I havent had much time in my kitchen lately, 2 weeks ago I had one of my contracted model Gemma Lynx staying at my place for a full week to shoot for her upcoming website and the next after that, Max and I got super sick. It was such a pleasure to go back to my pots and pans the week end after getting better, smelling all my spices and plan a bunch of tasty goodies for my friends and family. One of the first thing I wanted to make once I got back was some sweets, it’s one of the funnest thing to create for me and I wanted to start using this awesome buckwheat flour I had bought at the grocery a few days before.
I LOOOOOOVE buckwheat and I’m happy Max likes it too because it’s extremely healthy. I invited one of my friend who kept telling me that he hate buckwheat to have him taste my latest creation because I like to challenge people like that. Now I can officially say that he now changed his mind about this flour right after tasting my moist orange & almond buckwheat cakes.
Like I just said, these cakes are extremely moist and drench in an infused light syrup with cloves, star anise, pepper, coriander seed and cardamon pods… Give them a try, it’s so worth it.
