Cake for breakfast, lunch and dinner

29 January 2011 § 3 Comments

The Ladies™ were four this week, it amazes me how they have grown into such strong, healthy little girls. With all the celebrations it seems like my week has been one big cake fest. I made chocolate and prune cupcakes for their school birthday treat, I wanted a healthy (ish) cupcake that would be delicious and moist without frosting. I found this old post on Lucullian delights and made these, no photos as they were eaten far too quickly. I tripled the ingredients and got about 24 decent sized, perfect cupcakes. I then basked in the warm glow of praise from a class of four year olds. With every single cupcake eaten in its entirety, the proof was definitely in the pudding.

With all the birthday celebrations my veggie box from the Purple Dragon food share has been neglected So I made this easy apple cake to use up some of abundance of apples. It is a heavy cake, dense with nuts and chopped apples, a robust cake perfect with strong, black coffee. We had it for breakfast on The Ladies™ birthday and that caused much excitement as they know that any day that starts with cake is bound to be a good one.
