Who doesn’t love cake? Well I for one do and when I bake it myself, the sense of accomplishment seems to allow me to eat it without any sense of guilt. And so I should! Cake is there to be enjoyed in small quantities and occasionally. I’m not for giving up the cake!

This one is vegan, so made with Almond Milk, Coconut oil + sugar, lemons and the usual flour, baking powder etc.

I can’t wait to see your pictures of this one!
