Egyptian Gold Flour

When we went on our mini-break in Clare, we passed through Tarlee. I had always wanted to visit Four Leaf Milling's shop to see their product range. So that's what we did.

Woohooo! I was like a child in a lolly shop. The range is fantastic! The lady in the shop was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were able to stock up on flour, grains, seeds, etc. Do visit them, if you are in the area.

Anyway, I was intrigued by their Egyptian Gold Flour.

On Sunday I was finally able to experiment with it. Pancakes for brunch. I had made them many times before (a Jamie Oliver recipe) and they are always a hit.

This time however, the reaction from Flower Gnome was unprecedented.

"Ecstasy!" was the first exclamation.

Ummm... I think I'll censor the second exclamation! *LOL*

This was my plate.
Flower Gnome insisted I take a picture of a 'proper' helping - which obviously includes ice-cream. So here is her plate.There were two types of pancakes. Banana and pears. Topped with maple syrup. Heaven!

The flour changed the texture quite a bit. The pancakes were fluffier but also had more umphh (maybe I should translate that into 'bite'). It is not as finely ground as the usual flour. The taste was excellent. Slightly nutty.

This looks interesting. I've sourced a distributor in Hobart, so will pick some up to try in the bread when we go down there for the new baby. Pancakes look yummy.

I can imagine just how exciting shopping at that place would be. Dangerous!

Your pancakes look very yummy!

Hmm, I always use their rolled oats, they seem much nicer than other sorts and make a creamier porridge (maybe because they are fresher) I shall have to keep an eye out for Egyptian Gold flour
