My gorgeous nephews, Campbell and Lucas 😀

My nephews were coming over for afternoon tea today so I thought I had better make them cake 😀

I had a quick look at my favourite website – The Healthy Chef and decided on the apple and cinnamon bread. The Healthy Chef recipes are usually sweetened with honey, dates or maple syrup so I was surprised that this one didn’t have any sweetener in it at all. The original recipe does say don’t be tempted to add any sugar as the apples will be sweet enough. It got the thumbs up from my nephews so safe to say, it was sweet enough. I have converted the recipe to Thermomix however the original recipe can be found here.

You will need:
450g fuji apples cut into quarters
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
3 free range eggs
40g macadamia nut oil
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
200g wholemeal spelt flour

Method:
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
Chop apples for 3 seconds on speed 4-5 or until grated. Then add the baking powder, salt, eggs, oil, cinnamon and vanilla into the bowl and mix on reverse, speed 2 for 10 seconds.
Add the spelt flout and mix on reverse, speed 1.5 for 20 seconds.
Line a loaf tin with baking powder and pour mixture into loaf tin. I thinly sliced up another fuji apple and layered on top with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer comes out clean. I had to cover my tin after 45 mins as it started to brown too much on top. I then baked for a further 10 mins.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for 1 hour before taking cake out of the tin.

Enjoy xx

The Suveran Cafe (Oxford Street, Bondi Junction Sydney), is up there with my faves!  This place is amazing – sugar free, dairy free, flour free, gluten free, wheat free, yeast free, grain free, soy free, egg free, legume free, tap water and nightshade free!!!! AND, the food tastes amazing!!!  AND cheap!

A friend at work recommended I go to Suveran when I was travelling to Sydney last year and I’m so glad we made the trip.  We stay in Manly when in Sydney so it’s not exactly close to Suveran but well worth the effort.  We have been a few times now and will go back every time we are there.  On your first visit, you even get a free chocolate!

The guys that work there are really friendly and obviously have a real passion for health.  They also sell herbal cleanses, supplements, books, cooking classes and skin care.

Next time you are in Bondi, check out The Suveran Cafe, you won’t be disappointed!
