    Cinnamon and easy? I’m in!

  2. Simply Life

    1. I voted
    2. You just reminded me how much I love the book “everything is illuminated”
    3. I got really excited because I won a giveaway on another blog! 🙂

    Three ingredients? It couldn’t get any easier. Although admittedly I did think you had tricked us when you listed five. lol.

    And yes, the extraordinary proportions of jockeys have always intrigued me too.

    Wow those look delicious!! And I’ve never heard of your favorite recent books… I’m such a lit nerd, I’m going to have to look those up! 🙂

    Three thoughts I’ve had today about pants (in the American sense):

    1. My checkered work pants are vastly superior to my other work pants.
    2. My new favorite jeans might get demoted because they’ve stretched, which makes me sad.
    3. I love wearing pants that feel like pajamas.

    1. Rain in the rain – for an hour and a half 🙁
    2. Watched my work colleagues have a ‘horse race’ down the coridoor!
    3. Ate icecream – for what better way to end the day!

    What sort of witchcraft is this – only three ingredients?? I can’t believe it resulted in a cake, and a delicious one at that!

    I’ll do this for yesterday, seeing as that’s when you posted it, and because I’ve done..uhh.. not very much so far today..haha

    1) Took part in a Melbourne Cup ‘people-race’, in the bushland around work. Horribly muddy and slippery and steep and rocky, but good fun. I beat my estimated time, and beat a very particular co-worker who I’m not hugely fond of, so I was pretty stoked hahaha.
    2) Felt very happy to finally feel like I have work friends. I was telling them I’d been craving a Macca’s Happy Meal, so we’ve organised a lunchtime road trip to the drive thru on Friday. hahah silly, but it’s nice when you get to that point with colleagues where you can actually arrange to spend time together outside mandatory work hours.
    3) Came home, had a bath, ate a great dinner of some of my favourite things (Silo bread, an assortment of pickles, cheeses, brocolli and bacon), followed by a delightful ice cream sundae (Serendipity hokey pokey ice cream, Reese’s chocolate topping, candy corn, crushed up pretzels, and a liberal sprinkling of sea salt!), then read Harry Potter in bed. Perfect evening at home 🙂

    I love how the magical three ingredients cake counts as two point on your list of things eaten today. Some how this doesnt fit in with my way of life, I’d only count it as one, that way I’d get less calories in me….dont ask how…just accept it!

  10. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    I love the number 3! This cakes looks magical indeed. I love that you also ate some peas.
    1. Spent 1 hour on the phone to some referrals – what is interesting is that I didn’t go insane during said hour.
    2. I cannot actually decide what to have for lunch – this never happens to me
    3. my man is insisting we go to yoga tonight – random, love it!

  11. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Oh my god, I was in love with this from the first pic. And it’s SO almost-raw-vegan…just those pesky egg whites! 😛 But you know what? After our experimentation with Irish moss this week in that garlic bread (which, “flour”-wise, is also predominantly almond meal) makes me think that it could work in this. If only 105 let us use the kitchen to experiment on our own stuff! >:-O

  12. Anna Johnston

    1. Spent an hour on the phone to tech support…, but we won… by gad we won.
    2. Washed my hair & have now straightened it.
    3. All dressed up and ready to hit the shops

    Jockies!! Very weird looking people indeed 😉

  13. Vaala ◪

    Ooo, Everything Is Illuminated and Part Of Your World!!!! Love it! Have you read his other book with the name I can’t remember (not Eating Animals but his second fiction work)?

    Anyway, 3 things…hmmmm. Since most of today has been at work, how about the 3 most interesting things to happen at work today?
    1. My boss asked me to get some music off his iPod and it crashed my computer which caused me to lose some other data that I had been working on but hadn’t saved in the last 5 minutes (and you can do a lot in 5 minutes damn it).
    2. Some girl tried to sell us strawberries but my boss shut the door in her face.
    3. My boss called me a sinner. Excellent!

