Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

Midsummer cake recipe

This cake tasted amazing, however i didnt mix the eggs right, so the cake didnt become fluffy and rise. But it didnt matter so much because it tasted good anyway :)

^My cake, My picture. Not my recipe :)

cake base
75g butter
2 eggs
100ml milk
2 1/2 dl sugar
1/2 tablespoon cardamom seeds
1 tsp vanilla powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3 dl flour

1 Grease and Flour a form of about two liters.
2 Beat sugar and eggs until fluffy, preferably with an electric whisk or food processor.
3 Melt the butter, then stir in the milk.
-> Grind cardamom seeds in a mortar.
4 Mix flour, cardamom, vanilla and baking powder thoroughly in a bowl.
5 Mix the egg and sugar mixture with butter and milk mixture.
6 Add the dry goods and mix smoothly.
7 Spread batter evenly in pan and bake at 200 degrees about 30 minutes. Feel with a stick on the cake is firm in the middle.
8 Turn out and let the cake cool on a rack.

Filling & Garnish
500mml whipping cream
3  bananas
500 g fresh strawberries

1 cut sponge cake into three layers. Add the pieces apart with parchment paper in between so they are easy to deal with.
2 Whip the cream until good consistency. Super to use the food processor, make up just so the cream does not whip too hard!
3  mashed strawberries about 7-10 pieces (depending on size). Spread on the bottom layer. Do not pour away the juice that comes when you mash, it makes the cake super juicy! Just make sure it is evenly spread. Then the middle layer.
4 Mash the bananas coarsely with a fork and mix with 1-2 tablespoons of whipped cream. Spread on middle layer.
5 Place on the top layer and then dress the cake completely in cream.
6 Halve all the remaining strawberries and start decorating! Wide side down and top up, looks a bit like an artichoke when clearly ;) preferable to let the cake stand swallowed a party hours before serving so the flavors have time to settle.
