    Maple syrup

    Primal Fuel
    It's my birthday today so my wife has made me my favourite cake. Coconut, butter, eggs and maple syrup.....mmmm and then just read this so I'll think I'll have another slice

    I like maple, in small amounts. It's easily overpowering for me. I've been thinking of making a home-made maple ice cream though.

    Happy Birthday!

    I love maple anything. I could drink maple syrup straight.

    Do you happen to have a recipe for that cake? =]

    Unfortunately my wife doesn't do measurements, she just throws everything in together and hopes for the best :-)

    More or less though it's 3 eggs, dessicated coconut and butter (about 250g I think). I don't think the amounts are that critical as there's no levitation going on. She beats the eggs and butter together, I suppose the amount of butter ultimately depends on how big a cake you want as the next step is to add the coconut until you get quite a thick consistency. I think she normally uses about 400g of coconut. You don't need much maple syrup, probably about two spoons worth. The result is a cake that isn't too sweet, is gloriously greasy with butter and as the wonderful taste of coconut with a hint of maple syrup in the background.

    I'll try to get some more precise measurements next time she makes it so watch this space...

    I consider it a "sensible indulgence" as Mark says... I don't think anything with that much sugar can really be called "primal." But I do feel a lot better about using local, pure maple syrup when I want something sweet, rather than white refined sugar.

    I make it and it's yum! (Well, it's more of a custard cause I put egg in it).

    I'm referring to maple syrup ice cream, by the way.
