I knew this would be the reaction I would get!

While in the kitchen this morning one daughter came in and asked, "What's for breakfast mom?" At the time another daughter and I were mixing up a chocolate cake so I answered, "chocolate cake."

The response was one I knew I would get -- WHAT? CHOCOLATE CAKE FOR BREAKFAST?

Sure, why not? It's made of 100% spelt presoaked overnight in buttermilk, sweetened with rapadura, wholesome eggs, vanilla, baking soda, pure cocoa, and salt. Just like a pancake, right?

Daughter says - Yea, but still, plain chocolate cake?

I mixed up a bowl of whipping cream earlier if you want some of that on it OR you could have what I'm having which is -
this

turned into this.

After a peek into the blender she quickly chose the cake with cream! But in reality they had 7 grain cereal and the cake was saved for later!


The shake was made of 1 cup frozen organic strawberries, 1 cup homemade buttermilk, 1 T. chia seeds, 1/2 cup soaked 7 grain cereal, and 1/8 cup maple syrup

Cake was made from - soaking 3 cups spelt in 2 cups buttermilk overnight. Next day add to flour mixture 2 cups all natural sugar, 2 eggs, 1 cup butter, 1 teas. salt, 2 teas. baking soda and just over 1/2 cup cocoa or more if you like it stronger. Bake in 350 oven for 35 minutes.

Whipping cream - 1 pint cream - preferably organic or from milk, 3 T. raw natural sugar and 2 teas. vanilla. Mix until whipped and serve.

That's one interesting smoothie you have there. Was it tasty at all. Sorry, I had to ask!

I am going to try that smoothie recipe. I have never put any grain into mine before. Sounds interesting!

Yes Jennifer, it is tasty. I think it is the maple syrup that makes this easy to pull off!

Hey Stephanie. I love taking in my grains this way. I truthfully just do not like them! In this way I can get them in my diet without much effort. I don't even know it's in there! And since I soak my grains overnight in water and buttermilk then in a sense they are already 'cooked.' Because the soaking takes the place of the long cooking time.
