It's the time of year when overwhelm can creep up on you. Those words are flying around in your head that "everything has to be done by Christmas (who knows why??!) and you're struggling to cope.

While you can eat it soon after baking, it goes to a whole new level if you leave the raspberry juice to soak in either overnight or earlier in the day. The cake goes "gooey" and denser once the fruit juice has soaked in.
Also good eaten on it's on with no fruit; maybe a dollop of coconut yogurt or get creative and add your own favourites on top. Perhaps boysenberries or black doris plums.

I've recently been working with a client who used to arrive home from work, so tired and wanting to flop on the couch with little energy or desire to prepare that nourishing meal. Feeling guilty about all the “have to dos” with little energy to do it. Not fun. I’m so proud of the work she's put in. She's dug deep and challenged her beliefs about saying no to every request at work when her own workload was already up around her ears.
