So Easy - Healthy Honey Vanilla Pound Cake Recipe - Happy New Year!

I  love experimenting.  Cooking and baking are craft projects you get to eat at the end.  This mornings end of the year idea - Healthy Honey Vanilla pound cake.  Feel free to do your own experiments with different oils, flours and of course you could add chocolate chips or fruits to the batter as well.  Here's to a very sweet new year!

1 Cup organic spelt flour
3/4 Cup brown teff flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. sea salt

1/2 Cup raw honey (I used white which is very sweet.)
3 Tablespoons melted coconut oil (I use the Jarrow one with no smell or taste.)
1 or 2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs

Mix the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
Mix the wet ingredients in another bowl.
Add the mixed wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  (don't over mix)

Pour into mini loaf pans or one large loaf pan (I used little toaster oven pans but you could use what you have - make six individual servings or one loaf to slice.)
I like to clean up while baking - bake at 350 degrees Farienheight for about 30 minutes or until just brown on top.  Do not overbake or your cakes will be dry.

Use your imagination when serving.  You could top with fruit, fruit compote, butter for breakfast or a chocolate sauce and poached pears or fresh strawberries.  These are only a few of the things you could do - Let me know what you like best.
