Birthday Cake!

My friend's birthday was this week so I baked her this Peanut Butter cake. You can't really even call it "cake" because it is pretty darn healthy.

2 cups spelt flour
Pinch of salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups apple juice concentrate*
1/2 cup almond milk (or soymilk, or cow's milk)
1/2 cup natural peanut butter

1/4 cup carob (or chocolate) chips
1/4 cup chopped peanuts

Mix all dry ingredients. Mix all wet ingredients. Combine wet and dry ingredients. Poor into an 8"x8" oiled baking pan. Sprinkle the cake with the chips and nuts (or you could ice the cake when it has finished baking and has cooled). Bake at 350F for one hour. Let sit 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy.

*Apple juice concentrate is sold in the frozen juice section of grocery stores. One can of frozen apple juice concentrate is equivalent to 1 1/2 cups. Let the juice thaw to room temperature before using.
