Hubby's Healthy Birthday Cake

Back in June was my Hubby's birthday.  It was just a few days after starting our new healthy lifestyle, but I didn't want him not to have a birthday cake.  I mean, I would feel like a total failure of a wife if I didn't make him a birthday cake.  He tends to like cakes with fruit in them.  His favorite is Lemon Supreme bundt cake, but that is not low fat.  So, I was on the hunt for a new cake.  I searched through many recipes and finally decided on this recipe. 

Easy Blueberry Buttermilk Cake

I tried to cut and paste the recipe, but Skinnytaste's website won't allow it so you'll have to go to her site to get the recipe. 

 Why is it the blueberries always sink to the bottom?  That drives me crazy!!

 We opted for one candle instead of 41. 

In other FFB news, Hubby and I have been on Shakeology and Insanity for 5 weeks.  My Hubby lost 12 pounds and 6 inches in that time.  I lost 4 pounds and 4 inches.  It doesn't sound like much, but it's progress and it's amazing how much better I feel.  I couldn't even do a push up at the beginning of this program, but now I can do at least ten.  I feel so much stronger than I did.  We have 4 more weeks to go so we'll see how much progress we make in that time. 


  1. Congrats on your progress so far! Happy Birthday to your husband too! :)

  2. Congrats!!! I decided that as much as I love food, being skinny again is more fun;) and healthy!!

  3. I'm late to the party, but since the birthday was in June, you were late too so I don't feel so bad. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO HIM! You two are like that commercial where the husband keeps losing more weight than the wife. Still, I'm proud for both of you and agree that it's more than just weight. It's the whole package. Go girl, go!

    Now, I'm going to click the recipe.

    Oh, and did you dust the blueberries with some flour or cornstarch first? That is supposed to help them not sink. I've never bothered to do it, but that's what I have heard.
