'Anything you wish for' Cake


It still holiday,
so no screen printing for me.
After treating myself to Origami,
now a little something for the oven.




This is a basic recipe,
for anything you wish to have in a cake.

1 medium courgette (grated and left for a night to loose some liquid)
or
2 mashed bananas

add anything you like,

today I added:
Almonds,
soaked apricots and figs in little pieces.
Dried bananas and almonds on top.

100 g softened butter
150 g soft brown sugar
(I use way less or a spoonful honey/agave/maple syrup, if adding bananas or dried fruits)
2 eggs
200 g flour (I used Kamut flour today)
3 teaspoons of baking powder




Beat butter and sugar light and fluffy
Add eggs
Beat really hard.
Add flour and baking powder
Mix
Add your courgettes or banana mixture.

Put in a greased loaftin bake 40- 50 minutes at 180 degrees.

not only healthy, but also very interesting (I basically LOVE the author of the blog, she writes wonderfully and makes you want to cook and bake all day long.)
