How To Make A Lemon Cake

Ever wondered how to make a lemon cake the healthy way, or even better, how to get a great taste out of a healthy meal. This is one of the many ways how it's done.







A healthy life is determined by a healthy diet, however most

healthy meals doesn't warrant the satisfying taste that it

deserves. A lemon cake is always a good way to make the

transition, here's how it is made.


Ingredients: 1 c vegan butter
2 c pure cane sugar
1 ½ tsp lemon extract (I use real lemon juice)
1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp sea salt
2 c carbonated water original (2 tsp baking powder)

2 3/4 c unbleached flour (or whole wheat or half and half)
1/4 c dry soy milk original (1 c Soy milk)


*If you're doing it the original way, use both original ingredients & vice versa.
Directions:

* Add carbonated water last.

If you use liquid milk with the carbonated water, the cake will not rise.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, combine margarine and sugar in a bowl and blend until nice

and smooth. In another bowl combine all of your dry ingredients together. Add your dry

ingredients to your wet ingredients, than add your lemon and vanilla extract and slowly add

your soy milk. Blend together until smooth. Bake for about 40 minutes or until your fork

comes out clean.

incorporated and set it aside. In another bowl put softened butter in it and with a hand mixer beat the butter until it is

creamy. Add sugars with the creamy butter and mix until they are creamy, then add your

vanilla and milk. Mix until smooth. Add wet ingredients to your dry ingredients and mix well. Once it is mixed add your vegan

HOW TO MAKE FLUFFY ALL-NATURAL WHIPPED SHEA BUTTER


RESULTS GUARANTEED... A PURE AND FAST WAY TO NATURALLY REVIVE YOUR SKIN AS WELL AS YOUR HAIR. THIS HAS BEEN PROVEN TO BE ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO OBTAIN 100% TREATMENT FROM NATURAL RESOURCES.


Ingredients:
  1. 1 cup raw unrefined ivory Shea butter
  2. ¼ cup organic extra virgin coconut oil 
  3. 1 tsp of avocado oil 
  4. 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  5. ½ tsp jojoba oil 
  6. ½ tbsp castor oil
  7. 7-10 drops of rosemary essential oil
  8. 7-10 of tangerine, vanilla, grapeuit essential oil (for scent, optional. Rosemary oil is actually very nicely scented on its own). 
Tip: If you do not have an electric mixer, you can whip the shea butter manually with a spoon or a hand mixer–but the key thing about this is that you must make sure that both the coconut oil and the Shea butter are at room temperature (ie. shea butter feels soft, coconut oil is somewhat melted) to make mixing everything easier.


Created by: Taiwo Kafilat (Nigerian)
It was time to make more of my homemade Shea butter mix. Whipped Shea butter is my number one staple product in keeping my thick, coarse hair very moisturized and I also use it to keep my skin super soft and supple. I’ve been asked quite a few times on here about what that mix consists of, so I finally got around to it and share it! I also decided to try the ivory Shea butter as opposed to the yellow variety this time. I have found that the ivory Shea butter is a lot less greasier than the yellow, and it is much, much less grainier. This was also my best Shea butter mix by far. The texture is smooth and creamy, with a thick consistency–like cake batter. I love it!
