19.4.14

let's celebrate.. gluten free/sugar free/nut free lemon poppyseed "muffins"!

There in the ground, His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain


Then bursting forth in glorious Day,
Up from the grave He rose again!


And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine -
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

 I believe that He hung on the cross to save us. We celebrate birthdays, presidents, mothers and fathers, and success in our lives. Don't you think that we should celebrate Jesus raising from the dead? Yep, me too. I don't know about you, but I think that every good celebration deserves cake of some sort! Actually, multiple cakes would be fantastic! Let's all just gather around and feast.

This day, however, isn't just any celebration. On Jesus's special celebration day, we need a cake fit for a King. If I were a king, I would want to eat cake for breakfast. Wouldn't you? 


That's why I decided to call this cake a "muffin". This "muffin" walks the line with it's sweet and creamy frosting.. Normal muffins don't have that kind of stuff but, remember, we aren't about doing anything "normal" on Jesus's special day! 

Jesus included everyone in His celebrations. I thought I would too. Gluten free, sugar free, nut free, I welcome you all to the cake feast! Make these tonight, store them in the fridge, and thank Jesus for a reason to eat cake for breakfast when tomorrow rolls around!
