With Christmas right around the corner, we thought you might like to get your pets to try to make you a cake when they are in the kitchen making those delicious cookies that they won’t let you have (unless it hits the floor, then all bets are off-right?). Here’s a cake recipe that my staff found that I’m going to make them make for me soon!
Christmas Cake Recipe
2 cups of whole wheat flour
¼ cup of wheat germ
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
1 cup of molasses
½ cup of canola oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 apple, cored and chopped
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Oil a 12-cup bundt pan with vegetable oil and flour.
- In a bowl mix the flour, wheat germ, baking powder, and cinnamon together and set it on the side. Then in another large bowl mix together the molasses, and oil, then add in the eggs one by one, and beat them until they blend in. then add in the vanilla along with ½ cup of water. Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and mix it well until it becomes smooth. Then fold in the chopped apple pieces.
- Put the batter into the pan and place in the oven. Bake for around 30 to 40 minutes or until when inserting a toothpick in the center of a cake it comes out clean.
- Once done allow the cakes to cool completely before serving.
