Eggless Chocolate Cake

Eggless Chocolate Cake

I was given this recipe by a family member, her grand daughter has in the past been unable to eat dairy products and this is the turn to recipe which is perfect for everyone, including all chocoholics.  I've very slightly adapted the recipe. My icing includes dairy but the cake is just as delicious without any topping. The cake is moist, improves and gets quite sticky after a couple of days. We served ours with creme fraiche and it's also fabulous with a dollop of ice cream.

Spicy Red Lentil Soup

Spicy Red Lentil Soup

A warming bowl of delicious spicy soup that is quick to make but has a ridiculously long list of ingredients.

The recipe is very versatile and the sweet paprika can be swapped with smoked sweet paprika, next time I make this soup I'll add a chopped carrot to give a more interesting texture and I'll cut down on the amount of lentils.

Lentils aren't a pulse I usually cook with but they're only about £1.00 a bag, are super good for you, don't require any soaking and can be used to thicken stews and soups.

The mixed seeded bread is made in the Thermomix and I'll post the recipe for this over the next few weeks.
