I don’t make cakes very often, mainly as they normally aren’t that healthy and I don’t trust myself not to eat the whole darn thing. This cake is in the middle of the scale, or so I’ve convinced myself! And yes, it really is made with sweet potatoes! Continue reading “Sweet Potato & Walnut Cake”
Sugar seems to be the big debate of the moment, and I personally haven’t and wont be eliminating it from my diet completely.
