|Petit Pois Cakes - Lemon & Courgette - Photograher Beatriz Da Costa|
Harry Eastwood, star of Channel 4’s ‘Cook Yourself Thin’, together with American entrepreneur Ashley Maddox has launch Petit Pois, a range of mouth-watering cakes made using vegetables instead of butter and some of the sugar.
Using all natural ingredients of the highest quality – free range eggs, 70% cocoa chocolate, real vanilla bean and unwaxed citrus fruit – in four flavours: Vanilla, Chocolate, Lemon and Orange. Each cake has just the thinnest layer of icing and is topped with a cute little green marzipan pea.
You could never guess that Petit Pois cakes are full of pumpkin, courgette or beetroot. Even more so, no-one would know that there’s more grated vegetable in Petit Pois cakes than any other single ingredient.
So how is this possible? It’s the presence of the secret vegetables that also give Petit Pois cakes the extended shelf life – unlike butter that stiffens as it sits, the vegetables continue to moisturise and sweeten the cakes days after being made. Petit Pois are the only cakes on the market that actually improve as they sit on the shelf, and the only range that is completely gluten-free, lactose-free, and blessed with less than half the calories of normal cupcakes.
