Enjoying the fruits of spring with sweet strawberries and fragrant peaches, served on warm einkorn shortcake.
Einkorn is an ancient grain. It's a unique, tasty four. I whipped it into a buttery shortcake using a modified version of the biscuit ratio: 3:1:2 (flour:fat:liquid). I used all-purpose and fresh-ground einkorn (300g) and mixed it with a vegan buttery spread (80g). I used a "lite" version of the product which contained more water than fat, so it clumped when I cut them together. Then I added in the almond milk (200ml) and mixed thoroughly. Einkorn has less gluten than wheat, so it doesn't tend to get tough when it's mixed.
While it's baking, I hacked up some strawberries and fragrant peaches. Saving a few for garnish, I smashed up the rest with some agave syrup, vanilla and a whisper of ultra gel for thickness.
When the shortcakes were golden brown, I removed and let them cool for a minute before cutting them in half.
Spoon on the fruit and enjoy!
