So these recipes came as a complete experiment, Shane LOVES shredded wheat and I am just not a fan, however I decided to give the fruit filled ones a try one day with yogurt and did them like you would over night oats and oh my goodness, they were delicious, they were like little gooey cake pieces in my breakfast and I instantly fell in love.
I then had the idea to turn them into a cake. Thought I had an amazing idea so in the blender they went to blitz down and the filling wouldn’t blend. Oh noes I thought, this just isn’t going to work. But not wanting to give up on the recipe I carried on as I do with recipes because that’s how we learn from our mistakes and adapt the recipes to work. Added all the remaining ingredients, popped it in the oven to bake and then hesitantly stuck my spoon in to take a mouthful… which then turned into another mouthful, and another until it was all gone. SUCCESS! It was blooming lovely. The fruit that hadn’t blended made this ideal as it kept little fruity pieces throughout the cake and it was delicious.
Some recommended items from our kitchen to make this dish…
- We use a NUTRiBULLET to blend and mix a lot of our recipes, its easy to clean and store plus affordable. Also great if you are into health and fitness and have lots of shakes and smoothies. Also great for making iced tea/coffee so is widely used and not just a kitchen ornament like a lot of appliances.
- Silicone whisks in varying sizes, much prefer silicone to metal as it rusts.
- Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
- Mixing bowls are always wanted in this household and these stackable ones save so much space in our cupboards.
- These little dishes are great for baking and also for doing just one portion of casserole, shepherds pie, chilli etc if you are cooking for one.
