Carrot Cake – Vegan & Free-From!
WOW! 😛 😀
If my life got any busier… actually I’m not sure what would happen! BUT, thankfully I had a couple of things cancelled this week otherwise I’d probably be writing this from the sofa instead of the desk! What an exciting week though! My best friend bought her first EVER car! 😀 (so pleased for her)! I got a big new kitchen gadget which albeit very noisy has been put to good use already! 🙂 Hopefully something exciting will become of that!!! 😀 Some friends came back from Saudi (back as in they’d been living there not visiting) and are coming for dinner today – have a look at
my our, lovely gifts which hubby collected from them at the weekend…
The garden has gone crazy with all the rain and radishes are poking out of the netting, the strawberries have suddenly multiplied (& some) and are quickly turning from creamy white to pink-red, peas are beginning to fill their pods, blueberries and gooseberries are starting to creep up the branches, even carrot tops are poking through the soil! Oh, and the rhubarb! well, the leaves have got so big that my son thinks they should be in the Guinness Book of Records!
AND… and, and, and… I got to speak (as a speaker)! at a monthly Fibromyalgia meeting. Guess the topic 🙂 No, not food! Well, not specifically! 😛 I’ll let you think on that but it went really well 😀 I think several people learnt something new so that was great! 😀 😀 😀
Anyway, the reason you’re probably here! Vegan and Gluten free Carrot Cake! Pinch me and tell me it’s not real? It’s soft, crumbly, moist, sweet (naturally) and deliciously spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon and mixed spice! It’s also topped with a finger licking creamy hint of citrus topping. Oh yes! This is the carrot cake! 😀 Why is mine in miniature? Well, this was a special test and this was number three. Most things start in small batches in the Life Diet Health kitchen then when they work, they get bigger! This one will get made full size but now I’ve perfected the recipe, somebody else is going to be doing the baking! 😀 How exciting is that!!! I’m getting cake made… for me!!! 😀 😛 Oh and that’s for my real birthday 😀 😀 😀
