Nutritional values

Almonds and walnuts provide a plus of valuable fatty acids and vitamin E; the two bioactive micronutrients protect heart and vessels. And the grated carrots in the cake help to keep vision intact in the dark by providing plenty of provitamin A for the eyes.

Instead of the fresh pineapple you can use glass or cans. Then choose fruit pieces that have been preserved naturally sweet, i.e. without added sugar.
