    Healthy er cakes

    Healthy er cakes-cake.jpg

    A quick snap of my cupcakes made last night. The sponge is made with either courgette or butternut squash with rice flour instead of wheat. The icing is 'traditional', butter, mascarpone and sugar.

    I was surprised how good they are.

    Next is a chocolate cake made with beetroot.

    Ooh, recipe?

    We're very into this malkarkey with the littly - we like to know exactly what she's eating, and see if we can make "healthy" nicer to look at as well. I want to look at healthier homemade crisps too.

    Good god, what happened to the tech who lived on junk and was pleased about it?!? Parenthood, how strange...hah!

    Having lost 3 stone since this time last year after a longish illness. I have looked at my diet and realised how bad wheat makes me feel. I had a look at Wheat Belly Wheat Belly | Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight and how wheat has been modified out of all recognition. This led me to Harry Eastwood's cookbook Red Velvet Chocolate Heartache: The ultimate feel-good book of natural cakes that taste naughty: Amazon.co.uk: Harry Eastwood: Books.

    But seriously, I'm thinking about it. I'm definitely in need of a career/manager change. As you are just down the road...

    It's surprising how nice they are, really moist too. My ultimate test will be dropping some into the grandkids later.

    There are also recipes for potato, sweet potato and aubergine.

    Not sure that mascarpone, sugar and butter counts as healthy, actually!

    Sirbendy - the microwave crisp makers work quite well. They sell them on amazon.

    Phew... lucky I put healthy er (Healthier) in the title. Trade description and all that...

    I'll take butter and soft cheese and even sugar over wheat. Especially when you consider the amount of veg in the sponge as opposed to the amount of icing.

    Is dairy unhealthy? Is any food unhealthy in moderation?
