Vegan Chocolate Cake – Recipe and Giveaway

This vegan chocolate cake recipe is one to keep. I came across the idea when I realised there were many more people that I know who are either vegan or who are removing some areas of food from their diet. There are so many ways in which we can tweak our favourite recipes to meet our own requirements.

With my vegan chocolate cake it does not contain any eggs or butter. The standard sugar has been replaced with Natvia sweetener – Natvia is made from the stevia plant and is completely natural – and the oil is vegetable oil.

This is a cake that is so versatile. Its perfect with a hot coffee, if you fancy a summer party then adding fresh fruit will put the sunshine feeling into the day, or if it’s luxury you are after then vegan hazelnut frosting is something that will top this off a treat!

Paleo Cassava Banana Pancakes

Today I have a lovely treat in store for you all, who can resist a healthy, filling and nutritious breakfast? Not me! Here you will see with the help of my lovely guest blogger how you can make super easy Paleo Cassava Banana Pancakes and pick up a few tips on the Paleo way of cooking too.

Rachel Peterson is a Paleo blogger and self-professed Twitter fanatic from the US. She enjoys cooking, Zumba, and giving out nutrition advice to friends, family, and pretty much anyone who will listen! Her blog can be found at: www.austinpaleogrrl.blogspot.com

It’s over to you Rachel…

These pancakes are the perfect breakfast (or dinner!) food, and their light and fluffy texture can easily be achieved using what may be considered somewhat unconventional ingredients.

I am a Paleo blogger from Austin, Texas USA. This banana pancake recipe was born through trial and error. It took me three tries to get it just right! You don’t have to follow a Paleo diet to enjoy them, and the type of flour used (cassava – also known as yuca root) works just as well (if not better) than conventional wheat or white flour and is much healthier. Plus, cassava flour has some calcium and potassium in it.

Being Paleo, I don’t eat any grains (especially gluten), so I had to find an alternative flour so that I could still enjoy my favorite breakfast! I personally use Otto’s Cassava Flour, as I think it has the best texture and taste. It can be purchased on Amazon or in some health food stores. These pancakes are delicious served up with sliced bananas and pure maple syrup or with any other ingredients you can dream up. The possibilities are endless!

This recipe yields 6 small pancakes

Ingredients

5 US Tablespoons cassava flour

1 US Tablespoon organic honey

½ US Teaspoon baking soda

1 pureed banana

2 free range or pastured eggs

Coconut oil for cooking

 

Directions

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, honey, baking soda and eggs.

In a blender, combine one whole ripe banana with a small bit of water and blend until smooth

Add blended banana into your batter mixture and whisk until smooth

Next, heat a small skillet on stove top to medium heat and add in a small amount of coconut oil. I recommend coconut oil, because it melts quickly and has a medium smoke point (350° F or 171º C).

When your skillet is warmed up enough, scoop ¼ US cup of pancake batter and pour it onto the skillet, tilting the pan up and down just a bit so that the batter spreads out into an even circle.

Some bubbles will begin to form in the batter, and these pancakes will brown quite quickly, so be sure to check them often with your spatula. When browned to your liking, flip the pancake onto its other side and cook for another 30-45 seconds

Repeat with the rest of the batter, and serve warm with your favorite toppings!

Tip: to keep the pancakes warm, put them on a plate and keep them covered in the microwave until you are finished using up all of the batter

Thank you Rachel for this yummy recipe. You can see more of what Rachel is up to on her  Twitter and Facebook pages.

 This is so good I’ve put it in a printable format below. Enjoy!

You never guess what… It’s Holiday Time!

Yippie, it’s now just around the corner, in just a jiffy we’ll be jetting off for a week in the sun! Fingers crossed on the sun bit but I’m hopeful, optimistic and downright determined that it will be sunny so that these legs can turn from flour white to bronzed turkey goddess!

via GIPHY

It can’t come too soon, it’s been a busy year so far and I know when work and the whole juggling aspect of my chosen lifestyle gets a bit much. The kids, my mum and I will be going for the sun and my OH will be heading to the mountains for his visit home. We always have a break this time of year then we do the family holiday around the end of the summer holidays.

