Cake Again?!

 Veronica, our middle child, is turning seven on Wednesday, and has begged for a strawberry-chocolate cake. First of all, Ew. Secondly, how am I going to pull this off?

I've spent about an hour trying to find a recipe that would work for us, but wasn't having much luck until I hit upon this blog: PrettyinPrimal

Looks like a great recipe (I'll figure out a substitute for sugar though) and an interesting site.


  1. How about fondue? Strawberries dipped in melted chocolate...yummm.

  2. Look into Stevia as a substitute for the sugar. I'm pretty sure it's Primal approved. I'm new to this as well, so doublecheck it :-)


  3. Hey!

    There are 2 kinds of "sugar" that I use, and neither of them affect the blod suger levels unlike Aspartame or Sucralose which they use in diet coke.
    They are also 100% natural and no creepy/funcky chemical process is involed in manufracturing.

    Stevia: Its 250 times stronger than normal suger which makes it a bit hard to measure. It also has a licorice-like aftertaste at high concentrations.

    Erythritol: Has about 0.8 the strengt of suger so a little bit weaker. Like stevia totally natural product.

    I usually take a Erythritol and then add a little bit of stevia. Takes some time to get the proportions right but then u get a sweet flavour without any aftertaste or bitterness.
    Doesn´t taste 100% like real suger but its sweet and works well for baking.
    I only use it in baking so don´t know how it works in coffe or tea.

    Take care and keep at it. =)
