Peach Cupcakes with Cashew Cardamom Frosting
The combination of fresh peaches, cashew cream and cardamom is AHmazing. Spelt flour contains some gluten (less than wheat) so make sure you buy sprouted flour for better digestion (AKA no bloating!) Or you can easily substitute your favourite gluten free flour blend.

‘Nice cream’, which is vegan ice cream (dairy free), is pretty much a staple in my household during the warmer months.
