I guess I have a wee bit of explaining to do, seeing as I disappeared from posting for over a month. Really the explaining though is going to be even less than ‘a-wee-bit’ seeing as it can all be explained in one word: rest.
Essentially life got really busy, hectic and overwhelming and I wanted to invest my time in something other than recipe posting.
During my hiatus I have not however gone without my fair share of delicious high protein personal chocolate cake.
Earl of Grey Chocolate Cake
•1 tbsp chocolate whey protein powder
•1 tbsp cocoa powder
•1tbsp coconut flour
•1-2 tbsp greek yogurt
•1/4 tsp baking powder•1/4 tsp baking soda
•2 tbsp egg whites
•2 tbsp steeped earl grey tea
•1/8-1/4 tsp vanilla extract (depending on your preference)
1)Mix all ingredients dry ingredients
2) Add in egg whites. Mix. Add remaining liquids and pumpkin. Mix
3)Microwave for 2.5 minutes. Flip. Microwave for 1 minute on 50% power level
There is nothing more convenient than a microwave single serving cake. One bowl, and no hot oven.
High protein and full of healthy ingredients.
The chocolate is not too overpowering so you can detect the faint ear grey tea.
This has a very cake like texture as opposed to many other protein microwave cakes.
•I used a cereal bowl to mix and microwave this cake in.
•The ‘icing’ you see is a combination of cocoa, greek yogurt and protein powder.
So what have I been doing with my time? More reading, knitting, miscellaneous crafts, some drawing, expanding my general knowledge (who knew that a woodpecker could peck 20 times a second!?), and enjoying my time doing non-food/fitness related things.
I can’t say I know for sure exactly what direction I am going to take my blog, or if it is even going to go in any direction at all. I know that I am not willing to spend ALL my free time writing and reading about food.
That said my short term plan is to post a recipe once a week, and I am hoping to be able to comment more on other blogs (I can’t say I ever stopped reading).