I’ve enjoyed having some more guest posts on the blog recently there’s a wonderful banana pancake recipe that has a twist. I have also been experimenting and have developed a vegan chocolate cake that has gone down a treat at home.  I am so pleased that I found this outlet of blogging and I thank you for reading what I come up with to share. Every visit is appreciated so much.

vegan chocolate cake

I will also be sharing my gardening adventures shortly. The patio vegetable garden is coming on a treat and we recently had our first lettuce on our dinner table, it was a big whoop whoop moment for me! Watch out snails, these are not for sharing!

it's holiday time
A small lettuce but with a big heart:)

I am hoping to write some poetry while I am away. I have had ideas swirling around about some topics that are dear to me. To be honest I just haven’t had the head space to be able to concentrate on them. Too much going on and no quiet time. Another reason why the break is going to be so good.

All of these will be available on the blog in the next week. I look forward to seeing what you think to the latest adventures in the myrealfairy household.

Have a look at my current competition to win 2 wonderful wooden toy trucks while you’re here and I would be over the moon if you would consider nominating me in the upcoming awards below. It will take 2 minutes and mean so much to me.

Chocolate and Cherry Tiffin – Guest Post Recipe

Guest Posting for me today is Ruth, a 36 year old, mum of two from the West Midlands. Ruth’s a Lifestyle blogger, High school teacher and full time tea drinker.

Ruth blogs at www.craftwithcartwright.co.uk where she writes about recipes, reviews, parenting and crafts. Pop along when you’ve seen this yummy recipe and see her on her blog.

Chocolate and Cherry Tiffin Recipe.

Tiffin is a cold set hard pressed chocolate and biscuit combo. You’ll have to go far to find anything more deliciously chocolatey, sweet and crumbly. It is moreish beyond belief. In an attempt to make it slightly healthier I’ve added dried cherries, you could also try sultanas, cranberries or even figs. But be warned this is a calorific treat and should not be consumed in one sitting.

I also included in brackets how to make it gluten free, which is pretty simple with some ingredient substitutions.

You will need:

  • 225g digestive biscuits, (gluten free version) crushed
  • 100g dried cherries
  • 100g butter
  • 25g sugar
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder (check gluten free)
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup
  • 225g plain chocolate (check gluten free, I use green and Blacks)

 

  1. First crush the biscuits in a food processor or a sealed food bag with a rolling pin.
  2. Then tip the crushed biscuits into a large mixing bowl and add the dried cherries.
  3. Melt the butter, sugar, cocoa powder and golden syrup over a low heat in a heavy based saucepan.
  4. Once melted, combine the butter mixture with the biscuits in the mixing bowl.
  5. Press the mixture into an 8” square tin and leave to cool.
  6. Once cool, melt the chocolate in a bowl sat over a saucepan of simmering water or in a microwave.
  7. Then spread it over the top of the biscuit mixture whilst still in the tin.
  8. When set, remove the tiffin from the tin and cut into squares using a sharp knife.

Blogger Recognition Award …Let’s Party!

Wow, there are whoops of joy coming from the myrealfairy household this week. I am chuffed to bits to be nominated for the blogger recognition award by the lovely Jaki over at jakijellz.com The wonderful thing about this award is that it’s by a fellow blogger. To be rewarded by people who know what it’s like to be hunkered over a laptop trying to make sense out of the words we want to write is a real honour.

This award is also going to let you know a little more about me if you haven’t come across my blog before. Or, if you have then lovely to see you again and enjoy the post:)

So… here are the rules:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  2. Write a post to show your award.
  3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  5. Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to. (if 15 is pushing it a bit for you then do 10;)
  6. Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

HOW MY BLOG STARTED……

It stated at the beginning of 2016. I wanted to have a creative outlet that was something completely different from my full-time day job and that wasn’t totally focused on the children. Something I could be in control of and didn’t answer me back!

My idea was to have a blog which incorporated a fairy, folklore, mystical, practical, lifestyle, parenting and reviews theme! Seems a bit much and really because I had never done anything like this before it was all far too jumbled at the start. I was trying too hard. Nevertheless it was an idea and little by little I made it happen and started creating my blog.

