It’s Hip to be a Coffee Cake Square!




This cake is moist, full of flavour, and addictive. It’s made with healthful ingredients. All the ingredients I used were organic. An added bonus is that I cut the sugar content found in most cakes. The unprocessed sugars give it a dense coffee cake consistency. The baking powder lightens up the texture. The whole wheat flour was milled from wheat berries in my Vitamix. There is only a tiny bit of added salt.

To curb the addictive nature, the cake was portioned into intoxicatingly aromatic 16 equal pieces. Wrapped them individually. Then froze them. Knowing that when I take out just one, it’s only 158 calories. Eat this without guilt as a natural wholesome treat.

I’ve been calculating and logging my entire food intake while I continue to lose weight in a healthy fashion. As this is my own recipe creation, I have outlined its nutritional information for you.
