Granola Balls

Compact and therefore neat to eat, these granola balls contain oats, oat bran, walnuts, ground almonds, a little buckwheat flour, one egg, coconut oil, cold tea, barley malt, sea-salt and spices. It doesn’t matter very much what you put in these, as long as they are oat-based and moist enough to hold together (a purely vegan version would omit the egg). Additions include dried pineapple bits, currants, coconut shreds, diced dates, muscovado sugar, sesame seeds and other nuts. I baked these granola balls at 350° F. The mixed ingredients are shaped with a cookie baller/Swedish meatballer.©M-J de Mesterton 2013Click Here to Read M-J’s Main Website, Elegant Survival

Angel-Food Cake with Strawberries and Cream

A slice of angel food cake is adorned with fresh strawberries and whipped cream applied with a pastry bag, for an easy-to-prepare, elegant dessert. This angel food cake was store-bought, as it is challenging to produce at home. Serve strawberries-and-cream on any sort of vanilla or white cake to create a brilliant ending to luncheon or dinner.
