Masterchef contestant Georgia Barnes awarded first prize to this delicious breakfast treat at Endeavour's recent Virtual Cook-Off, where students competed against one another for a place among the top three.

First place winner Katherin Maitre was delighted by her win. Now in her second year studying a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetic Medicine at Endeavour's Perth Campus, Katherin believes strong functioning gut health is a core part of improving a person's health and wellbeing. She said this formed part of the inspiration for her recipe.

Kathrin said her future goal is to work with mums and bubs. "I'm looking to focus on prenatal and post-natal care, as well as making sure that kids are getting the best start to their growth and function," said Katherin. "I'm a huge advocate for gluten-free and dairy-free alternatives and the significant improvements that a few simple changes to a diet can make for a person."

Katherin is looking forward to developing her own recipe book. In the meantime, check out some of her delightfully decorated sweet treats and other delicious recipes on Instagram @takeout_cake
