muesli cake- Happy world baking day!


May 19, 2013 by alexanderwillowharvey

mueseli cake 2So its world baking day today and I almost forgot. I missed PB&J day and choc chip cookie day, I just couldn’t miss world baking day as well! So I rooted around in my cupboards last night and made this. This cake is kinda like a cakey granola bar, its great for breakfast with a glass of orange juice, or a big mug of coffee, it will certainly get your day of baking off to a good start! Just don’t tell my Mum I used all her muesli….. she probably wont notice.

1/2 cup Apple juice
1/2 cup chunky Apple sauce

Mix the wet into the dry and fold in the raisins, flaxseed and sunflower seeds. Scoop into the cake tin and press in with your finger tips until you have an even layer, then smooth over with the back of a spoon. Bake for about 30 to 35 minutes until firm to the touch and golden brown on top.

    I am in love with this idea. I made an oatmeal breakfast cookie with apple sauce but I want to pack more of a nutrition punch. I will defiantly be trying this!

    I love this recipe and by now my collegues as well :) would it be ok for you if I place the recipe (modified to muesli cupcakes) in an ebook which some german and swiss vegan doing this weekend at a ‘Vegan Twitter summer meeting’ to collect donation for the animal sanctuary ‘Hof Stellichte’ in northern Germany? Would be great. Thanks in advance
