I bought an amazing cook book yesterday. It has all the recipes of my favourite chef Bill Granger. The book was only four pounds in our local second hand book store and I didn’t even have to glimpse it through as I knew I would want it. I have been watching Bill Granger’s TV show where he is touring around UK and I absolutely love his recipes. He is so health conscious but recipes whilst being healthy are always mouthwatering. So if you need a good cookbook I warmly recommend Bill Granger’s Every Day. I am planning to cook it through and will drop some of the recipes to this blog.
I baked the breakfast loaf yesterday following Bill Granger..Well..I almost followed the recipe but not quite so here is my version of it.
50g rolled oats (1/2 cup = 1dl)
300 ml oat milk (Granger uses regular milk)
240g (2 cups =4 dl) plain white gluten free flour (Granger used regular self raising flour or wholemeal)
2 tsp baking powder
150ml (approximately 175g) dried fruits and nuts (crushed walnuts and hazelnuts, small pieces or dried apricot, raisins and dried cranberries, Granger used 125 dried cherries and 50g dried apple, 3 tbs crushed almonds)
75g (1/3 cup+3/4dl) soft brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
3 tbs honey (I used Acasia)
1 tsp Orgran No Egg + 2 tsp water (Granger used 1 egg lightly beaten)
on the top some rolled oats
1. Soak the rolled oats with the oat milk for 30minutes.
2. Preheat the oven in 180 celsius degrees. Grease and line the bread tin.
3. Mix the flour and baking powder in a bowl.
4. Stir in rolled oats with oat milk, dried fruit, sugar, cinnamon, honey, No Egg mix and mix together well.
5. Pour it to the bread tin and bake for 35-45 minutes.
I can guarantee this is tasty!!! Bear in mind that when not using regular wheat flour the dough does not raise a lot but the flavour is amazing!
