Cake That! Superfood Bar!
This delicious slice/bar is Gluten,Dairy,Nut and Sugar Free!
It's also vegan and requires minimal effort to make. I'm sure it'd last a long while in a container too- but it never lasts long enough here to test that theory lol
So here it is
Preheat your oven to 165degC
In a mixing bowl place
2 1/2 cups oats (if needed use GF oats)
2tbsp Chia seeds
3tbs Sunflower seeds
2tsp powdered ginger
2tbs flaxseed meal
In a blender- blend
2x over ripe bananas (med size)
200g pitted prunes
200g softened pitted dates (I put them into a bowl with a splash of water and microwave for 60secs)
Add blended mix to oat mix.
Press into a lined slice tray and bake for 30-40 mins
The longer you bake the firmer the slice- I like it a bit chewy :)
Slice when warm- then devour once cold xx
I add other things to this slice and omit others depending on what I have on hand and what I feel like.
As a base I use the oats and the blend mix- from there you can add coconut- nuts- dried fruit- different spices - whatever your heart desires!
You can even swap out prunes for more softened dates if you want.
I normally cut 18 pieces from a tray. They're a great little snack.
Happy baking xx

Or are you only having a cake because you feel you "Have" to have one for traditions sake?

I enjoyed a lovely break- relaxing with my friends and family.
It wasn't no baking for me though! I made some cupcakes and also some iced biscuits for fun.
Looking forward to getting back into cakes tomorrow.

When I was a child I had all sorts of creations from my mum. None of which (respectfully) were "perfect"- but each one 100% made with love.
I appreciate that we live in a time poor society- so I absolutely understand that- to many- outsourcing your little ones cake is just another load off your mind.
I get countless requests for kids cakes- many at the last minute- but sadly like any other order- each is baked from scratch- and needed to be ordered well in advance to secure the date.
Most of the children's cakes I do are for returning clients.
I was lucky enough to make this Christening cake for Baby Dominic last month.
A cute dusty blue cake compete with 3D lettering and a (if I do say so myself!) an adorable hand crafted sugar giraffe!
I loved this little figurine so much! He was just so cute!!
He stood around 15cm tall and was hand modeled and painted by me!
I am blessed to be able to make such beautiful cakes for my clients!
So do you love this cute as Baptism cake?
