This cake is pretty much two of my favourite things combined. Lemon & Earl Grey tea – pure heaven. It kinda sucks that I’m in the midst of revision and summer deadlines and I don’t have any more cake to pull me through.
I wasn’t specifically planning on it – I’d made a malty vanilla ice cream to go with some rhubarb cake but also had cookie dough in the fridge (wooh for weekends!). Put that together and you get this treat and a half. I was tempted to make chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream sandwiches (#SoMeta) but I stopped myself.
The cool thing about studying nutrition is that it’s so applicable to daily life and helps me think about balancing the food I eat. For example the fact that eating fats along with the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E & K helps you absorb them better! So having fat in salad dressing is actually doing more than making things taste good, it’s improving the nutritional benefit of those veggies too.
