Let it Grain
Don’t judge me Jamie, but I feed my children cake from a packet.
Now before you get all preachy, let me stress that it’s not just any old mix I use. The folks at Grainstorm want us to ‘Bake Like It’s 1849’ and to that end are producing wonderful mixes bursting with 100 per cent organic goodness. Everything from the wheat to the sugar to the baking soda is pre-industrial.
I use the Golden Kamut loaf mix (just add eggs, butter, olive oil and yoghurt) but there are plenty to choose from, like oatmeal, red fife and ancient grains. You’ll find plenty of easy-as-pie recipes on the back of the package.
It’s the best thing since sliced bread. —Athena Tsavliris
