Healthy Cake Baking at Blackberry Cottage
Spinach brownies? Courgette cake? Whilst the idea of vegetables in cakes might be a bit foreign to many of us and downright unfair to kids (who often need tricking into eating veg), this enlightening and fascinating class at Blackberry Cottage is changing minds every day! The brainchild of head baker Kate, this award-winning workshop takes place in a picturesque Berkshire countryside setting, and begins with a friendly introduction to the concept and how these popular classes came to be. Guests will learn to use fresh, local vegetables as well as alternative flours such as gram and rice, to create delicious cakes with no added sugar or fats. Afterwards, each guest takes home their creation to prove it, along with an exclusive goodie bag!
