Monday night was our first cake club for 2016 and to kick start the year keeping in tune with New Year’s Resolutions the theme was ‘free from’ meaning ideally the cakes would be slightly more healthy than usual!
Bar 55 in Camden was the chosen venue for Monday’s cake club. With its huge choice of cocktails and Mondays two for 1 offer all night, it was the perfect place for nine of us to meet up. Ye that’s right, we had nine people and therefore loads of cake!
Any thoughts about being somewhat healthy went right out the window when I realised there would be ten cakes to try. With a mix of savoury and sweet cakes there was a great selection consisting of: Lynn’s savoury aztec bundt cake, Jelena’s savoury upside down cake, Fiona’s flour free raspberry and almond cake, Sandra’s flour less chocolate cake, Amy’s orange and chocolate cake, Orls’a lemon drizzle, Cat’s white chocolate japanese rose infused cheesecake and Joela’s lemon cake.
I opted for a Vegan Chocolate Avocado Torte which my friend Sareta had sent me a link to. As I had a busy Sunday I wanted something quick and easy I could make on the Saturday that would still stay fresh. The first raw chocolate cake I made was from the Rooted Nutrition class I attended in Vancouver which was delicious and I did want to make this one again but couldn’t find the recipe. Therefore chocolate and avocado it was!
