Last night I headed off to my Nana’s for a nice family dinner. My great Aunty Rosalyn is down to stay and so it was nice for us three ladies plus my cheeky Grandad to have a nice meal together. I’m incredibly fortunate to have a wonderful Nana that cooks me paleo food whenever I go around for dinner. Aunty Rosalyn is also eating paleo so it was nice to be able to support her and help her out when I went over too.
Since Nana was cooking dinner, which by the way was a delicious roast lamb shank on a bed of kumara, pumpkin and carrot mash with green veges, I figured it was only fair to take dessert. Queue my quest for the perfect after dinner dessert that wasn’t classic paleo baking. I search recipes high and low before I found one that suited to tweak.
Funnily enough I got halfway through baking it before I realised I’d left out the honey.. So alas I sweetened the fresh whipped cream with some natvia (erythritol & stevia mix) to accompany the not-so-sweet cake. However the cake wasn’t too sweet, although next time I would definitely add honey.
