This food blogging is all consuming and takes up a lot of time but what a great ride it is. From the cooking to the styling to the photography, it is a true joy. But the best part is the people you meet online who have the same passion.
I have been doing quite a few gluten-free meals lately and it’s mainly because there are so many great blogs out there that concentrate on gluten-free and they fascinate me. I suspect I feel better when I am not throwing a lot of wheat down my throat but it’s not clear cut enough for me to make the leap to wheat-free or gluten-free. Anyway, tomorrow is visiting-Mum day and she is gluten-free so I went looking at one of the best blogs for healthy cakes and desserts which are often also gluten-free. You have met her before - Chocolate Covered Katie and that’s where you will find this recipe. It is similar to this cake I made of hers a few weeks back with the big difference that this one has almost no sugar because it has a whole pile of dates in it and they are already sweet. I had a slice after photographing it and I felt I was being very healthy with all those beans, oats, dates and applesauce. And despite all those beans, my stomach was very happy with me afterwards.
I threw a bit of lemon icing on top to make it pretty but ice cream or cream would go great with it to make a very satisfying dessert.
