Vanilla & Cinnamon Sweet Potato Cake

The perfect festive treat to put you in that holiday mood - a delicious Vanilla & Cinnamon Sweet Potato Cake!

This recipe is by the beautiful vegan blogger, Amanda from Sweden.

Cinnamon isn't just a flavour of the festive season - it's actually a mighty food that's been researched for its wonderful benefits, such as balancing hormones, helping with weight loss around the waist, clearing red and angry breakouts and even clearing yeast and bacteria overgrowth.

OVER TO YOU, AMANDA!

Thanks Organic Burst for the high quality ceylon cinnamon powder that made this cake taste kind of like Christmas – I am already preparing. Cinnamon is my one go to spice in almost everything. It's not only delicious but got amazing benefits too:⁠

  • Supports a healthy heart⁠

  • Healthy immune system⁠
  • Regulates blood sugar⁠
