Healthy Winter Treats For the Family

Healthy Winter Treats For the Family

In the cooler months I always feel naturally drawn to all things warm.

I love to prepare food that helps the body to feel yummy, warm & nourished.

This season I didn't really have to do too much hard looking for the right ingredients, as our garden just produced the most amazing pumpkin harvest we ever had and is now already in its second round of producing more of those delicious, versatile vegetables.

Therefore we had it all:

  • pumpkin soup,
  • pumpkin curry,
  • pumpkin scones,
  • roasted pumpkins,
  • pumpkin salad
  • and pumpkin cake!

Some recipes weren't as well received as others, (if you read my blog about lunch box ideas, you will know why :-)? )

But fortunately something my family did enjoy was Gluten Free Pumpkin Cake.

Very easy to make and absolutely delicious and it pretty much could cover your hole day: From breakfast to lunch boxes, afternoon tea and even as a dinner desert.

Therefore, I feel trilled to share this recipe with you today:
