Gluten free apple pear and almond cake + my 30 plants weekly challenge. πŸ“

β€’18 Replies

Hi everyone,

I've been experimenting with buckwheat flour as it's gluten free and is great nutritionally, the cake is 1/2 buckwheat flour and half ground almonds with 2 pears and 2 apples so it's packed with nutrition.

Here's the recipe I used except I added pears today:

Here's my plants eaten last week total 39:

Brocoli, Cauliflower, Carrot, Brown onion, Chestnut mushrooms, Tomatoes, Garlic, Leeks, Celery

Spinach, Beetroot, Green beans, Sweet peppers, Brown rice, Quinoa, lentils, Almonds, Peanut butter, Soy

Buckwheat, Gari, Hops, Blue berries, Strawberries, Raspberries, Bananas , Apples, Pears, Sultanas

Currants, Coconut, Chia seeds, Pumpkin seeds, Sesame seeds, Linseeds, Chives, Parsley, Ginger

I hope you're enjoying the weekend and take care if you have snow. ❄️ β˜ƒοΈ

Looks delicious Jerry. I’m having to avoid apples and pears at the moment, but think this might work with blueberries. 😊

Thanks Penny, I'm sure that it would be really good with blueberries I used sultanas last time and I think pineapple would be good too...

I look forward to hearing how you get on with a blueberry cake. 😊

Good Morning Penel, great idea. In my opinion Everthing Taste Better With Blueberries. Granni B

Hi Hidden

Wow, this is lovely - I bet it is gorgeous with pear, but I also like Penel 's suggestion of blueberries - maybe even both!

I am also very impressed by your 39 Plants eaten last week - that is brilliant, and I love seeing the different ones - believe it or not, I've started categorising mine via the alphabet - as Misslovely mentioned an Alphabet Plant challenge, and that made me wonder how many letters I could cover - I will therefore be listing mine that way - when I report back early next week - I think my week is going from Tuesday to Tuesday - I can't remember - but it's fun to do it.

Great, just join in whenever you want to, Granni B. In the meantime, you can enjoy reading the lists of the people participating - I have found doing this challenge is making me think of extra veggies or fruits that I might not have considered before - for example this week I bought a Mango - so I'm looking forward to having some of that. I have had mango before, but only rarely - and I just fancied some for a change. :-)

Funny thing Zest, mangos are my grandson's favorite... he puts them in smoothies... and l have never eaten one... but now l will give it a try.

Where will l find the list?

Hi Granni B,

My list is included here, in this post:

Misslovely 's list is pinned in the Pinned posts - so easy to find as well.

Mango will be on next week's list, as I only bought it today - but it looks so delicious - I have 2 mangos infact - and looking forward to using them. Great that your Grandson enjoys them - and that they are his favourites. I can understand why - a very sweet taste - maybe you could try some to see what you think?

Absolutely, it's a great Challenge. :-)

in reply to Zest

Thank you Zest, It was Penny who told me about buckwheat fruit cakes and me being me thought I want some of that...The pears with apples are a great combo as I've tested it, it has a relatively low sugar level which I like.

I listed my plants in a slightly chaotic manner and was impressed that Misslovely is doing and alphabet challenge, as its such a great idea and the incentive to try something different which this whole 30 plants+ has already done that for me, so I think I will also have a go at the alphabet challenge.

I believe that you have eaten the most plants at 51 which's a great accomplishment. So very well done you. 😊

I think your cake looks great Jerry. I feel inspired to make a cake using pears now! πŸ˜‹

in reply to Agoodenough

Thank you Ali, I'd recommend baking a cake with pears and interesting it's based on a N Italian recipe apple/plum/pear almond and buckwheat cake Trentino Alto Adige which's the region it is a delicacy...And you just happen to be in Northern Italy. πŸ˜€
