I was recently sent a sugar replacement product called Xagave as well as a cookbook and I was excited to try some recipes. I love that the Xagave is all natural without a bunch of chemicals. It has a very delicious sweet taste and absolutely no after taste. The kids and I found a recipe for a lemon cake bread that sounded really tasty and fun to make. We adapted the recipe a bit by adding some lemon juice, lemon extract and poppy seeds – the cake turned out very moist and delicious. I loved the lemony flavor of this bread and the tiny crunch from the poppy seeds – it was a huge hit with the entire family. I am very impressed with Xagave and look forward to making more recipes using it.Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Bread: Recipe and photo by For the Love of Cooking.net Adapted recipe from Delicious Meets Nutritious – Xagave
