as a bride to be i have tulle on my mind...isn't tool gorgeous and fabulous? it makes me smile whenever i see tulle...tulle wedding gowns...rolls of tulle...bows made out of tulle...ahhhh...y'all get the picture i guess...i believe i have totally changed my mind about my dress...i think i want both lace and tulle incorporated into the final product...so tomorrow i am going to try on dresses...i am going to try on the original dress i fell in love with...and i am going to try dresses on that have tulle skirts...a plethora of layers of tulle...i am over the moon...and i am bursting with excitement...
ok...on to the pumpkin on my mind...i was craving pumpkin pie...but i needed something low sugar...low fat...and low calorie...so, i threw a few ingredients together and created the most delicious pumpkin pie cake...
pumpkin pie cake (vegan)
1 14 oz. can pureed organic pumpkin
3/4 cup water
3/4 cuo sugar free organic apple sauce
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
3 tbsp organic blackstrap molasses
1 tsp vanilla powder
2 2/3 cup organic whole grain spelt flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp himalayan crystal sea salt
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp ground nutmeg
3/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/8 tsp ground cloves
preheat the oven to 350 F. lightly grease an 8x8 cake pan...
in a large mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin, water, applesauce, maple syrup, molasses, and vanilla. mix well. in another bowl add spelt flour, the baking powder, salt, and spices, mix well. add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix very well.
pour batter into the prepared cake pan. bake for 45 to 50 minutes. it's moist and spicy and fabulous...enjoy!
guess who licked the bowl clean?????
have a beautiful weekend my friends...
