Wakelyns Bakery at Wakelyns Organic Agroforestry produces small batches of wholegrain bread for us every week. A celebration of a system - oats and plums and barley grow! Agroforestry, the system of farming used at Wakelyns, yields so much more than just cereals; the trees, shrubs and other perennial plants provide timber, wood, dye, fruit and nuts (as well as creating a rich habitat for wild species).
Baker Henrietta Inman says:
We’re very happy to have created and to share with you all, this bursting-full-of-goodness treat, adapting one of our favourite cakey things, a good old date and oat slice, with the ingredients we have around us, and other, kind, directly traded ingredients. Instead of dates, we cook up many Wakelyns plums, fresh and dried, with New Dawn Traders wonderful, unrefined panella sugar and a little Wakelyns cider vinegar and sea salt to balance out the sweetness. Together they create an oozing rich centre between two layers of barley and oat crunchy-crumbliness. Barley flour has a delicate sweet-creamy flavour; with the slightly toothsome kibbled and flaked barley and oats, they create such a yummy combination of many flavours and textures, complimenting the prune centre.
As well as wheat, it’s really joyful and important to use other grains in our baking, supporting diversity on farm and inside us. With its distinct flavour, barley is a beautiful addition to every kitchen! We love using it from our friend, plant breeder, Ed Dickin’s family farm. Ed is working on a naked barley population also.
Please be aware that we bake and cook with the seasons, what we have around us and our preserved stocks of fruit, and when some ingredients run out, for example, when we use up all our candied quince, we will seek the appropriate alternatives for flavour and nutrition, but also for our bakery stock rotation, using up what we have so that we are prepared for the coming summer – autumn abundance until the next hungry gap.
