Yes Barbara, all calorie free, even this one.
Coconut & Raspberry Cake with White Chocolate Icing
Juicy raspberries, sweet coconut and white chocolate... we can't think of a better combination! The cake itself is fluffy, moist and very easy to make :)
A selection of fresh raspberries, coconut flakes, freeze-dried raspberries, dusting of icing sugar
This recipe was put up on the 20-something of May and I am still waiting for a slice in the post! 😋
Mike, if you look at the date above the post, it was posted 10th June. I've sent you a slice by email. 🤣
Found it! My email system identified it as food and put it in my spam folder! 😹😹
Oh that was brilliant both of you made me laugh @Mike1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
...spam folder indeed....😹
Flourless Honey-Almond Cake
180g (6oz) whole almonds, toasted
4 large eggs, at room temperature, separated
120ml (4.22fl oz) honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons honey
30g (1oz) almonds, toasted
Preheat oven to 180°C. Coat a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray. Line the bottom with parchment paper and spray the paper.
Process whole almonds in a food processor or blender until finely ground. Beat 4 egg yolks, 120ml honey, vanilla, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer (or use a paddle attachment on a stand mixer) on medium speed until well combined. Add the ground almonds and beat on low until combined.
Beat 4 egg whites in another large bowl with the electric mixer (use clean beaters on a hand-held mixer or the whisk attachment on a stand mixer) on medium speed until very foamy, white and doubled in volume, but not stiff enough to hold peaks, 1 to 2 minutes (depending on the type of mixer). Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the nut mixture until just combined. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake the cake until golden brown and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean, about 28 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the pan and gently remove the side ring. Let cool completely.
If desired, remove the cake from the pan bottom by gently sliding a large, wide spatula between the cake and the parchment paper. Carefully transfer the cake to a serving platter. To serve, drizzle the top of the cake with honey and sprinkle with sliced almonds.
Thanks Kath I'll take a slice for Paul and one each for my daughter and her GF they are visiting later.
tea to go with..
ENJOY MY LOVELIES. XXXX 🥂
I am still practising making vegan cake....slightly happy so far.....🍰
Now, I know there are some serious cooks that post on this forum so please don't laugh BUT the last time I put on a couple of boiled eggs .................................. I burnt them! What happened was that I went to sit down intending to back into the kitchen after a few minutes as my OA was particularly killing me, anyway I managed to nod off and when I woke up there was a horrible smell coming from the kitchen! To counter that I bought a new bit of kit yesterday:
It allows you to boil one egg at a time and also does poached eggs, the good news is that it turns itself off when they are done and you have the option of doing anywhere between one and six eggs to either soft, medium or hard. Anyway I had two poached eggs in the machine this morning and it worked well. I'll give boiled eggs and soldiers a go tomorrow safe in the knowledge that I will not be burning them anymore. 😁
Thanks Mike, I want one, how much do they cost?
Years ago when at school, I put some eggs on to boil as part of a cookery exam. Walked away to get on with other tasks. Three quarters of an hour later there was a huge BANG!!!! Saucepan flew one way, eggs splattered up the back of the (old fashioned) cooker. The teacher grabbed the examiner and shoved her in the pantry. My classmates all looked shocked while I stood rolling around laughing. Result - I failed cookery practical! 🙄
Hi Kathleen, I paid about £14 for mine on Amazon but there are several different ones that do the same thing and also several different places to get one. There is one that also does omelettes as well as boiled and poached eggs but I have been told that type are not as good.
Wow that looks great Mike! Foolproof eggs and a safety feature too.
Worth £14 for definite.
Oh Kath....I hope your cooking skills have improved since then? 🤣
Boiled eggs and soldiers this morning, eggcellent! 👍️
Sounds perfect 👌 Mike🙂
I bought one for my baby sister too. She has been having problems with her eggs coming out with hard yolks instead of runny like mine, then we solved the problem - I buy large eggs, she buys medium! So now she puts slightly less water in the measuring cup that controls the cooking which works a treat.
Double Chocolate Brownies
These brownies are absolutely delicious - rich, chewy and amazingly chocolatey. Enjoy them cold or warm them up and serve with vegan ice cream for a luxurious dessert. They are ideal for keeping in the freezer and defrosting for use as and when.
Serving suggestion: vegan ice cream, cream or custard
Oh yes please @kathleenT
Better watch out @Mike1 might beat me to it - is there plenty?
You are OK, I am not a fan of chocolate cakes or brownies!