I even did two posts during those first few months called Tales of a newbie blogger 1 and Tales of a newbie blogger 2 – the logo trials to chart my progress a little. I love looking back at those posts now and seeing what I was facing at that time and relate it to how far I have moved forward. The blog is very different now and I have found my feet and the areas that I enjoy writing about. It’s far more in the lifestyle/parenting bracket.

ADVICE TO NEW BLOGGERS……

  1. Buy the biggest notebook you can and keep it safe! I have never taken so many notes in my life. Especially when you are first starting your blog and thinking about hosting, web domains, themes and all the bloggy techi stuff that you suddenly have in front of you. It can all become a bit overwhelming and I found it easiest to make brief little notes on different subject headings so that I didn’t forget. Then, when I had a moment I would flick through them and it helps all of this new information to settle in.
  2. Don’t break the bank starting your blog. There are a few expenses that you have to pay out for like your hosting package and buying your domain name. However, there are loads and loads of freebies going forward. Lots of free plug-ins and themes, scheduling apps and all sorts. It can be done very cheaply and for me that is important because I then don’t have to worry about money, I can enjoy it for the really exciting and creative outlet that it is for me.

My overall comment to make would be to have fun with it and enjoy how it makes you feel.

I’ve looked at the idea of adding nominations a bit differently and included blogs and twitter folks who are a mixture of people who are new to me, people who I have seen – loved their work but not made contact with and those that I regularly visit online. Please pop over to their twitter site and onto their blogs too to say hi.

MY BLOGGER NOMINATIONS ARE:

Is social media and technology affecting your family?

“Come down for tea” I hollar cheerfully up the stairs….. a minute or so goes by….

“boys, come on sweeties, it’s on the table….” more time passes and not a peep can be heard.

It’s now on the table and I’m getting a bit irritated….”Boys!!”

I’m starting to boil now…. “Right I’m going to count to 3!”

Eventually they appear, not in the least bit aware of the effect of my shouting up the stairs. I’ve now got to get myself out of the self induced strop that I’m in because day after day my voice is just not having the effect I think it should. My little boys are getting into a world of their own and that world is inhabited by the likes of YouTube stars and watching people carry out the silliest of pranks on shows they and their friends find online.

Now, I love to blog, my youngest loves to vlog for my blog and I have brought them the gadgets to watch this stuff on so really the blame lands firmly with me, I realise that but it’s all starting to get on my wick a bit.

Me and the OH do chat about the gadgets in our house and the boys use of them. We are pretty good in a few areas, we don’t have any devices at the meal table, homework is done straight away and they both do classes after school. It’s still amazes me though how they can get so into the zone watching these things on YouTube. I push for things like newsround and deadly 60 to throw in a bit of knowledge based learning but even Steve Backshaw has a bit of competition with the YouTube elite of Spencer et al.

Looking at the stats you can find for facebook, snapchat, instagram and all the other little cousins of the social media world you can see the millions of daily users and how year on year these are increasing to meet the demand of our younger generation hopping onto this online juggernaut.

I find myself dreaming of giving it all up and living on a farm away from the bustle of modern life. I see the huge pitfalls too of making this leap; money, contacts, work, school to name but a few of the basics. It’s still so tempting!

I was watching a film the other night about a family shunning the modern way of living and relying more on natural skills and intellectual educational learning and I kept thinking the same thing; there was something missing. The more I thought about it the easier it was to see, the missing link was ‘balance‘.

Technology can have so many great benefits to us and our family life, we can instantly communicate with friends and relatives on the other side of the world and keep our links with these people alive and current. On the other hand are our children’s social skills being permanently adversely affected? Are we protecting their well-being by letting them be in their rooms on social media apps that distort their communication methods into abbreviated text junk?

So, back to my thoughts about balance and what can I do to instil some balance in the way that we live our lives. We can take a moment to stop and think what we are filling our days with. We can discuss together whether this is the direction we want to continue in. Do we need to get back to basics. Not one of those political slogans but something that is right for our own families. Sitting and talking as a family, eating together at least once a day, spending time without phones, iPads or any form of devise. I’m willing to give this a go and put my other solution of wellington boots and the countryside to one side at the moment. I want us to connect.

Has technology affected the way that you and your family communicate with each other and have you seen this trend slowly change or were there certain triggers?

Let's see who has got the balance right, involve others in the discussion.Click To Tweet
