Daddy and Ethan were gone on a moving-related trip for a few days this week and I had four sad little people around here. The downside of having a close family is that when someone is missing, it leaves a hole as big as a moon crater. Couple that with the fact that Mama is still down a good part of the time with morning sickness, and it made for a long week. One day for lunch, I cheered everyone up with this lovely little cake. Yeah, we totally turned to food for comfort. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
It's a very simple, egg white-based cake rolled around a strawberry and cream cheese filling. The best part? No sugar. I used xylitol and stevia because that's what I had on hand, and it met with the approval of even my pickiest eaters. We may or may not have eaten the entire thing in one sitting.
