Bowen Therapy,

Oops not much time this morning, have an early appointment with my diabetic foot nurse. So few appointments this week I am getting lazy. Yesterday I went to Let It Heal, a place I have raved about before where they practice Bowen Therapy invented in Australia. A marvellous treatment and I felt great once I had been there. Let it Heal have a website and now a programme, see where Amber Korobkina talks on health and pain issues. Yesterday on Good Morning America I saw a Key Lime Cake which I had never heard of before, here is the recipe, it looked good. This picture is not from GMA unfortunately, they didn't have one, but on TV it appeared to be delicious and Robin was certainly enthusiastic. Key Lime Cake
Trisha Yearwood
CAKE 1 3-ounce package lime-flavored gelatin 1¹/3 cups granulated sugar 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour ½ teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 5 large eggs, slightly beaten 1½ cups vegetable oil ¾ cup orange juice 1 tablespoon lemon juice ½ teaspoon vanilla extract ½ cup Key lime juice (from about 25 small Key limes or 4 large regular limes) ½ cup confectioners' sugar CREAM CHEESE ICING ½ cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, room temperature 1 1-pound box confectioners' sugar Cooking Directions Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour three 9-inch round cake pans. In a large mixing bowl, mix the gelatin, sugar, flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir to mix well. Add the eggs, oil, orange juice, lemon juice, and vanilla. Divide the batter evenly among the 3 pans and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Test for doneness by lightly touching the tops of the layers or inserting a toothpick. Cool the layers in the pans for 5 minutes, then turn them out onto racks. While the layers are still hot, mix the lime juice and confectioners' sugar and pour it over the layers on the racks. You can pierce the layers with a fork to allow the glaze to soak in better. Allow the layers to cool completely as you prepare the icing. Cream the butter and cream cheese. Beat in the confectioners' sugar until the mixture is smooth and easy to spread. Spread the icing between the layers and on the top and sides of the cake. The cream cheese icing is optional. This cake is beautiful and tastes great with just the glaze poured over it. Key limes can be hard to find. Substitute regular lime juice for key lime juice without sacrificing flavor. FROM BETH: This is a very moist cake. It can also be baked in a 9 x 12 x 2-inch pan to be easily served in squares. FROM GWEN: This recipe comes from family friend Angela Spivey. She uses whichever variety of lime is available in the local grocery. Serves 12 Have a great day
