A LITTLE SOMETHING

This is a very simple concept!  I´ll bake a healthy cake a week and gift it to someone in Titirangi.  Additionally I invite others to bake and gift.

Receive a cake

Even though most of us would love to get a random cake delivered, I thought I would prioritise people who are experiencing a big change in their lives, e.g. the arrival of a newborn.

Gift a cake

I can imagine that many people would love a cake, so one cake a week isn´t going to get us far. I am thus inviting other families to participate. If you fancy baking, please join me.

This is a free favour and includes delivery within Titirangi.

Let’s work together and enjoy a caring Titirangi.

RECEIVE A HEALTHY CAKE

Wouldn´t it be brilliant if everyone was gifted a cake when experiencing big changes in life?  For now I am gifting one cake a week, but am inviting more people to participate.  Leave your own or your friend´s details with a little bit about you/them and you might be the lucky one.  I will use my judgement to choose who gets it and if too hard, I´ll  draw it out of a hat.
This is free and will be delivered to your door.

RECIPES

What is a healthy cake?  It is not my goal to answer that question here.  Instead I look for recipes that don´t contain refined sugars and white flour and still taste great.  If you have a good recipe, please do share.

Banana Cake

Really nice one, a favourite.

Ingredients

3 mashed bananas
2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla
1 cup almond flour

Date Balls

Great snacks.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups pitted dates

Directions
Place dates and warm water in a food processor and process until smooth.
Scoop the creamed dates into a bowl and fold in the remaining ingredients, with the exception of ½ cup coconut flakes.  Shape balls and roll them in coconut.
