Yet another wonderful recipe from the PostPunkKitchen blog. I present to you, the
Cherry Chocolate-Chunk Mini Loaves
Except, instead of making 8 mini loaves, I made one big loaf.
It tasted very yummy, but the texture is a bit off. I think I didn’t leave it in the oven for long enough, so it’s more a brownie-like consistency – which is fine. Makes no difference to me, really.
Today I had a wonderful encounter. I was strolling around the Farmer’s Market and saw a small booth with the sign: “Organic, vegan, gf cakes”. Easy choice much?! Of course I walked over and admired the awesome goodies. I enquired which ones were vegan, and that included all of the delicious-looking cupcakes and muffins – only one of the bread sorts wasn’t.
Unfortunately, Nessie wouldn’t let me take a picture of her booth but here is one I found online in an article by the EMC Kingston:
The best? I didn’t have enough change, so after our nice chat she actually made a special price just for me. SCORE! I got an apple-cinnamon-quinoa muffin. It tasted great, although the quinoa taste was a bit dominant for me. That being said, I’d never tried quinoa in baked goods before, so I guess that might be normal. Apart from that, the muffin was great! Everything else looked delicious as well. The prices were a bit steep – $4.50 for a cupcake – but given that they’re organic, vegan, glutenfree and DELICIOUS; it’s definitely worth it for a treat.
So if you’re around the Toronto-Kingston area, please do check her out! You will find her booth on the Kingston town market and the Wednesday farmer’s market on Uni Avenue. The website is nessiecakes.com (also check out this post for more info and more cake pictures).
Have a great
Edit: Damn, it’s Wednesday. Where is my mind today?!
