1 tsp. almond extract
3/4 cup oil
2 cups dry sweetener
3 3/4 cups pastry flour
2 tsp. baking soda

3. Sift together dry ingredients. Add the dry to the wet batter. Mix well.
4. Split batter in half. Pour one half into two oiled cake pans, filling one side only.
5. Add the following ingredients to the remaining batter in the bowl. (If too thin, add more flour, if too thick, add more milk):

1/3 cup carob or cocoa powder
1/4 cup sweetener (add more sweetener if using cocoa powder)
1/4 cup tofu milk

6. Add the carob batter to the other side of each cake pan and gently swirl or “marblize”.

I made a cake for Holidays that I found here I wanted to comment on, it was labeled Pear Walnut Bundt Cake. It made an absoulute hit with my family.....but there is a catch to how it was put together. I mixed it up and had it backing, and sat down with a cup of hot coffee and was looking at the recipe and thinking how easy it was, other than a little extra time to pare and grate the pears, it was quick and made up beautifully, then suddenly the word vanilla hit me, I never added the vanilla! Too late now, 10 minutes into the baking. I didn't tell a sole, I was so worried they wouldn't like it. From the youngest to the oldest, they loved it and I did too. They all wanted a copy of the recipe.

So folks, if you have that recipe, next time try it without the vanilla, my family gave it a 5 star rateing! (And I did make it with Veggie oil, not butter, as the recipe noted you could use butter if you were not vegan)

the ingredient labels should be enough to put anyone off

Very good one :) Thank you :)

I hate going to the doctor and dentist, but I take the time before they come into the room by laying…

If it's natural, & it works, that's a real win win.
