Strawberry Yogurt Cake

Yesterday, I celebrated my birthday with wonderful people and delicious food. This reminded me of how powerful a meal can be when spent with the right people. As part of my dietetic internship application, I wrote about food's role in bringing people together, bonding, and celebrating. Well, this recipe is meant to do just that. I strongly encourage you to share a slice of this Strawberry Yogurt Cake with someone you love.

1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
dash of salt
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 egg
1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
1 cup fresh berries
1/4 cup hemp seeds

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs. Add to flour mix.
4. Stir in olive oil, maple syrup, yogurt, berries, and seeds. Mix.
5. Pour into a greased cake pan.
6. Bake for 40 minutes.

I like a to smear a little bit of jam on top and serve with fresh berries for breakfast.
