We celebrated Mother's Day on Saturday at The Gruene Door. It's a pretty little restaurant located in Gruene Lake Village less than 10 minutes from Gruene. We had a full table with my parents, Preston and myself, Sister, her husband and Baby O, my uncle and my grandmother. The staff was SUPER accommodating to all of our needs and the food was delicious!
So after my cupcake indulgence I promptly passed out on the way home. Typical me.
What was NOT typical was that we got home around 3:45 and settled down on the couch and BOTH of us fell asleep. Until 7:05.
I'm so embarrassed. Sigh.
Sunday, however was extremely productive. My productivity included this super yummy Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake from A Spicy Perspective. I found this recipe on Pinterest several months ago and kept putting it off because there weren't any fresh strawberries. But now there are!!! YAY!! I added apple sauce instead of eggs and I think it messed with my cake. Meh. So if you're going to make it use the original recipe.
Here are my pictures though because they turned out so pretty. I love strawberries and how they are so colorful.
This is what happened. My cake turned out thick. SUPER heavy. Not sure what happened. Preston says it tastes fine but I think it could have been better. I read online that you can substitute 1/4 cup of applesauce for every egg. So I did. Then I read later that it's 1 TABLESPOON per egg. Sigh. Too much applesauce apparently equals a heavy, dense cake. Oh well. What I'm learning my friends is that all of this "vegan baking" stuff is going to be trial and error sometimes. This time I was lucky enough that it was edible. HA!!
I leave you with one more picture. At least it LOOKS delicious.
Hugs & kisses!!!
