Oh man, this week is hectic! I am trying to get some Christmas things lined up, including preparing for two holiday parties/gift exchanges tomorrow. Plus I've got birthdays thrown into the holiday mix, too!
It's been a little crazed. Mostly in a great way. The holidays are so fun, running errands at this time of year is fun - you know, minus draining your bank account and all the crowds (though *knock on wood* I've had really good luck avoiding crowds so far.) I should not be allowed to step foot into Trader Joe's this time of year...
But I am seriously happy that I carved out a little baking time last weekend because this amazing custard cake is getting me through the week. Hooray, having a quick breakfast or snack that I can eat cold, take on the run, microwave, or fix up for a nice moment of relaxation.
This morning I tried to run a grocery errand and go to Office Depot (to pick up some super exciting test prints of paintings I'm starting an Etsy shop with!!!!) before work. Which had me rushing back to my apartment to unpack groceries and get myself to work.
I cut a super sloppy slice of this cake with a spoon and threw it in a Ziploc bag. Grabbed a yogurt from my fridge and threw the cold cake on top of yogurt in a bowl once I got to work. It was amazing. Delicious and satisfying.
And even though it's called a cake, it's seriously guilt-free.
I wish I could claim this recipe as my own since it's so wonderful, but it is from Luminous Vegans, and it's crazy good. You may have seen the link on one of my recent Lotsa Links posts.
The only change I made is the dish I baked it in - I used a 9-inch long oval Le Creuset. I had to bake it for about a full hour instead of the 40 minutes in the recipe.
