Vegan Pineapple Date Coffee Cake
I feel like its been years since I last blogged!
It appears someone or something evil hacked into my website. Why oh why would someone do such a thing?!?!!
Apparently it was a GoDaddy/Wordpress thing and happened to A LOT of bloggers.
So… I need you to do me a favor…
If you get any sort of malicious website notice or security threat pop up window on my site, can you let me know?
While my site was being cleansed, I baked you all some cake and took some blurry pictures for you.
This isn’t just any old cake…
Its Vegan Pineapple Date Coffee Cake! (Yes… I know that’s a long name)
This cake has all the good stuff in it! Its got pineapple, its got dates, and has a gentle sprinkle of coconut on top.
One thing this cake doesn’t have….
Isn’t it strange that coffee cake doesn’t have any coffee in it?
It’s actually a cake that was made to be eaten with coffee.
I like to eat it with coffee, with tea, with milk, with water, or with no beverage at all 😉
This cake makes for the perfect healthy snack! I suggest you make it today!
