Snack Cakes Make Any Day Special
I’m all for fruits and veggies. I eat lots of them everyday, and I give them to my kids for snacks after school or when they get the between-meal munchies. Snacking can be an ideal way to boost your overall nutrition if you’re making healthy choices.
But what do you serve when you have friends stop by for tea? What can you make to celebrate the little victories of life; to turn the everyday into a special day?
For times like that, I sometimes turn to a snack cake; a delicious and quick cake that comes together easily. Once in a while you want something that’s a little bit of treat, but not as decadent as a layer cake with gooey frosting (those have their place, though!) and not as simple as apple slices. That’s when a snack cake fills the menu beautifully.
If you’re looking for a yummy treat that’s not over the top, give a snack cake a try!
