Blue Dishcloths and Low Carb Pumkin Carrot Cake
Between Crochet , kniting and quilting I take time to make wonderful deserts. Today I finish two dishcloths, tell me what do you think about them. Do you like them? Do you like the ring , it will help you with the easy hanging after use?
This is a recipe I adapted from the internet and I will tell you it is delicious. High Calorie, but very nutritious. Remember you can make it low fat, but it will not be as filling. each slice can have anywhere from 250 to 500 Calories depending on how many slices you make and what ingridients you use. One thing is for sure, it will not throw your insuline off like a regular cake. I cut the cake in 8 slices, oh! and it freezes well. I say that because it has no preservatives and it will not last more than a week in the fridge without going bad. Thanks for stopping by.
