Welcome to the 5th day of Fresh Tasty Valentine. I’ve had such a fantastic time the past few weeks coming up with these recipes, and hopefully you’ll want to share the with your valentine. Since I started with a soup I figured it was fitting to finish with a dessert – one that’s on the healthier side at that! Envy Apples started in New Zealand with a mission to make a better non-GMO apple and I’m rather certain they have succeeded! Now they have expanded to Washington state, allowing them to offer in season apples nearly year round. While I debated using mine in a savory dish, in the end my sweet tooth won out. Plus after the success with the hemp seeds in recreating a nutty taste I wanted to see if I could do that again.
Needless to say this cake was a total success! The hemp seeds added the perfect nutty taste and texture, would easily have guessed the cake had walnuts in it. Just one more reason why you should enter the giveaway if you haven’t already. Plus as a bonus the envy apples come with an apple corer that is so easy to use that I managed it one handed while wearing a certain little fussy one.
