Currently available at Rainbow Wholefoods...

I thought I would pop up some pictures of my cakes and bakes that are currently available at Rainbow Wholefoods, as I realise I write what is available on the Deerly Beloved Bakery facebook status all the time, but you guys don't necessarily know what these delicious cakes look like! I deliver to Rainbow three times a week so your favourites should always be available, however they have been known to sell out! So if you can't find what you are looking for, be sure to ask the lovely staff at the counter!

Pitta breads stuffed with hazelnut and parsley marinated aubergene.

The last couple of days I have been thinking about marinades and how they are used traditionally with tofu (or meat products ewwwwww) to make it taste better and add flavour, and I got thinking I could use marinades on vegetables to jazz them up! As my diet is primarily vegetables, whole grains, beans and fruits these more often than not need some big flavours to make them come alive! So armed with armfuls of herbs, olive oil, chilli's, garlic, balsamic and anything else I could find in the cupboard, I set out to make me some marinades!!!! And this is what I came up with....
In a food processor add a large hand full of hazelnuts, a spring onion, a clove of garlic, a hand full of parsley, a generous glug of olive oil to loosen, salt and pepper.

Blitz until it forms a loose paste, add more oil if needed, along with salt and pepper to taste.

Spoon the paste over some thinly sliced aubergene and allow it to marinate for at least an hour in the fridge.

Then pop it in the oven at around 200c for 25 to 30 mins, turning once or twice. Make a nice green salad with tomatoes or any salad you like, warm up some pitas and plate up!
This would also be good as a filling for aubergene canaloni. Where you cook aubergene slices, spread on some of the paste, roll it up the slices into a roll an place in a baking dish and cover in a rich tomato sauce and then bake in the oven! Wonderful!

Birthdays and whoopie pies!

So this weekend has been very busy with it being my nieces 12th birthday, my step dads birthday and a trip to the coast to celebrate! I also had orders for birthday cakes, and my usual Rainbow Wholefoods order.
My niece loves my whoopie pies and always chooses them above all other cakes when I have a market stall. So for her birthday I made her a box of rainbow assorted whoopie pies with a chocolate chip 'buttercream' center.

She was very pleased and said it was her 'best present'! We also had a birthday sleep over and ate whoopie pies for breakfast! It's great being an aunty!
So now I am offering you a selection of 7 whoopie pies any flavour, colour and filling for £9! They are normally £2 each so you are getting a great saving with the whoopie pie birthday box! Contact me if you would like to order one for your beloved!
