What's this all about?
We love whole grains! We have found that we prefer their flavor. They are also far healthier than the refined foods which characterize the typical modern diet.
Switching to whole grains helps maintain a low glycemic diet. That means you will have more sustainable energy levels throughout the day, and probably fewer problems with weight control.
We created this website with one goal: to build an online community of like-minded people who either share our enthusiasm about whole grains or just want to learn more about them.

One of the things I love about this recipe is you can make it a day ahead and it's still wonderfully moist. You could even argue it's better on the second day. I've made this recipe numerous times trying to perfect it and I love how the final has turned out.
It's not overly sweet, which is typical of my cakes. Instead the extra sweetness, for the person with a sweet tooth, comes from the caramel you put on top. The caramel icing is so good. It's hard to not eat it all before putting it on the cake! The thicker the icing is the harder is will be when it cools. I prefer to thin it with some cream after making it and then pouring it on individuals slices of cake.
The pictures at the top of the page show how I both poured a thinner icing and spread a thicker icing. No matter how you do it or like it, I'd recommend not put the icing on the cake until you serve it. If you want to make a layered cake with this recipe, you certainly can, simply double it. However if you do this, the icing works better to use between the layers and on top, but not on the sides. I actually prefer my layered cakes without icing on their sides, otherwise I think the cake gets too sweet and I feel like I'm primarily eating icing instead of my favorite part, the cake.
