Stage 1 - 3 min.
Oat shortbread biscuits
Blend 100 g rolled oats for a few seconds to obtain a rough oat flour.

Stage 3 - 5 min.

Knead until evenly mixed (about 4 or 5 minutes).

Stage 5 - 10 min.
Oat shortbread biscuits
Preheat oven to 180°C (360°F).

Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.

"Chinese" - what a strange name for this cake! A kind of brioche, filled with confectioner's custard (crème pâtissière) which can be decorated with fondant icing.

  • LOVE this recipe, jh. I've been using oat flour when ever I can include it these days. I enjoy the flavor it imparts especially in baked goods. Although, I have added it to bread crumbs too. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
