    HG I know the feeling. I made a chocolate cake and as I am dieting it's just OH.

    I've made sugar free banana bread for 2 weeks in a row and whilst it tastes nice, I'd be interested in any other sugar / syrup / sweetener-free recipes tried and tested by OS regulars for snacking on. (I've been relying on ripe bananas, dates and currants for sweetening purposes thus far).

    I think I'm going to have to go down the savoury scone route for my next attempt. Or perhaps a savoury rock bun, that could work?

    I add unsweetened applesauce in place oil and it sweetens the cake a bit.

    I'm experimenting with the fruit:fat:flour ratios (egg-free) and getting there through a process of trial and error but I'm either going to get fat in the process or quit baking altogether.

    I had to bring some food to a friend's birthday this weekend and miraculously had all the ingredients I needed for some amazing vegan chocolate chip cookies in my cupboard! :D With just a hint of cinnamon and coconut (thanks to the coconut oil used in them). They seemed to please all the omnivores, so I'd definitely count it as a success!

    Yesterday I made bread dough with the kids at church and we 'baked' it on my george forman grill to make flatbread.

    The kids loved it, we all sat round a table watching bread cook - the only case of a burned finger was myself (forgot to take tongs).

    Upside down cake which I haven't made for years, it's delish

    Greased and lined sandwich tin, sprinkled bit of brown sugar on bottom put halved nectarines in cut side down ( de stoned!) then popped usual 2 egg mix on top and baked for 35 mins. Shall be doing the a lot over the summer I think.

    Great as there is only the two of us so will do for a couple of days.
    2019, move forward with positivity! I am the opposite of Eyeore :rotfl:

    I have everything ready to assemble an American cheesecake with rhubarb and raspberries (last year's from the freezer) as topping. I learned this one from my auntie in California in the long gone 80s! This ever so versatile recipe has been a staple ever since, with rhubarb, plums, cherries or any berries - traditionally it's made with blueberries but it's not something I have been growing successfully, lol.
