Each day I learn something amazing. Like for example that in American recipes 1 cup is not realy one regular cup but a measuring cup. The same situation is with a tablespoon. The thing is that I am in love with some american blogs and I use their recipes quite often. Of course all this time I was using my favorite coffee cup and my soup’s tablespoon to measure. Then I’ve heard from a friend that it’s not exactly right. What can I say, I think I am an ignorant, but the good news is - it’s working well! So all of you who were living in a blissful ignorance like me, keep using you favorite cup ;) (I hope that it won’t bite me back one day, hahaha). On the other side I love all kind of a beautiful kitchen equipment and would love to have a nice measures for cups and spoons. Maybe one day :)
I have some good news, I’m going to Rome today!!! I was so excited about my little trip (it’s connected to work, but as I’ve never been to Rome, I am still very excited) that I cought a cold. Or maybe it was because I spent like 3 hours riding my bike like crazy lately.
I’m treating myself good, as a sick person should and I’m trying not to kiss Rysiek too much (we don’t want him to be sick). What is the best thing a sick person may do? Eat a good breakfast. As I’m mostly in bed, I’ve asked T. to bring me some products and I made a breakfast that made me very very happy plus was supe extra delicious. I’ve found the recipe on Sprouted kitchen blog just in time. You may think that it’s complicated, but it’s not. It will take you like 10 minutes to prepare it and then just bake it. I used a mix of a frozen fruits, as I didn’t have a heart to make T. look for a fresh ones. I must also say that a lemon juice and grated zest make the taste even better. You can bake it in a ramekins or a baking dish like I did. You can also cut ingredients and make a bit less.
And just when I was about to eat it, Mr Postman broght me a new Kinfolk Magazine. Could today be any better? I feel healthier already.
You will need (for 4):
- 1 cup & 3 tbsp flour
- 1/2 cup traditional rolled oats
- 3 tbsp & 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 & 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 5 tbsp unsalted butter, chilled and cut into cubes
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
- 6 cups mixed fruits
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon zest
- cream to serve
Preheat an oven to 175*C. In one bowl combine 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup oats, 3 tbsp. sugar, baking powder and salt. Add butter and using your hands smash it, connecting with all dry ingredients, until you will get clumps. Slowly add the yogurt and mix it slowly.
In another bowl mix fruits, 2/3 cup sugar, 3 tbsp. flour, lemon juice and lemon zest. Mix it gently and place in a baking dish. Cover fruits with pieces of an oat mix.
Bake for about 40 minutes when using a baking dish and about 20 if using ramekins.
If you’re not sure it it was good - here’s my baking dish 10 minutes after it left my oven.
