Most people would say, “There’s always room for desserts!” But not me. I don’t have a sweet tooth. I usually don’t even save room for desserts! I know, CRAZY RIGHT?! I prefer my savoury stuff. What I’m really trying to say is, I’m not much of a baker because it takes up so much time and once you screw up, you have to start all over again. Whereas cooking, I can always adjust the flavours if it tastes bad initially. Anyways, I’d still bake and make desserts occasionally for my friends. And when I do bake, I try to make it as healthy as possible (meaning less sugar).

This Vegan Strawberry Cake is as healthy as a cake can get! And so delicious, even for someone who doesn’t have a sweet tooth! I got my recipe inspiration from allrecipes.
