Glutenfree carob cake
This week my mother-in-law brought us a gift! A dozen eggs from chickens that walk freely all day, are fed without transgenics, and treated like princesses in a friends’ farm.
It’s true that I prefer not to have this food on my daily life, but when I get fresh eggs from healthy & happy chickens (as I suppose these ones are), then I take advantage and make some recipes out of it. … and that’s what happened with this carob cake … I think even the chickens would like to taste it! 🙂
The king of all ingredients is carob which I love to use as a substitute for cocoa. While cocoa is a tropical product with a very acidifying effect on our body, carob grows in Portugal and therefore seems to me more suitable to those who live here. The taste is not quite the same, but children that tastes this cake always come and asks for the second piece of the “chocolate cake”…
Give it a try and then tell me…Isn’t it delicious?! 🙂
