The second recipe which Minoo demonstrated in the South Arm Community Kitchen is taken from Fresh Choice. Although it is called Oats Cake, it is more like a cookie or granola bar.
The Oats Cake is crispy when it’s fresh from the oven. I noticed that it turns soft the next day for those extras that we took home. These Oats Cake makes a great after school snack.
- 2 cups unbleached flour
- 2 cups rolled oats (we used quick cooking oats)
- 2/3 cups brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda (I’ll recommend reduce this by 1/4 teaspoon as the oats cake has a hint of bitterness to it but if you eat it with jam, you will not taste the bitterness)
- 1 cup butter
- 1/3 cup cold water
Source: Fresh Choice
Serves 8 portions
For the third recipe, Minoo prepared a Carrot and Orange Soup.
I had blogged about a similar recipe here, so I wont blog about this Carrot and Orange Soup.
