Happy Mother's Day!
Yes I know it's not food...
Mother's day cake! I am a rule breaker when it comes to recipes because I have a tendency to follow my tuition when it comes to baking. So here we go!
1 1/2 cups of spelt flour
1 cup of cold water or rice milk
3 tsp of baking soda
ener-g egg replacer or ground flax
(2 tsp of either to 3 tbsp of warm water mixed)
1/4 cup of agave or maple syrup
1/4 cup of maple sugar or add 1/4 cup more maple syrup with a tbsp more flour
1 tsp of vanilla
1/4 tsp of stevia
1 cup of blueberries
Mix flour, baking soda, and stevia in a food processor so as to evenly and thoroughly mix everything. This is very important if you want your cake to rise up!
Empty dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Fold in blueberries. Mix all wet ingredients togerher. Slowly pour into dry ingredients while stirring. mix batter with a cake mixer or stir consistently with a spoon for 5 minutes.
preheat oven to 350 degrees.
empty contents into an oiled cake pan and bake in oven for 25-30 minutes.
Stick a knike or fork in it. Comes out empty? Set it aside to cool for 10 minutes.
Small box of mori-nu silken tofu, 1/4 of agave, 1 tsp of lemon juice, tsp of vanilla, 1 tsp of ginger. Blend in food processor. Smooth over cake. Voila!
Lola and Jonathan devoured it, Ife spit it out and asked for ice cream instead. We have come to the conclusion that Ife is not fond of cakes. He's had a similar reaction to his grandpa's birthday cake.
