A Quick, Homemade Vegan Country Cake Recipe. From YouAreYOU founder, Vegan and Wellbeing Coach Patricia Foster 

A Quick, Homemade Vegan Country Cake Recipe


I fancied a vegan cake snack treat. Something comforting and warm. Natural with no sugar.

I threw together, very quickly, a few ingredients and mixed them together in my smallest baking bowl.

After 15 minutes, I covered the bowl with a lid, while it finished baking, so it didn’t dry out too much.

20 minutes later!

Voila!

Yum!


A moist, sweet enough, no sugar-egg-dairy cake.


Satisfied my snack craving as well as my desire for the aroma of home baking throughout my house (who doesn’t love that smell). Yum!



The ingredients are approximate:


I Cup organic Oats

1 Cup Spelt flour

2 x Tbsp Agave nectar

1 Medool date chopped

1/2 Over-ripened banana
1 Squeeze of Fresh orange juice, from 


1/2 Organic orange


1/2 Cup Alpro Coconut rice drink (or use almond milk or other Coconut Milk varieties)


1 Tsp coconut oil
1 Tbsp Sunflower oil
2 x Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Vanilla extract
Sunflower Seeds
Chia Seeds
Walnuts
1 Tsp of baking powder
Oven: 160° Fahrenheit 

Unfortunately, there are no photos of the whole cake, as I ate it very quickly!

Message from Sable Poet-in-Residence Patricia Foster:

I am still ecstatic and floating, after receiving my award for Poetry Services, within the Art and Culture category, at the empowering awards event Together We Rise.

I had written an acceptance speech, but instead ended up speaking from the heart. I was immensely overwhelmed, as well as inspired by all the other award recipients and their amazing stories. A lot of the women, including myself, had overcome incredible obstacles, to accomplish what we have today.

“Day in, day out we work hard, in our life purpose without little or any recognition. Thank YOU MGT and GCC  for the award!” ~ Patricia Foster
