Vegan tofu (sugar free) chocolate cake with coffee frosting and pecan topping!

As it’s my Dad’s birthday today, I decided to make a cake with a bit of a difference and with no guilt element attached to it! It was a great experiment for me as I have never made a cake using tofu before and I haven’t really ventured very far into vegan cake making yet. I will definitely be making more cakes like this…….this is only the beginning!

The recipe was adapted from this site: http://dairyfreecooking.about.com/od/cakes/r/veganchoccake.htm

I substituted maple syrup for honey (as I don’t trust myself with judging stevia in cake recipes and as of yet do not have any coconut sugar), canola oil for coconut oil, and I used spelt flour. I also added a handful of cacao nibs into the mixture.

The frosting was an invention that was inspired by the recipe at this site: http://www.instructables.com/id/coconut-oil-frosting/

I used 1/4 cup of extra virgin coconut oil, 2 sachets of stevia, 2 tablespoons of almond milk, 4 tablespoons of freshly brewed coffee, and ground arrowroot.

I am pleased with my first attempt 🙂

“When there is …

“When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you.”

(Taken from Thinkexist.com – “African Proverb quotes)

The people who want to make enemies of others should probably be greeted with love and forgiveness by those that they insist on picking fights with.  Giving these people energy and attention only feeds their cause and further aggravates their inner turmoil.

Relaxing and Inspiring Music

I am going a bit mad with posts tonight but if you want uplifting, inspiring and beautiful music to listen to then this is definitely a good playlist 🙂

“My primary rel…

“My primary relationship is with myself – all others are mirrors of it. As I learn to love myself, I automatically receive the love and appreciation that I desire from others. If I am committed to myself and to living my truth, I will attract others with equal commitment.”

So relevant right now 🙂

Man – The Biggest Predator On Earth

So I haven’t been on here for quite a while now but I saw this cute and very true animation the other day and thought I’d share it. It’s pretty scary how we as humans are such huge consumers and it seems like some people aren’t even conscious of the effect that our voracious appetites can have on the planet.

I will get back to blogging properly soon but in the meantime will share and re-blog little videos and posts that catch my eye 🙂

Why are we really here?

This is an excellent movie, can’t believe I haven’t seen it before! I have been asking myself for a long time why we are here and what life is really about and this video offers some very interesting approaches towards these questions!

Really interesting video – especially the beginning and middle sections!
