Oh, come on– we all do it! And I didn’t eat yo ordinary cake, this was healthy cake!
Another creation, not from me this time, but my mother. Her kitchen outcomes have varied outcomes (on the count that she never measures her “recipes” and changes any recipe she wants to make!), but this cake was FANTASTIC. Though mom thought her cake was so-so, Lil’ Sister and I were already gobbling down a second slice!
True to my mom’s and I food restrictions, and our beliefs about food, the cake was whole-grain gluten-free, vegan, low-fat (ground flax seeds was the only fat), stevia/agave sweetened (only a bit of agave in the cake, she told me), and it even had some sneaky veggies! Her zucchini cake even had frosting! It was a tofu lemon agave-sweetened frosting– meant to be like a cream cheese topping (The cake was still my favorite part). And when the cake had been in the refrigerator all night, the frosting thickened and was like cream cheese. It was so cool!
When this morning came, I was halfway through making breakfast when I opened the fridge for a pear, and saw the cake! I ditched my dry oats, obviously– but like I said, this is HEALTHY CAKE PEOPLE. Good stuff– does a body good. 🙂
Now, if only I could convince my mom to measure and write down her recipes, then I could make this for breakfast every morning! Just kidding– it wouldn’t be the same if mommy wasn’t spontaneous with her cooking. Love ya, mom!
Today’s question: Does your family have dessert? If so, how often?
Me: The above incident was a rather rare, we don’t often have dessert! However, that makes it extra special if we do. Of course we have the traditional deserts on holidays (pies at Thanksgiving, cookies at Christmas, etc.), but desserts usually present themselves on ordinary every-day days– when someone just feels like whipping up somethin’ good :).
