Let us eat cake!
I think I may actually love Cake more than other food. When I was pregnant with my son, I actually started a weekly cake club with 3 separate groups of friends just so I could eat cake most of the week. I do not recommend this, not the sort of cake we were eating anyway. It was laden with dairy, refined sugar and gluten and I put on 3 stone during my pregnancy!
Since discovering I can still ‘Have my Cake and Eat It’, I have spent a lot of time searching for recipes that can satisfy my cake craving. What I found is that many recipes are expensive to make and complicated to bake. So, after many attempts, I have finally come up with a recipe that I feel is simple, not too costly and can make even the most ‘anti-healthy anything’ friend salivate and ask for more. Most of my baking I do at night – The house is calmer, I find it therapeutic and the next day I have a freshly made cake of sorts to offer, take, eat anywhere. Failing that, I can cut into portions and freeze and take out for when I fancy something sweet.
As always, you can adapt the recipe to suit your tastes. I also love to sometimes add Orange Zest or a shot of organic Espresso to the mix.
