We all love something a little sweet with our morning or afternoon break; maybe when we have friends over for Afternoon Tea but don’t want to go the full OTT or just because it’s a Sunday! The fact you’re going to include one of your required 5 a day is a bonus?!
Adding courgette to this lovely light chocolate cake gives it added moistness as chocolate cakes can sometimes turn out a little dry. Spelt flour is used also for easier digestion and those with a high wheat intolerance and finally agave syrup for sweetness instead of refined sugar …. sure it’s positively healthy! 😉
If you have ripe bananas in your house and want something a little different, then this recipe is perfect. It’s so light and moist with the banana which contrasts so well with tart, fresh cranberries.
Making it with spelt wholemeal flour adds a lower calorie content and it’s one of the healthier recipes to try. I think it has about 92 calories per slice. If you don’t have spelt flour, use normal wholemeal instead.
The original recipe is made in a 2lb loaf tin but I made mine in two of the 1 lb decorative card cases. They look lovely and are perfect for gift giving.
