Oats & Fruits Parfait ! ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ“Perfect breakfast, dessert or snack ! Simple, soak oats overnight with your choice of plant based milk kept in the fridge, I used almond. Next day add different cut up fruits, your favorites ๐Ÿ˜Š, then toppings could be nuts, or shavings (coconut, almond) I also like to add additional nutrients such as chia seeds, flax, hempseeds. Then drizzle a little maple syrup to sweeten it. Set it up in a beautiful glass, when you can eat something with your eyes ๐Ÿ‘€ before you actually have tasted, it is even better ๐Ÿ˜‹

Orange Cake

Light tasting with a smooth texture, perfect for afternoon tea or anytime ! I used a Bundt shape but you can certainly use any shape pan you prefer.

3 cups of all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp making soda
Pinch of salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup of coconut milk
1 cup of plant based yogurt
1 cup of plant based butter (softened)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp orange extract
1/2 cup freshly squeezer orange juice
I used icing sugar as a topping but you may certainly personalise it with other toppings such as orange zest, shredded coconut or other

Mix all dry together in a bowl and all wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Add the liquid bowl to the dry and stir well until smooth.

Add to a greased pan, I greased mine with oil spray  and bake for 1 hour afterwards. Let cake cool down completely and ready to serve !
