Building a Feast

January 7, 2013 in Uncategorized

People have asked me why I place composition pictures on my blogs.

The answer? I like to do them, I am a graphic designer by trade and food is the next best interest!

I have so many photographs from all kinds of sources and playing around with them to fit in with the blog I write is like building a puzzle, just like putting different ingredients into a pot is a puzzle. The outcome is the same… A FEAST! Whether for the eyes or the taste buds, a feast is worth building.

So, here’s to building a great year, feast by feast….

I bake for people with diabetes, allergies and such. When I started doing this, it was a whole new world that opened to me. Different flours, different ingredients, different concepts. They all came together to lead me into a fantastic world where I can rebuild the feasts that my grannies made – just with different ingredients.

Quick and easy oat bread

  • 750ml oats flour (blitz regular oats and make your own whole flour)
  • 15ml baking powder
  • 2ml salt
  • 15ml sugar
  • 375ml soda water

(Optional: add 2 eggs/15ml onion flakes/sunflower seeds)

  • Mix all the ingredients together
  • Form with your hands in the shape you like – I like it round
  • Bake for 45-60 minutes in an 190°C oven.
  • Sprinkle some raw oats on top for decoration.
  • Let it cool completely before you slice it.
The bread has cracks on top like soda bread once baked. Should you want to bake it as a loaf, add a packet of instant yeast and let it double in volume before baking.
