SOME OF THE BEST HEALTHY CAKE RECIPES FILLED WITH VEGETABLES…

Not all cakes need to be fattening. Shape website has a list of seven healthy cake recipes. From Cherry Coconut Cauliflower Ice Cream Cake which sounds amazing to Kale and Apple Cake with Apple Frosting.

Shape say that as a superfood favorite, kale is everywhere, and now it’s even made its way into a cake. “Kale has a slightly bitter taste, so if you use it in dessert, you may need an extra tablespoon of honey or agave to even out the flavor,” says Rizzo. “But it’s huge in the nutrition department, with tons of vitamin C, A, and K, and antioxidants.” Plus, here’s a tip: If you’re struggling to break down that tough, fibrous kale, use a bit of applesauce to help with the puréeing process.

One of my favourites is the Pumpkin Orange Mini Cakes with Powdered Sugar. This pumpkin cake blends pumpkin purée with cinnamon and vanilla, plus citrus from navel orange zest. It’s the perfect balance of sweet and savory, and a little bit of sugar on top helps finish it off.

Being a true chocaholic I cannot resist the Chocolate Beet Cake with Beet Cream Cheese Frosting

Woman & Home have some delicious Healthy Cakes recipes and my favourite from their list is a gluten free and sugar free carrot and coconut cake from Eric Lanlard uses stevia, instead of sugar and rice flour, instead or regular wheat flour.

My next choice from their list of 16 Healthy Cake recipes is one I want to try soon which sounds delicious, Almond, polenta and honey cake.

GH say “Polenta is a really great way to add texture, bulk and depth to flour-free bakes. It’s low GI so provides slow-release energy without the white carb crash, and also boasts more protein than a large egg!”
