Every Wednesday I will be posting recipes of things I have tried / tampered with or totally stuffed up on the food front. It’s all about trial and error and I love getting adventurous in the kitchen.
Follow me on instagram @cavegirlkitchen for all pictures and videos of my cooking adventures.
Nutmeg and Ginger Fruit cake
This cake was created as another emergency pudding and when we wanted a cake that didn’t just taste like a variation of banana bread. The dates make it sweet so not one to be eating all the time as its higher in sugar (but yummy).
50g Ground almonds
2 tablespoons honey
5ml vanilla essence
Tsp Baking powder
Nutmeg, Ginger and Cinnamon (to taste)
Crack the 3 eggs into the mixture of oats and ground almonds and use a hand blender to combine,
add the honey, vanilla, spices and baking powder. Lastly stir in the chopped dates and spoon into
a baking tin.
Cook on 190 for 30 minutes or until cooked through
