IS CAKE THE PERFECT FUEL FOR OUTDOOR SWIMMERS?

From healthy sweet potato cakes to chocolate and cream feasts, we have been testing your recipes in the quest to find the perfect cake for cold water swimming

Forget energy gels, isotonic drinks, chia seeds and coconut oil, for many swimmers their fuel of choice is cake. Delicious cake.

With its finely tuned ratio of carbs, fats and protein, cake is so versatile that it can be used both pre-swim for energy and post-swim for recovery. We asked you for your favourite cake recipes for cold water swimming and, after extensive research and testing, we have chosen the four tastiest recipes for you to try at home. Let us know what you think!

About Outdoor Swimmer

Welcome to the Christmas issue. This month we talk to English Channel record holder Becky Lewis about her seven crossings (and counting!) and to Beth French about her plan to complete the Oceans Seven in one year, despite suffering from ME. Have you ever wanted to swim an Ice Mile? We have expert advice on how to train safely for one of swimming's most extreme challenges. And if you like a bit of trail running with your outdoor swimming, we take an in-depth look at the endurance sport of swimrun. We have inspiring travel features on Italy, Scotland and the French Riviera. And as it's Christmas we have some delicious cake recipes to try! Plus all the usual training advice and sessions, news, interviews, inspirational stories and event listings for 2016.
