1 lemon
1 piece ginger
2 teaspoons honey/sugar.

  • Cut lemon and ginger into thin slices.
  • Add to the hot water.
  • Steep for 5-10 minutes.
  • Strain and pour tea into mug.
  • Add honey, stir, and serve.

Note: it is healthier to rather wash the ginger thoroughly than to peel of its skin which is very high in gingerols. Oh, and don’t get rid of your lemon peels! You’ll need them later on.

5. Choco-Granola Cake

In the words of Marie Antoinette, “Let them eat cake!” Here’s an easy high fibred-cake to serve as an after show.

Ingredients:

200g of granola
3 cups chocolate flavoured milk
2 cups self-raising flour

Recipe:

  • Place granola in a bowl and pour over chocolate milk. Cover with cling film and place in the refrigerator for an hour.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line a 20cm round cake tin with baking paper and set aside. Sift self-raising flour over the soaked granola and stir the mixture until combined.
  • Pour mixture into lined tin and place in the oven for 2 1/2 hours.
  • Check the oven each hour to make sure that the top isn’t burning. If you think it will burn then make a cartouche (ring of baking paper) and place on top of the cake. Continue to cook until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Note: you can also use this recipe using all sorts of flavoured milk (from strawberry to vanilla or even banana). Topping your cake with caramel sauce will be *chef’s kiss*. Have fun with it.
