Pie Pastry

This pie pastry goes well with numerous pies and creates a good and malleable crust! We mostly recommend sweet pies with this but you can do savoury too! The pastry tastes the best when made with homemade butter which you can easily make with double cream!

You can use this pastry to make a delicious peach tart as well if you’re looking for something sweet! If you use this- we recommend you refrigerate the pastry at least an hour before using then warm it to room temperature to make it easy to roll. If it’s too dry- add more ice water as well!

This white bread is very delicious and delectable! Along with this, it’s very great toasted with homemade butter and other toppings! The inside of the bread is very aerated and soft which works well with soups and other dishes you might want to add it to.

toasted flour recipe

Toasted flour is flour that has been cooked for a short amount of time to toast it. It adds a much more earthy and browned flavour to the flour which can give depth to many recipes. Whilst doing this it also kills the bad micro-organisms that can be harmful when you eat raw flour. I used this flour for cookie dough since you won’t have to worry about getting ill from it!

You can use it in pretty much any recipe! Especially pies- we suggest you try it out with our apple and pear pie! You can find any other recipes which you could use on our YouTube channel!

Flatbread

There are a lot of types of flatbread out there! We’ll be doing the basic type but linking multiple variations in this recipe post! Along with being a fast food to cook- it’s also amazingly cheap and you can pretty much use any oil you want! Save money on store-bought flatbreads and make these for less than a pound!

Usually, I use wheat flour but I made besan ki roti’s a few weeks ago and they were delicious! If you’ve got any besan flour to use – make sure to try those! Making flatbread usually has the same method – so you don’t need to worry if you change it a bit. Less water makes them drier- less oil makes them harder to roll. Just make sure you’ve got the right amount of those to the amount of flour used. Never forget that a pinch of salt goes a really long way.

  • You can use crushed cardamon with this recipe to give this a really refreshingly nice taste! You can watch that version on YouTube.

Egg Cake

This egg cake prioritises the rubbery texture that is created through the use of multiple eggs. You can add fruit to this recipe like bananas to give the cake substance other than its rubber texture. It’s a simple yet delicious recipe that only utilises 3 base ingredients.

Image step-by-step of the Egg Cake

Mine’s a bit burnt but that’s because it wasn’t cooked when I checked since I had it at the bottom of the oven. Make sure to poke the middle if you think it’s cooked just to check whether it is or not. It will leak if it’s uncooked.

If the cake leaks then make sure to cut the part off when cooked. It should peel off quite easily. I suggest adding flavouring and fruit or nuts to this recipe to make it better if you cook it. Keep in mind that this recipe is a base; so you can experiment with the base.
