Spelt Carrot Pineapple Coconut Walnut Cake

Desiree Carricondo-Timko


This cake is always center stage on looks and taste for morning or afternoon tea. It is the kind of cake to bring people together for quality time over a cup of tea or coffee. When i know some one has had a rough week, i make them this and we talk it out over a slice and a loving smile.
