Ten Healthy Cakes for Ten Years of Southern Cross Fitness
This year is a big year for Southern Cross Fitness—we entered double digits! That’s right, Australia’s favourite home gym specialists turned ten in May! And we all know what birthdays mean—cake!
Cooking of any kind is no easy task, but it’s especially challenging when it comes to baking for a fitness store. Any get-together is bound to have at least one restriction. So in our best efforts to cater to the trickiest tastebuds, bellies and bodies, we’ve put together this list of 10 healthy cake varieties!
What more could we want in a cake? It’s vegan, looks great and even has a vegetable! That automatically qualifies it as a fab option for fitness birthday festivities.
This cake is egg-free, dairy-free and nut-free—could there be a more inclusive cake? This cake is free of major allergens, so we can spend less time baking different cakes and more time celebrating.
Fudgey chocolate cake that’s gluten-free? Amazing! Gluten intolerances are something to consider when deciding on a cake. But, the real skill is finding one that doesn’t compromise on flavour or texture—this recipe, though, is a top candidate!
Chocolate cake is a classic for baking and a favourite here at Southern Cross Fitness! We also love to sneak in extra fruit and veg when we can, which is why this one is a great option when modifying a classic.
If you’re concerned about high-fat food content, this low-fat vanilla cake is a great option! And this cake is made using ingredients sitting in most kitchen cupboards. Who says cake has to be for birthdays only?
Made with fresh ingredients, these cupcakes are great as a low-calorie cake option—no, it’s not just because they are small. Cupcakes are the ultimate low-fuss cake option. No need to worry about who packed the knife for cake cutting when they are already portioned!
This may seem like an odd choice but hear us out! Spinach has a mild flavour that is cancelled out by the vanilla—it’s essentially nature’s food colouring. Hidden veggies are a great addition to any food, even cake, and we love green here at Southern Cross Fitness. So it’s a win-win.
A quick cake is a good cake, and what is faster than something that just needs to be put in the microwave? This cake is indulgent, low fat, chocolatey and able to be ready to eat in just a few short minutes.
Coffee and chocolate are a great combination, and the frosting-to-cake ratio is unmatched. But this cake is also diabetic friendly; what more could we want?
An unlikely trio, mandarin, pistachio and yoghurt, come together to make a flourless cake that isn’t chocolate! This is great when catering to people that aren’t the biggest fans of chocolate if they exist. No, really, do they?
There we have it, ten cake recipes for various dietary needs. We are ready to trade our sneakers for chef’s hats and get baking.
