Dark Jamaican Ginger Cake

Hey guys, Jamaican ginger cake is one of my favourite cakes aside from chocolate 😋 I found this recipe online and I just had to bake it and share it with you guys. There’s a lot of sugar in the recipe from the soft dark sugar, golden syrup and treacle but it doesn’t taste overly sweet. It was also really runny so I did wonder how the gingerbread would turn out and here is the result…

Makes: 1 loaf tin

Ingredients 

175g plain flour, sifted
1 tbsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
2 tbsp milk or milk alternative
75g black treacle
75g golden syrup
75g dark brown soft sugar
75g butter
1 egg

Method

1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4 and line a loaf tin with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl mix, sift the flour and spices then separately mix the bicarbonate soda with milk and set aside.

3. Then, into a saucepan measure the treacle, syrup, sugar and butter with 75ml of water. Heat gently until everything is thoroughly melted. 

4. Next add the syrup mixture to the flour and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until smooth. Beat in the egg and add the bicarbonate soda and milk. 

5. Mix well and pour into the prepared baking tin, place in the oven and bake for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes before taking out.

Paprika Chicken

Hello guys, so my other super healthy, nutritious meal is my paprika chicken. There’s such a range of ingredients in the meal and I just love how colourful it is!! Also a great meal for Sunday.

Serves 2 

Ingredients 
1 Chicken breast and thigh, remove the skin
1 1/2 tsp paprika
1 tbsp tomato passata
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 tbsp olive oil
3 garlic clove, crushed
1/4 onion, diced
100g red cabbage, thinly sliced
30g sweetcorn
100g couscous
15g parsley

Method 

1. In a large bowl mix the paprika, paydays, puree and oil with the crushed garlic. Add the chicken breast and thigh to the bowl mixing well (add and salt and pepper), then leave to marinate at least 1 hour before cooking.

2. Prepare all of the vegetables and roughly chopped the parsley. Place the chicken on a tray and cook in the oven for 35-45 minutes, until cooked right through and slightly golden.

3. Heat oil in a pan and cook for 5 minutes until soft then add the cabbage, cook for 8 minutes but still should be crunchy. Also add the sweetcorn.

4. Put the couscous in a heat proof bowl and add boiling water, leave until all the liquid is absorbed and stir in the parsley.

5. Finally, the chicken should be cooked, place each piece on a separate plate and half the cabbage onto each plate along with the couscous!!

Enjoy 😊

1. Where is you Your Hearts guiding you?

2. What do you want to say that others have left unspoken?

3. Are there any skills or talents that you will not utilising? 

4. What concerns are you willing to release?

5. Have you focused on how you look rather than how you feel?

6. Have you been worrying too much about what others think of you?

    Turmeric Face Mask

    Hello again ☺ I’m not 100% sure if I’ve posted a turmeric face mask recipe before I just thought it is so relevant now that the weather is getting warmer. Nobody wants dull, lifeless looking skin and this face mask will give you the opposite: bright, glowing skin!! I know it is traditional for many cultures and it’s one of my favourites because it is homemade and the ingredients are so easy to purchase.

    Ingredients 
    1 tbsp turmeric
    1 tsp plain flour
    1/3 tsp bicarbonate soda
    2 tbsp lemon juice or water

    So you literally mix all the ingredients together into a bowl. Should be a nice, smooth, runny consistency. Use a small brush to apply it to your face and leave to dry. After about 15-20 minutes wash off with warm water, pat dry and then rub oil over your face.

    1st Love Lula Beauty Box

    I’ve always wanted to subscribe to a beauty box and of course I wanted it to be organic. I was super happy when I found Love Lula check them out here: https://www.lovelula.com 

    Love Lula sell a range of items on their website from shampoo, makeup to body products there’s so much to choose from. The subscription box I chose was for 3 months and cost £37.50 which I thought was a little expensive at first but the products I received were definitely worth it. The box came around the 2nd week of the month and I was so excited to see what I got. I was quite pleased that there was no makeup in there even though it is a beauty box beauty is much more than just makeup also I don’t really wear that much. 

    There was between 4-5 products in each box, some were full sized and most were sample sized but not too small. Each box came with a discount code off the products in the box. So I’ve tried to find the prices of each product too if you want to see roughly how much the box equates to.

    Here goes my first Love Lula beauty box…
