When the boyfriend and I first started watching Game of Thrones, the show was already in its third season, so last year, we spent a good couple of weekends doing nothing but watch Game of Thrones in our pajamas, while eating pasta and salad. Those days were so awesome we decided to do it again when the 4th season came out. The wait was long and gruesome, but we made it through and had our marathon yesterday (sans pasta and salad because the boyfriend left it at his place).
Maybe I was hungry, but watching season 4 made me a little hungry. All the talk of pigeon pie and LEMON CAKES made me want to run into the kitchen to do some baking! Initially, I had my heart set on baking some of Sansa’s favorite, lemon cakes, but most of the recipes require coconut oil, something I can’t tolerate very well, so right now I am still on the hunt for the perfect recipe. For now, I will have to bake something else: Honey cakes!
Although it’s not the same as lemon cakes, honey cakes still sound like something they might eat in Game of Thrones… or maybe even Harry Potter right? Oh well, who cares, I have my heart set on making some sweet cakes 🙂
To make, all you will need is some: almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, honey, olive oil, eggs and almond milk. Pretty simple right?
The results? GOOD!
To be honest, I was a bit apprehensive about adding the EVOO, especially after the disastrous batch of cheese puffs *shudders*, but much to my surprise, these tasted pretty good! I was just doing a quick taste test but I ended up eating a cake, and I’m tempted to eat another one, but I will resist!
Happy Baking! 🙂
