Boozy Love Cake

Happy Love!

I like to spend this day with all my loved ones and not just my significant other. Valentines day is blown out of proportion from a marketing point of view, but bring it back to basics, this is a day to celebrate love and keep love alive in your life, simple.

So I decided I love sweets and alcohol 🙂 It was time to combine my loves in one and this came up!

My dad said it smells a bit like rum when he saw the cake.. like it was a bad thing?! That is exactly what I was aiming for!

Tried to make this as healthy as possible, enjoy this with a glass of wine 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup candied fruits
  • 1/4 cup fruity red wine
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds
  • 2 mashed bananas
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 tsp of pumpkin all spice

Preparation:

  1. Place the candied fruits in the wine and rum to soak up. You can soak for anytime between a few hours to a weeks. I soaked mine for about a day but just a few hours is fine.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Combine wet ingredients in one bowl and dry ingredients in another.
  3. Grease cake pan with coconut oil .
  4. Stir everything well and pour the wet ingredients into the dry. Fold it all together till well incorporated and pour the bater into the cake pan.
  5. Bake this  for 35 minutes or till the toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Sahtein & Love Always

  1. It is so important to just relax and celebrate with loved ones on a day that gets way too much hype. I made a boozy dessert as well, this looks lovely. Did you use a heart shaped pan or shape it yourself??

  2. I just loved it! I don’t have a sweet tooth, but that one was delicious, light, and the smell was dazzling. It was the first time I taste that cake, however, it triggered a memory for me 🙂
    Good job, Rana 🙂
