As we approach World Baking Day (May 17th 2023), we wanted to provide you with a pea-licious cake recipe that will be a hit among all your friends and family!
Adding in vegetables into your cake batter is becoming increasingly popular, to add more nutrition and moisture into your bake, and peas offer a great source of vitamins as well as being an affordable ingredient to have in the freezer!
That’s why we’ve created a reci-pea for a pea and vanilla cake that your friends and family will definitely want seconds (maybe even thirds!) of.
