I found a recipe for an acorn squash streusel cake and had very little of the ingredients on hand, so I used it as a base recipe–but changed it so much that it became an original. It is rich and flavorful, so a small piece is enough. It has a heavy texture that is nice. Let cool or eat warm with a cup of coffee.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
Whisk white wheat flour, baking soda, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl. Beat 1/2 cup brown sugar, honey, and 1/4 cup butter together in another bowl with an electric mixer until creamy; beat in egg. Add sweet potato and vanilla extract to butter mixture and beat until smooth.
Stir flour mixture into sweet potato mixture until batter is evenly moistened and smooth. Pour batter into prepared baking dish.
Mix all-purpose flour, 1/3 cup brown sugar, rolled oats, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon together in a bowl until combined. Sprinkle oats mixture over batter.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

Eating healthy breakfast to start the day had become a good habit. It’s a fabolous way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the fruit wakes me up and gives me energy to take on the morning. The sweetness is often vilified as the root of all disease, but fruit is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your digestive system and helps keep you feel full longer, and less likely grab a side food out of the street food before break .
Making fruit a morning habit is easy . Easy as put the sweetness in your refrigerator next to the milk or on the table next to your cereal bowl , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — about anywhere where you’ll find it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
Giving your body a bit of sugar in the morning is good to kick-start your metabolism for the 24 hours and fuel to your brain, which, incidentally, requires a continuous supply of sweetness in the form of process glucose, counting at to around 120g daily. There is also essential evidence to backup the idea that a diet high in fiber can reduce your risk of a count of of cancers. And of course, you benefit from all the other vitamins and antioxidants in fruit, which keep you powerfull and healthy.
