CAKE!!! Free-From & good for you!!!
Hello everyone! 🙂 I hope this week has gone smoothly so far if you’ve had children go back to school, start school, start college or get ready for university? Also to all the teachers out there who have new classes (& new schools!) – I hope it’s going great and you’re all enjoying it so far! 🙂
This week we’ve been munching on the cucumbers from the garden which sprung up whilst we were away, as well as the delicious cherry tomatoes that are bursting with sweet juice and so much taste. If you’ve never tasted home-grown raspberries and have space to grow something, I would highly recommend them. EVERY morning the canes are laden with maroon coloured berries which just melt in your mouth with a pop of flavour. Wow! they’re organic of course and just taste divine.
So this week, as it’s still warm in the UK (read that as very close & muggy), there’s not been too much cooking – but
cake healthy cake can be eaten for breakfast instead of toast; for lunch because it’s easily portable; for dinner as you’ve had a busy day and it’s there! 😛 and as a snack because it’s nutritious and a great way to fill a gap! So… cake it is! 😀
Okay, so this is not a dairy laden – butter padded cake with loads of refined sugar and processed flour – it is of course a dairy free, gluten free, refined sugar free cake which is full of goodness! 🙂 🙂 🙂 This is not a light fluffy cake and this time I haven’t included baking powder (you can try adding one teaspoon if you like), this is a more dense flavourful cake. The great thing about this cake though is it’s adaptability! You can eat it as a bread – maybe slice and spread with almond butter or chocolate spread? Make a delicious frosting and serve to guests (although my friend & I sat and munched then plain with our coffee & tea)! Mix it up and add some different ingredients – try adding a spoon of cacao and some chopped hazelnuts or how about adding diced apple, raisins and cinnamon…your choice once you have the base.
