This is my most economic and thoughtful recipe called Leftover Fruit Cake Recipe. That is why I don’t mind calling this as My Budget Recipe :)… This Leftover Fruit Cake Recipe comes with a kiss of good health. Most of the times we have lot of fruits leftover in Fridge. Its like one apple or few strawberries, one banana Or a similar situation. I thought of making a healthy Leftover Fruit Cake Recipe with all these fruits. Also let me share with you this is one of my most moist, healthy, yum and delicious Leftover Fruit Cake.
To make it more healthier have added a dash of Oats, Flaxseed and Honey. What more one could ask for. This Leftover Fruit Cake also consist banana, strawberries and 1/2 apple. You could add nuts if you wish to. I have not added nuts though as I didn’t feel the need to add them.
I love playing with baking cakes. Love to use my imagination and experiment with different flavors. Also love to make something unique but healthy and safe. Health is given more importance when I decide on any recipe. As cakes are best way to go through any stomach. Then it doesn’t matter if you have added beet, carrots, oats, zucchini, bottle gourd, fruits or any damn thing. As long a the person you feed doesn’t know what is inside the cake.. ha ha.
Similar case with my mother. She will ensure everyone eats healthy but she won’t. So being her daughter I play smart and feed her one slice of cake. That takes care of her nutrition. Thank God for giving this innovation called baking to humans.
Also prefer making egg less cakes most of the times. As sometimes it is good to be vegetarian if not vegan right? Anyways I am talking too much today. So I will quietly move towards this Leftover Fruit Cake Recipe. Yeah but one thing more this cake is moist and great texture.
