Einkorn Apple CakeEinkorn Flour has a great taste and light texture so lends itself very well to many baking applications. So we started off with a delicious cake made from our Einkorn Flour that is fantastic on its own. But then we thought – can it be made any better – well of course. This moist cake can be taken up a notch and turned into an extra special dessert. Firstly we tried a simple glaze made from icing sugar and the leftover juice we squeezed out of the grated apple. Nice, perfectly ok, but not quite what we were looking for. Frosting? Maybe but not this time – so we tried this caramel sauce instead. Super yummy and easy to make and was just perfect. So here it is – try it with and without – see what you think. ~ Enjoy J

january-newsletter-thumbnailSprouted flour is milled from grain that has been sprouted. Grains are seeds. So, sprouting means that the grain has been changed from a seed into a living plant. This happens by allowing the grain to soak in water long enough to wake it from its sleepy dormancy…and the process of germination is set in motion.
