Easter Breakfast Cake

Mar 21, 2024 | Recipes, Health & Wellbeing, Nutrition, Cleanse & Detox

This is a healthier alternative to an Easter Simnel cake. Spiced with cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, and based on oats and fruit rather than flour and sugar. Great for a morning tea, and with it’s basis on fruit and oats, you can even get away with having this high fibre cake for breakfast.

This cake is delicious served warm or cold, and freezes well. Cut into portions before you freeze to make for a quick and easy breakfast. Great thawed the night before and fine to eat cold on its own or with natural yoghurt, or it can be gently reheated, whichever takes your fancy.
