Peaches and knitting
This peach streusel cake is delicious. I was given the recipe years ago by someone I met through La Leche League. She brought a plum streusel cake to a potluck and I have since found that it's great whatever fruit you put on it.
Here's the recipe for an 8 x 8 inch square pan - double it for a 9 x 13 inch
quarter cup oil (not olive, something lightly flavoured)
half cup sweetener (maybe turbinado sugar or Sucanat or maple syrup, but please not regular sugar)
2 tablespoons soyflour mixed with quarter cup water (this is a vegan egg substitute)
one and a half cups flour (wholewheat or other whole grain - I used kamut )
2 teaspoons baking powder
half cup soymilk (or other kind of milk)
2 cups halved prune plums or sliced peaches or pitted cherries
quarter cup sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix batter ingredients together, pour into baking pan. You don't want your mixture too runny because it has to hold up the fruit. Top with fruit of your choice, sprinkle with the topping. Bake 35 - 45 minutes at 350 F.
This is what I made with the rest of the Bamboozle. Just enough was left over from making the Fetching fingerless mitts. Took me a couple of hours this afternoon while listening to Tick Tock, a Dean Koontz novel on tape.
