I have been doing some baking trials with barley flour for the past few months so that I can add it to the Ovenderful baked-to-order menu.
xplosion of flavours – all of which are intense in their own way. So as a baker, you have to decide which flavours will have the high notes and which will play the subtle, low notes.
Here’s the result – these amazing Barley Flour Coffee Walnut Mini Bundt Cakes with nutmeg and coconut sugar !
The high fiber content, tremendous heart related benefits of barley infused with coffee, spiced with freshly grated nutmeg and textured with walnuts makes this a perfect snack. And if that wasnt enough, it has NO-butter and NO-white sugar too !
