Winter warming spiced cake
Cold! Yes, winter is definitely approaching! SIX degrees centigrade this week (43f) after a balmy average of 16c (61f) over the half term holidays. So we need something warm and yummy whilst we curl up on the sofa with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book! 😀
This is one of those recipes that I’d bookmarked from another blogger and put in my ‘to make’ list… about 6 months ago! 😛 So I was having an inbox clear out and there was this ‘date cake’ staring at me! How could I resist such a delicious cake when the weather is perfect and I have all the ingredients! Tammy from Mrs Twinkle has the most gorgeous photos and this date cake post has lovely hand-painted work which might give you some (can I say it so early) Christmas ideas! 😀
Oh and the cake, only a couple of tweaks as it was perfect already… it’s moist and spongy, lightly spiced, and you
can can’t stop at one slice!!! 😀
Ooo and now it’s November which means World Vegan Month! 🙂 Did you know that you can improve your health, help save the environment, improve sustainability and help the suffering of animals just by eating a plant based diet!? Why not check out the benefits yourself and take the Vegan Pledge for 30 days?
The following information is taken from the PETA website of which I have no affiliation with other than for my own personal benefit.
Make a difference for animals this November by going vegan for 30 days.
Saving the environment, improving your own health, and preventing animal suffering – there are so many reasons to go vegan:
- Environment: animal agriculture is the source of 51 per cent of all greenhouse gases and 91 per cent of Amazon rainforest destruction, and it’s the number one cause of species destruction and ocean dead zones.
- Health: eating animal-derived foods can clog your arteries with cholesterol and increase your risk of suffering from obesity, cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
- Animals: a vegan lifestyle is the most effective way to protect animals. You can save lives every single time you eat.
At least have a think about it and be conscious about your actions! If you’re stuck for ideas why not try these tacos or a delicious curry, maybe some pie or fritters? All of the recipes on Life Diet Health are suitable for a plant based diet and have been taste tested by lots of happy friends and family! 🙂
