Given the amazing variety and numbers of cakes that appear at the end of our monthly rides, I thought it would be a fab idea to provide us all with somewhere to share recipes of your favourites!
I'll start with a muffin recipe that's easy to adapt and add whatever'sinthecupboard. Keep the wholemeal flour and seeds and its breakfast on the drive to the ride start point. Add chocolate chips and great with tea after the ride.
no bananas? chuck in some yoghurt. One of those activia style ones with a fruit layer works really well (and makes for a fruity muffin too).Recipe thanks to BBC good food here clicky
Right then - watcha got? Come on let's see your favourites!
what a brilliant idea :wub: they look yummy and I could eat one now with my cuppa tea :wub:
Thanks Lisa and yes they are yummy!
What this needs now is some more recipes - come on you lot - whatya got?
Found this online the other day and thought I'd share it as they turned out pretty good - there's room to vary the recipe up too which is good. More of an energy bar to keep you going though than a post ride cake!
"4 cups oats
4 cups cereal
1 cup each filler (nuts, raisins, chocolate chips, etc.)
2 cups sweetener/binding agent (corn syrup if you’re a cash-strapped bike racer, maple syrup if you live in New England, and agave nectar or brown rice syrup if you shop at Whole Foods)
1 ˝ cups peanut butter
salt to taste
Heat the sweetener and peanut butter over medium and combine the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the heated sweetener mix, pour into a large square pan, and let it cool.
I slice each batch up into 2-inch-by-2-inch squares, each of which delivers about 250 calories and 40 grams of carbs, a perfect dose of energy for 60 minutes on the bike."
Good man - thanks for posting!
sounds yummy - any recommendations on what cereal to use?
It doesn't say in the recipe, I used sultana bran which worked well
