Chameleon Spice Cake

Date: December 28, 2017
Yield: 12 servings
Time needed:1 hour + time to cool & add icing

I tried the banana version of this versatile cake. The cake itself was ok, but rather humdrum. A lighter flour, such as unbleached white flour might have let the taste of the spices come through better.
I made the icing, but threw it out; powdered milk is no good substitute for icing sugar!!! The icing you see in the photo was a more standard recipe and much better tasting.

Elisha’s Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Date tried: August 9/16
Yield: 2 dozen
Time needed: 45 minutes

These are one of the staff-created variations on the basic muffin recipe used by Alternative Grounds, a popular fair-trade coffee roasters in Toronto. Sadly they no longer operate the restaurant where these muffins were served each morning, but the coffee is still available at various local outlets.

This is a very good muffin, moist and tasty. Good call, Elisha!
