Nearly two months since my last writing here! I do apologize for this. But the happy note is that I got the results of my first exam which I have passed with distinction. Please stay tuned as in the coming week I will insert a new page with the services I will now provide as a holistic health and nutrition guide to share my knowledge and help people to regain their optimal health.

I am not writing much here, but I am still cooking a lot. I came up this recipe as I participated to an event and helped with the ” catering”. The event being in summer with hundreds of ladies attending, it had to be easy, with the possibility to prepare in advance and it had to keep well.

I propose therefore here the recipe of a savoury cake. I have work with a raised dough which was a first for me. Working with kamut and rice flour, the volume will not double, but the dough will rise. 

You will need:

2 1/4 cups of flour ( a mix of kamut and rice flour at equal proportions) 1 cup yogurt 2 eggs 1/4 cup water 2 table spoons unsalted butter 2 table spoons sugar 1 table spoon dried lavender (grinned) 2,5 tea spoons dried yeast 2 tea spoons fresh thyme leaves 1/4 tea spoon baking soda

Pre-heat the oven at 170 C (fan oven). Combine sugar, lavender, yeast, thyme baking soda and 1/4 cup of the flour. Put the butter and the water in a saucepan, warm it and add it to the previous mix. Beat it until smooth. Add the yogurt, eggs and 1/2 cup of the remaining flour. Beat it on high speed until smooth and elastic. Add the remaining of the flour and beat again. Let rise about an hour in a warm place. Bake it for about 20 min at 170 C.

It is ideal to serve for cocktail, enjoy!
