Menopause Cake


This recipe is known in the UK as the Menopause Cake. It is loaded with
healthy nutritious ingredients, many of which are known to alleviate menopausal
symptoms. Ideally one slice a day should be eaten. It is also Low GI! It is delicious
spread with low fat butter spread but equally good on its own. Men can eat this too, just
change what you call it.
