Honey and Applesauce Spelt Cake, whole grain deliciousness!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

As part of my ongoing quest to eat healthily, I am experimenting with sugar-free desserts. This cake is just the ticket! Quite perfect just the way it is, it will also be a wonderful master recipe that will lead to may more cakes. Having a master recipe is my long term favorite way to cook. After all, why reinvent the wheel every time you step into the kitchen? 

This master recipe starts out with very basic ingredients, which means if your pantry is stocked, you can whip this up at a moment's notice. It is also what I like to refer to as a wooden spoon recipe because you do not need any electric appliances, just the ingredients, a large bowl, and a wooden spoon. 

This Honey Applesauce Spelt Cake is fine just the way it is, but by now you have noticed, that a bit of cream on the side, is my favorite way to enjoy my desserts! This one, however, would be lovely with a spoon of vanilla yogurt and a drizzle of honey, we opted for whipped cream....plain this will also make a great snack with a glass of milk or a steaming cup of tea or coffee.

    1. Thank you, fortunately it is also a great "keeper" staying moist until eaten. Which makes it perfect for smaller families too!

    1. Thanks, it is wonderful plain with a cup of coffee or tea in the afternoon. Sometimes dessert after dinner is simply too much food...
