Good morning peeps!

I have a new cake for you-  its a snacking cake.  Whats a snacking cake?? A snacking cake is slightly more sturdy than a regular cake - it holds together well, but still has a light crumb.  Its a touch less sweet than regular cake and so its perrrrfect for breakfast.  Serve it with fresh berries… or if you want, you can use it to soak up your non dairy latte. yum. 

This cake is the result of my attempts to work on a new cupcake recipe-  um…which I need to have ready by tomorrow for my girl B’s birthday.  *cough*  no sweat. I swear. (eep).

    Hi Diana, i bet this cake would work well if you added mandarins to it- (keep the banana in too), – the coconut flour is quite absorbant so it will make sure that it won’t get gummy. You could try chopping a few up, and adding in finely grated zest for more “oomph”. In case you’re feeling experimental, you can substitute mandarines for my lemon flavours in this loaf:

    Or also, in these vanilla cupcakes:

    Happy baking! :)
    alea

    My mom used to make “snacking cakes” when we were kids! Great for after school. ;) This one looks terrific. And glad to hear that you are feeling better. . . that is quite an amazing reaction to the tryptophan! Glad it helps. :)
