Jake knows exactly how I feel.
I enjoy cooking and baking. I don’t do it that much and I always need a recipe, but I like it.
Today I baked not one, but TWO vegetable-based cakes.
My mooms had an abundance of tomatoes from her garden, so we googled a recipe and ended up with a Tomato Spice Cake.
It’s basically a lot of tomatoes, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
In this month’s Food & Drink magazine (from the LCBO), they featured a recipe for a “natural red velvet cake made from chocolate and beets”. I love chocolate and I love beets, so this seemed like a magical combination.
It didn’t taste that much like beets, much to the delight of my mostly beet-indifferent family. And it was the first time I attempted a red velvet cake so yay!
Paired with a cute glass of ice wine, this dessert was definitely a good choice to celebrate the end of summer/beginning of autumn!
