This week I tried out a recipe from one of my favourite bloggers Madeleine Shaw. If you’ve not heard of her (where have you been?) definitely check out her blog here: http://madeleineshaw.com/
She does amazingly healthy but equally delicious recipes and encourages a diet free from refined sugar. My sister had recently bought her book Get The Glow, and when I was up in Aberdeen last weekend visiting biff I had a little flick through and this recipe caught my eye.
Now in my opinion this is a nice cake but by no means a ‘showstopper’. It’s a lovely, light cake that is great served with coffee in the afternoon of even after a heavier dinner. She serves it with her coconut whipped cream (which you don’t need a lot of) but if you’re not vegan I think it would be equally tasty with some greek yoghurt and honey.
The very easy recipe has been published online so take a look here:
Note that I used coconut oil instead of butter, and honey instead of coconut sugar as per her suggestions.
I’m really looking forward to adapting this recipe. I think it would be delicious with fresh lemon zest, lemon peel and raspberries!
Looking forward to having another slice this afternoon!
