Carrot Walnut Spelt Loaf

This bread is based on my favourite flour to use, spelt. An ancient and slightly temperamental grain, spelt has largely avoided tampering with throughout the ages, which means we still get to enjoy the slightly nutty taste without nasty additives. I added walnuts and grated carrot to this particular loaf to keep it moist and slightly sweet – a winning combination!

Here are the ingredients:

  • Organic, unbleached spelt flour
  • Water
  • Yeast
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • A pinch of salt
  • Grated carrot
  • Walnuts

This bread is easy to enjoy with either sweet or savoury toppings, or even just on its own! Toasting it results in crunchy walnut, which brings out the nutty flavour even more. You can order this bread (it freezes well), or buy at on market days at my stand. Enjoy!

Swiss Carrot Cake

Traditional Swiss Carrot Cake in Sydney

A traditional Swiss delicacy, this cake was my mum’s favourite and I have lost track of the number of times I’ve baked it growing up. Deliciously juicy, with lemony zest and powdery sugar, this cake is best baked the day before and then left to rest, for the different flavours to mingle and create the cake’s sweet-sour signature taste. Because it only uses a very small amount of flour, it is light in taste and not too filling. This cake is one of my favourite suggestions for birthdays and weddings.

Ingredient list:

  • Carrots
  • Almond meal
  • Eggs
  • Lemon
  • Your choice of flour
  • Organic, raw sugar or honey
  • Baking powder

I like to top this cake with a thick lemony icing. Perfect for warm days! Interested? Order your own cake today!
