my favourite ingredients – oats! Don’t you just love the versatility of oats! Not just for porridge or muesli, oats are for breads, cookies and CAKES too! 😀 Delicious. Oh, but I was having a rest day – so no baking! 😦 Except, what if I made something so simple that it couldn’t really be called baking! 😛 I’ve made something similar lots of times, but I thought this time I’d measure the ingredients so I could make them again without having to think. Am I glad I did! These were perfect! Only THREE ingredients and a pinch of spice if you like, ready for the oven in less than 5 minutes! They’re moorish (I’m just about to make batch two!), squishy, cake-y and full of flavour! You could even add some extras in, or add some toppings! You do realise that instead of reading this you could have already had a batch in the oven!!! 😛 😀
