Jenny and Minoo teamed up to make two different types of cakes in the Caring Place Community Kitchen. Jenny is a new addition to this community kitchen.
We learned that Jenny is strong believer of organic food. She is very health conscious and try to avoid processed food as much as possible.
So, what is organic food? Organic food is food that is produced without the usage of pesticides, artificial fertilizers or sewage sludge or genetically modified. Organic food is food that is processed without adding food additives or ionizing radiation. As for the animals, organic means the animals were reared without the usage of antibiotics or growth hormones. In layman term, organic food is food that is grow naturally without human intervention.
Jenny shared with us a Blueberry Cake. She used frozen organic blueberries. During the blueberry season in summer, Jenny bought 100 pounds of organic blueberries and freeze them for her consumption for the rest of the year until the next season. Jenny told us she makes blueberries smoothies every morning for her breakfast.
Jenny baked her Blueberry Cake in a heart shape pan in view of the coming of Valentine’s Day. I had so many posts lining up that I had to post this after Valentine’s Day.
The warm blueberries nestled in a light. lemony cake make this cake the perfect fianle for any meal. It is excellent for coffee time or snacking too.
