Helloooooo, Everyone! It is time for a new recipe and product review! It has been too long, I know…
A few days ago, I received a package from the wonderful people at Xagave. Xagave is a brand of Agave Nectar. What is so special about this particular type of Agave Nectar, you ask? I’ll tell you! Xagave is a blend of 2 different kinds of Agave, White Agave (Agave Salmiana) and inulin from Blute Agave (Agave Tequilana).
I wasted no time in “gidget-izing” one of their lovely recipes. I took their Classic Pound Cake recipe, tweaked a few things, and ended up with a delightful cake to take to my Sister in-law’s 22nd birthday party! If you happen to come across Xagave, please give it a try. You will LOVE it! Speaking of “LOVE”, I can’t wait to try some more of the recipes featured in the Xagave cookbook, Delicious Meets Nutritious (available of their website)
Silk Nog Pound Cake
(Original recipe found in the Xagave cookbook, Delicious Meets Nutritious, Second Edition)
– 3/4 cup Brown Rice Flour
– 3/4 cup Soy Flour
– 1/4 cup Potato Starch
– 1/4 cup Tapioca Starch
– 1 1/4 teaspoons Baking Powder
– 1 teaspoon Xanthum Gum
– 3/4 teaspoon Salt
– 1 cup X-Agave
– 2 Eggs
– 2/3 cup Non-Dairy Margarine, softened
– 2/3 cup Silk Nog
– 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
– 1 teaspoon Almond Extract
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a blender combine the wet ingredients until smooth.
Add the dry ingredients, and process until combined.
Pour batter into a greased loaf pan.
Bake until done, about 70 minutes.
Allow to cool in the pan 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to continue cooling.
The resulting cake was delicious and moist, not overly sweet, and perfect for the occasion. It would be perfect with a little whipped cream OR homemade Silk Nog Ice Cream!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can not wait to try some more of the delicious recipes featured in Delicious Meets Nutritious. Thank you, Xagave, for the opportunity to try your wonderful product!
