What’s baking in Savvy Cook’s kitchen this week?

Rather belatedly, here’s what will be baking in our kitchen this week.

Given the fact that the weather is going to be  quite bit cooler for  a couple of more days, a delicious ginger cake and some fig & walnut biscuits which would both be perfect with – dare I say it – a cup of hot chocolate or a cup of strong Assam tea,  no milk for me.

Parkin (serves 10-12, £ 9.50)

Densely satisfying cake with a deeply gingery smell and flavour; keeps really well, if anything it improves with age. A bit like men.

Oatmeal is an excellent source of soluble fibre. This can help reduce high blood cholesterol levels. It also slows the absorption of sugar in the body which in turn helps to keep blood sugar levels stable. Blackstrap molasses is the most nutritious type of molasses. It contains lots of minerals important for health including iron, calcium, copper, phosphorus, magnesium and zinc.

Fig & walnut crunchies (£ 1.50 for 3 biscuits)

Delicously chunky biscuits made with gram (chickpea) and barley flour + jumbo oats.

Dried figs are a good source of potassium, calcium and iron as well as fibre. They contain both insoluble fibre (helping to keep the digestive system healthy and regular) and soluble fibre (helping to control levels of cholesterol and sugar in the blood). Walnuts are rich in protein and contain several antioxidant nutrients including selenium, zinc, copper and vitamins E.
