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.
