If you have followed my blog you know about my all-wholemeal-Spelt-sugar-free cakes. This is a recipe I found in a magazine which I have “translated” to my ingredients (a friends taught me flexibility when following new recipes) my family absolutely loved it and actually preferred it to the too sweet honey cake. It is so easy to do you only have to stir for 2 mn by hand.
Let me know 🙂

Method

Put it all in a bowl, stir then pour in baking pan. If you want two cakes as I’ve done just double the recipe.

Enjoy the compliments you’ll get for not much effort 😉

Our chickpeas experience

From cotton to earth
From small to tall
You got there first
Quicker than them all

This experience came out by accident. We soaked chick peas a bit too long and some of them started to sprout. So we just put them on soaked cotton wool to let them continue their process which turned out into a full swing project!
