On the matter of healthy eating, let us share with you a very special cake recipe…..which is sugarless, eggless, milkless, butterless, fatless, etc. You would think that the cake will taste weird without the usual ingredients …..but the cake is really exquisite in taste. No kidding you, just ask Hau Kiang and Merlyn. Both have tasted the cake several times and Hau Kiang has made it several times (he has also added brandy to make it more exquisite). Give it a try instead of the usual cake biasa….you will be surprised.
The recipe is extracted from a book called “Cooking the Whole Foods Way” by Christina Pirello, a leukemia patient and modified (by my boss).
