There are two camps in the world when it comes to Valentines Day, those who embrace the hearts, chocolates and schmaltzy cards and those who want to run away and wait till it’s over. Which ever camp you are in, we think everybody likes to show people they care, and that can happen 365 days of the year! We say ditch the flowers, and show you lurve someone by baking a delicious and healthy cake (healthy of course because we want to make sure that our loved ones stay around as long as possible!).
For Valentines or anytimes, how about a Spelt & Beetroot Bundt Cake. We will spare you too many puns, but our name for this cake is “A whole lotta Love”, so throw some Led Zepplin on spotify, get your apron on and show someone you love them with cake!
