'Apam Balik' Malaysian Peanut Pancake

'Apam Balik' Malaysian Peanut Pancake

'Apam balik' is a Southeast Asian fluffy pancake with cream corn and peanuts. It is very popular street food in Malaysia. This soft pancake which is usually made to order has a thick surface with a thin and crispy side. I have adapted the original recipe for a healthier version using a sourdough starter instead of commercial yeast.

Coffee and walnut cake

Coffee and walnut cake

Your best cup buddy! The vegan experience is worth the try just to shake this up a little bit. Why waste the aquafava anyway when there are so many things you can do with it? More than that, there is no need to panic when you suddenly realised that you are out of eggs in the end. Flax seeds would also do I would think but my experience did not go that far. Hope you can enjoy too!

Roasted Chestnut Spelt Sourdough

Roasted Chestnut Spelt Sourdough

This is a wonderful loaf to bake after scavenging for chestnuts on a nice autumn forest walk. The longer fermentation that sourdough allows the chestnuts to impart a bit more flavour on the final bread. The chestnuts work really well with the nutty flavour of Spelt, while the strong white flour gives it the necessary strength.

The cranberries add sweetness so can be served simply with unsalted butter or clotted cream.


Walnut Sourdough

Walnut Sourdough

This is an overnight ferment studded with walnut, at 75% hydration so easy enough to handle but still wet enough for moist, open crumb. You must have a ripe, happy starter that at least doubles reliably. Your workspace need to not stray too far from 26.5c, otherwise you'll need to make adjustments to the fermentation time. Everything is done by hand, no kneading required!

Festival rolls

Festival rolls

I went to my first festival this month and made some delicious rolls to take with me and share with friends. They were great with brie on the first day (it doesn't matter if it gets hot and runs), then went well with fried eggs as egg banjos for breakfast and are really tasty on their own, as they are filled with great ingredients!


Honey Bear Bread....(Honey-ied Pear and walnut bread)

Honey Bear Bread....(Honey-ied Pear and walnut bread)

A lovely wholemeal/organic white bread with a delicate walnut crunch and sweet pears poached in mead with an extra hint of honey. This little beauty can be made with a 60/40 mix of wholemeal / white or add light rye flour for a little extra flavour. Rye gives it a stronger texture. When I lived in Germany, Birnenbrot was always made with light rye flour. My two young boys however are not fooled by me trying things different on the bread front, so you can use wholemeal which keeps the crumb soft! We adults enjoy this with a bit of gorganzola , camembert, or Roquefort (no need for chutney) and a lovely glass of your favourite red or white wine. The boys love this for breakfast too, warmed up with butter. I used Lindisfarne Mead from a recent trip at Easter, but apple juice works just as well.

Very versatile they can be made in a large chunky shape for a light lunch with soup or served with a mild cheese like Brie with grapes or for delicious nibbles with drinks cut quite small and serve halved and topped with Brie flashed under the grill to melt.