    Three thoughts upon reading this post:

    1. I want to read the book thief – in fact I just want more time to read
    2. more chocolate in the cake would be excellent – it would go so well with all that maple syrup and almonds
    3. jockeys not only look strange but sound strange and never so strange as when they have a French accent

  15. Jess

    1. I took photos of a “virgin’s breast” then cut a bit off and ate it. Not a fan.
    2. I listened to a podcast containing the phrase “I could eat a knob at night” and a dance track remix featuring the lyrics “I could eat a knob at night”.
    3. My participant threw up. But I was prepared and had an airline sickness bag, medical latex gloves, and a biohazard disposal bag to go in the clinical waste bin for incineration.

    All trufax.

      Ok now I’ve gone back and read other people’s comments, I feel like my life is somewhat more insane and bizarre than average…

    ‘Who’s a good girl? You’re a good girl! Yes you are! Yes you are! Who’s a good girl?
    Stupid poo-bum head’ are the two sentences I say every single day.

    Love this recipe even though …..sssh don’t tell anybody….there’s no chocolate in it!

  17. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    1. “Yaaaaarrrrrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhhh!”
    2. Opened a large bottle of soda water after arriving back at my desk after purchasing said bottle, having walked through the 37 degree day to do so, and finding myself quite thirsty thought I’d reward myself with a drink only to completely saturate myself and everything on my desk with an almighty spray of carbonated water.
    3. Wish there was someone else in my office at the time to witness this.

  18. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    LOL so who did you say that second thing to (about stupid poo bum head) 😛 And yes I don’t really see the attraction with jockeys. And they all kind of have a similar look!

  19. Lauren

    Wow — this is really upsetting, but I don’t think I’ve even said three things outloud today. I left for work at 6:42 a.m. for work. Pushed into crowded metro. Got to work at 8:50. Sat in my cubicle, which is located in my office’s equivalent of Siberia. Now it is 11:15 a.m., and I haven’t had to talk to a soul.

    Actually, I may have said three things, but only to cats.

    1. “Look at how cute you are!”
    2. “Do you want to eat? Here, let me lift you.”
    3. “Bye kitties! See you in the afternoon!”

    Aw man. Better talk to a co-worker soon.

  20. Alisa Cooks

    My husband can’t have almonds or egg whites, but I am going to figure out how to make a version of this very soon!

  21. Agnes

    You ate PEAS?! You should’ve saved the stomach space (and your tastebuds) and filled it with more almond maple cake instead!

  22. Sarah@Gluten-free tries Vegan

    Love it! This post, that is. Big fan of Into the Woods. It’s one of my all time fave musicals. Stephen Sondheim is a musical genius, for sure. Also love the look of the 3-ingredient cake! Going to have to give it a whirl.

    Thanks for your kind and encouraging comment on my last blog post xxx

    I have no idea how I missed this post (to be fair, you are prolific) that cake sounds amahzing! And so does your parents’ pantry 🙂 and your dog is adorable.

  24. Lemon Rosewater Almond Granola, The Sinking Boat - Wayfaring Chocolate

    […] I found the recipe on Anja’s Food 4 Thought and, though I did have my doubts about the ratio of liquid to oats as I stirred it together, I decided to trust in the woman who brought me (and you) the magnificent magical flourless three-ingredient maple almond cake. […]

  25. Thai-Style Fish Pie with Coconut Mash - Wayfaring Chocolate

    […] of that Thai-Style Fish Pie with Coconut Mash, because I’m a nincompoop. For dessert, I made this Magical Flourless Three Ingredient Almond Cake (baked for 25 minutes). Dusted with icing sugar, it was also […]

  26. Mini Chai Meringues - Wayfaring Chocolate

    […] beyond my own budgetary allowance. It was my parents’ pantry, you see, that enabled me to make my magical three ingredient maple almond cake (using pricey real maple syrup and almond meal), and their big stand mixer that allowed me to make […]

    For a baking pan idea: Double the recipe and use a 9×9 pan. Twice the goodness. I will try this recipe tomorrow. I’m new to your blog and loving it.

  28. Sharon

    Made this tonight. Delish. My husband added strawberries but sautéed apples would be great too.
