My day has been super busy so far and it's continuing that way this afternoon. I have had a client rearrange though which has given me a couple of hours to get some bits done, like say hello to you guys : )
It also gave me chance to make a delicious cake but you'll have to read on to get the recipe....
A little rewind to yesterday before we move on to cake! I had a tasty lunch of sautéed veggies, and eggs with feta, great mix of flavours
Then last night I enjoyed a bowl of homemade soup, I made this in the afternoon and it was perfect for a cold evening. Butternut squash, sweet potato and chilli hmmmm can't wait to have it again tonight after yoga!
This morning I was up early as always to train some clients then I got a little upper body strength workout in for myself.
Post workout I had a bowl of chopped apple topped with cottage cheese, almonds and cinnamon before my next clients turned up. Then I got my bake on!
Hmmmmmm oh this is a rather scrumptious cake if I do say so my self, its not completely clean but it is worth every calorie!
125g gluten free white self raising flour
100g coconut oil/softened
125g coconom's ginger coconut sugar
3Tbsp lemon juice
1Tbsp poppy seeds
Pre-heat oven on a medium heat.
Put all ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix until completely blended.
Parchment line or grease a loaf tin then pour batter in.
Bake on a medium heat for 40-45 minutes.
Using a skewer check the cake is cooked through, push into loaf and if it comes out clem your cake is baked!
Leave to cool on a wire rack then enjoy with a cuppa : )
This cake doesn't really rise very high but it is soft, sweet and I love the colour this cake is due to the coconut sugar. Perfect for the Autumn weather we are having and it is filled with healthy goodness even if it is a treat!
If your local health food store still doesn't stock Coconom's organic coconut sugar you need to have a word, I am bias because I do a little work for them maybe but it really is the best coconut sugar on the market. Plus the flavours just give a recipe that extra kick of deliciousness!
If you work in a health food store or would like your local one to stock Coconom I can send them some info so feel free to contact me at:
Or if your store does stock us then get down there get some ginger coconut sugar and make this loaf!
Have a wonderful Thursday peeps : )
What is your favourite flavour of cake?
Lemon wins for me every time
