Update: Doesn’t freeze.

Funnily I was going to make this back when I had the cheap quinoa flour, but it never happened. I do have trouble with yoghurt in baked good or alongside too many other ingredients, I’m getting better at tolerating it thankfully. Seeing as I had just a scant 50g of quinoa flour left over after yesterday I thought I should give this interesting recipe another look, lo and behold here we are. I haven’t changed the recipe at all, thought I may look into adjusting the flours and replacing the yoghurt, I like the idea of a thick spongy pancake. One thing, this isn’t a single serve recipe, I found two slices really filling. I’ve frozen the others as a test to see if it freezes well, I’ll update this recipe when I find out.

It’s a pretty simple recipe to bring together, assuming you have all the ingredients to hand. I used full fat yoghurt as it’s what I had to hand, low-fat may change the pancake, but I can’t say with certainty. The hardest part is flipping the bread, it’s easy to get up, but it’s very raw when flipping, you can see below mine took a bump, doesn’t make much difference it just makes it less presentable. Practice makes perfect and all that.

I’ve noticed that quinoa and buckwheat when used in conjunction with one another bring an interesting springiness, this bread is no exception. It’s firm and bouncy. It has a slightly yoghurty taste, that might just be me. Genuinely enjoyable, though filling as I’ve said. If you are curious about buckwheat and quinoa flour recipes, well, let’s see what I can remember:

BW and QF Bread, Piadine, Buns, Scones.

There might be others, but that’s all I can recall right at this moment. I’m a bit tired today, the weather is messing with me again. Strange, but true. Not sure if it’s low or high pressures, Thunder Weather as we call it here, seems to zap me of energy. So if anything isn’t clear just ask below. Hopefully I haven’t missed much, if anything.

As to what’s next on the agenda, well that almost two pound squash hints at more harlequin fun, not that I’ll be playing the  fool, that’s a great joke, okay I’m tired, I’ll try to be better, when it comes to using it. I’m going to try faux roast potatoes. If they don’t crisp up then I’ll go for my Gnocchi recipe. Imagine a potato-textured squash used to make gnocchi. Fun times ahead and squash still ripening. There are actually two harlequin squash dangling from high stalks, which I’ve never seen before. Only my second year  suppose, but interesting none the less. This time I don’t cut myself, hopefully. Okay until next time. *Yawns*

Oh, that courgette the big one, I found that by accident, I was moving vines and there was one that wouldn’t budge. I thought it had rooted or something, but nah, there was a huge courgette at the end. I never even noticed it. Funny, huh…*Falls asleep*
