Artemis Cake Recipe


Artemis cake by peachpurple



Artemis Cake is a lot different from other birthday cakes.

It is a thick chocolate cake that tasted similar to brownies but more of the soft side.

This is my first attempt of making Artemis Cake, rather unusual ingredients I must say.


Lots of dark baking chocolates, 5 eggs ( normal cake requires 2-3 eggs )but it used the least flour  

which I did not expect of this awesome cake.


The icing sugar was sieved ontop of the Artemis Cake after it was baked as there isn’t any

decoration nuts ontop.

You could add in chopped walnuts or pecans if you like.


I love this chocolate cake, turned out fabulous, almost similar to brownies.

Care to have some?

Wholemeal Fruit Cake for Christmas Day



This coming Christmas, if you have the desire to bake a cake, perhaps to treat your caroling friends or just for a quiet Christmas celebration with your family, you could consider baking this Wholemeal Fruit Cake for a healthier choice.
This fruit cake is an excellent choice for those young teens who intends to lose weight, weight watchers and middle age adults since it consists of no fats at all ( no butter ), a little of sugar and high in fibre (dried fruits and bran cereal).
While most of the cake recipes have been created with reduced amount of fats such as butter or oil and sugar, they are still not really low in calories. Just that, these cake recipes are lower than the usual ones.
Wholemeal fruit cake is made without butter at all. The natural sweetness of the cake derived from the dried fruits and a little sugar which makes this cake suitable for weight watcher consumer.
I love the color of the mixed fruits sprinkle on the surface of the cake, simply colorful and moist cake to sink your teeth in.

Tips and Ingredients Substitute

If you have time, do soak the dried fruits overnight with bran cereal to help plump the fruits up, making the cake moist.

If you don’t have muscovado sugar, replace it with light brown sugar or icing sugar.

You can replace skimmed milk with low-fat fresh milk or powdered milk mix with warm water.
