Happy Birthday Nutty Meatfruit

Today is the first anniversary of the instantiation of this blog. I am most grateful for my readers’ advice and empathy during a year of setbacks and discoveries. The food lovers (and haters!) I have met through this journal make the adventure a little more bearable. Have some cake!

Sugar-free Grain-free SCD Birthday Cake

Sugar-free Grain-free SCD Birthday Cake (Frosted with Frosting!)

Cake Ingredients:
4 Eggs and 2 Egg Whites
2 tsp Baking Soda
½ cup Honey
¼ cup Nut or Seed Oil
½ cup fruit (Apple, Pumpkin, Ripe Banana? Pick one, or none—it’s your birthday!)
½ tsp: Cinnamon, Ginger
¼ tsp: Nutmeg, ground Cloves
4 Cups Almond Flour

Frosting Ingredients (from
1 cup Honey
2 Egg Whites

Combine all cake ingredients and bake in two 8” pans at 325 for approximately 40 minutes or until light brown and cooked through.

Once cake has cooled: “Boil honey approximately 10 minutes in heavy saucepan. Honey will turn dark. Beat egg whites until stiff. Pour honey in fine stream into egg whites while beating. Frost cake immediately.” Note: attend the boiling honey – it becomes quite bodacious!
