Another Cake recipe For You!

Hello, from a happy blogger I managed to revert my blog back to the old way so I can now blog without any trouble thank god!!!!!!! I had way to many photos though so I have slimmed them down to yesterdays, todays and a collage of the rest oh and another cake recipe is coming your way enjoy!

As you can see the end of my week was filled with lots of colourful yummy foods : )

Sunday

Sunday was pretty lazy, Dale came Saturday night so we had a nice lay in on Sunday which was lovely. I asked Dale what he wanted for breakfast and one word came out of his mouth 'cake'!

As it was Sunday I decided to indulge with him so breakfast was a big slice of my Coconut, choc chip and courgette cake delicious!

We spent the morning watching Prison Break in bed and chilling with a yummy coffee and maybe a little more cake!

Lunch time came and I decided a light lunch was in order so I fed my current cottage cheese addiction by dumping loads on top of 2 chopped apples and some strawberries. I topped with cinnamon and almonds, perfect!

I also made us some iced almond latte's to accompany some more Prison Break action!

I went to the 6pm Bikram class and Dale drove home to Hastings.

I had a fab class and when I came out I was faced with the most amazing sky : )

Monday

This morning I got up and had a juice before heading to the 7am Bikram class, session 52!

When I got home I made a blueberry and cherry smoothie topped with muesli

After a trip to the docs and an Asda run I came home to get out of the horrid rain and decided to bake another cake! I'm getting good at these loafs but my thighs might not thank me for it!

Coconut, Carrot and Date Loaf

Ingredients:

1+3/4 cup spelt flour
1tsp baking soda
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1/2 cup dates
1tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/3 cup walnut oil
3/4 cup golden syrup
2 eggs
2 medium sized carrots

Same method as before. Mix dry ingredients and in another bowl mix wet ingredients. Grate carrot and add to dry then add wet ingredients. Stir and fill a parchment lined loaf tin with mixture. I sprinkled with seeds to give a crunchy top. Bake on low heat Gas mark 4 for 55 minutes. Let the cake cool and enjoy!

Obviously the cake must be tried to make sure it is edible!

Wow this made a rainy day so much better! I made it so I could take it with me to Hastings tomorrow to palm it off on Dale and his dad for a yummy work treat. I'm pretty sure they will like it too!

For dinner I had a big bowl of green goodness! This included asparagus, purple sprouting broccoli, broad beans, mashed sardines and some sundried tomato sauce. It was really yummy and really filling!


My Monday has been pretty chilled what with the rain I decided to just stay in the house and not get wet which suited me fine! I am off to Hastings tomorrow afternoon to train clients and then stay at Dales. So I can't wait, I do wish we lived in the same town it would be so much easier! Sigh oh well such is life : )

Right more Heroes for me see ya tomorrow x x

Question:

What is your favourite cake to make?

I've never been that great at baking but I am loving these loaves that I have been baking. They are so easy to make and only take 10 minutes or so which is fab, I would usually use agave syrup but the golden was on offer so I thought what the heck!

  2. That sky photo is amazing. :)
    The loaf cake sounds lovely too- I love loaf cakes as they seem easier than normal cakes, but the easiest of all is brownies as you melt stuff in a pan, add the rest, pour into a tin and bake. Only the pan to wash up :)

  3. That cake looks lovely! I love my banana coconut choc chip bread, its pretty easy to make and tastes amazing plus its a bit more forgiving than when making proper cakes!
