Spelt Raspberry Tea Cake – so good you won’t believe it’s healthy

21 Jun

Ok, so I have used the term “healthy” a little loosely. But Women/Men & Kids can not live on vegetables alone.

Cold wintery days call for baking. Steaming pieces of cake that scorch your fingers & tantalise you with the smell’s of vanilla & berries are required when it is cold & blustery outside. Steamed vegetables just don’t cut it 🙂

They say your mental attitude affects everything – eating this cake made me so darn happy – it just has to be good for me!

This cake is delicious. It almost tastes like a sweet vanilla Danish, but then you get a bright pop of zingy raspberry that cuts through the sweet rich base giving the cake a whole new dimension of yumminess.

Spelt raspberry Tea Cake a’la Mama Going Natural

You will need:

  • 1 c milk (soy, coconut or a nut milk if you prefer)
  • 2/3 c kefir or yoghurt
  • 2 T coconut oil
  • 2 t vanilla extract
  • 1 c wholemeal spelt flour
  • 1 c white spelt flour
  • 1/2 c coconut sugar
  • 2 sticks stevia
  • 4 t baking powder
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t Himalayan salt
  • 1 1/4 c raspberries

Combine the first five ingredients in a bowl & mix well. Place the remaining ingredients minus the raspberries in a bowl & add the wet ingredient mix to the dry, stirring just enough to combine. Gently stir the raspberries through. Save the last 1/4 c of raspberries to place on the top of the cake just before placing it in the oven, as the mixed through berries have a tendency to sink.

Bake the cake for an hour at 175 degrees.

Eat hot, eat cold but don’t ask me what it tastes like two days old – because I don’t know 😉
