  • 2019 October Newsletter - Gluten Free Baking
    *|MC:SUBJECT|*
    Dear *|FNAME|*
    Around 1 in 10 Australians are restricting the amount of gluten they’re eating, whether it’s to combat an allergy or help relieve some stomach issues. Thankfully, a diet free from gluten doesn’t have to mean the end of enjoying pizza, bread or other baked goods.

    Gluten Free Baking

    With Laucke’s gluten-free flours and some extra attention to detail, it’s possible to re-create gluten-free varieties of our favourite foods that hit the spot.
    Here are some popular recipes for Coeliacs or people with a gluten intolerance:

    Gluten Free Pizza Bases

    Laucke’s Easy Bakers Gluten Free Meal & Grains Bread Mix means you can enjoy perfect pizza without worrying about your stomach.

    Tips & tricks
    • If you prefer a thin, crisp crust, drizzle around a tablespoon of olive oil on the tray before adding the dough.
    • For best results, partially bake the gluten-free bases for 4-6 minutes before adding the toppings.
    Recipe

    Gluten Free Baby Rusks

    If you’ve got a little one who’s teething, why not make your own rusks? They’re super easy and you can be comfortable knowing exactly what is in them.
    Recipe

    Gluten Free Doughnuts

    Who would’ve thought doughnuts could find a place on a gluten-free menu?!
    Give these a go using a doughnut dispenser, piping bag or just a plastic bag with a 1cm hole cut in the corner.
    Our Gluten Free Doughnuts and Baby Rusks recipes use Laucke’s Easy Bakers Special White Premix.

  • 2019 August Newsletter - Winter Classics
    *|MC:SUBJECT|*
    Dear *|FNAME|*
    Make the last few weeks of winter a tasty time of year. We’ve just added some new-and-improved recipes to our website – all that’s left to do is roll up your sleeves and get baking!

    Winter Classics

    Here are some crowd-pleasers to get you through this season:

    This Chocolate Babka tastes as good as it looks.

    Babka is a delicious sweet bread with eye-catching chocolate swirls throughout. Our CWA Scone Mix makes this a simple recipe to make. It is perfect for pairing with a coffee, tea or hot chocolate in front of the fire.
    Go To Recipe

    Did you know?

    • The recipe for babka is thought to have been devised by Eastern European Jews in the 16th century. It has well and truly stood the test of time!
    • Originally, the bread was made in much larger loaves – up to a few feet tall – and called a ‘baba’, which means ‘grandmother’ in many Slavic languages.  The smaller form we know today, is called ‘babka’ – ‘little grandmother.’

    Our Rum Baba recipe
    is fit for a King.

    Another must-try recipe that’s a descendent from the original babka loaf is Rum Baba. It’s  a soft, sticky dough which is  soaked overnight in a rum-sugar syrup. The idea was invented by an exiled King of Poland in the 1700s, who used to soak his afternoon snack in alcoholic spirit if it was too dry.
    Serve it with whipped cream and you can’t go wrong.
    Go To Recipe

    The English Malted Fruit Loaf is rich and addictive.

    There’s nothing like a thick slice of malt loaf with a smothering of real butter. Packed with sultanas and sweetened with delicious golden syrup, it’s an afternoon snack that is sure to get you through to dinner.

    From Mark Laucke: Understanding the health benefits of Wholegrain vs White Bread

    There’s a lot of information (and misinformation) around about the type of bread we should be eating.
    Did you know that well-milled white bread often provides our bodies with more vitamins and minerals than wholemeal or wholegrain varieties?
    To help provide some clarity, Laucke Managing Director Mark Laucke has penned this article about wholemeal/wholegrain flours, and the bioavailability of the nutrients they contain.

  • 2019 July Newsletter - School Holiday Baking
    *|MC:SUBJECT|*

    Dear *|FNAME|*

    Need a way to keep the kids busy these school holidays? Getting them away from screens and into the kitchen is a great activity for the whole family, and there’s a tasty treat at the end!

    School holiday baking ideas

    Here are some recipes that everyone will love eating and making:

    You can never go wrong with pancakes made from our CWA Scone Mix.

    These pancakes are worth getting out of bed for and they are fun to make! Homemade pancakes taste even better with our CWA Scone Mix, which contains quality ingredients to produce an amazing light and fluffy texture. The hardest decision is what to put on top: maple syrup, lemon and sugar, fresh fruit or, dare we say it, ice cream!
    If you have any left over batter, you can also make pikelets!
    Pancake Recipe
    • As the name suggests, our scone mix was developed in support of the South Australian Country Women’s Association (SACWA).
    • SACWA is a not-for-profit organisation that promotes the welfare and quality of life of women and children.
    • Part proceeds from every packet of CWA Scone Mix sold, benefits the work of the SACWA and assists in providing help to women and families in need, through its Emergency Aid Fund.
    • The SACWA know good scones when they see and taste them and  our CWA Scone Mix is what they use. The mixture not only produces great scones, but also wonderfully soft doughs for a range of different cakes and buns.

    No Gluten? No worries. Use our Gluten Free Easy Bakers Special White Mix instead.

    If you or anyone in your family is sensitive to gluten or wheat, you can still enjoy scrumptious pancakes by using our Gluten Free recipe instead.
    Gluten Free Pancake Recipe
    • It’s hard to come by top quality baked goods that don’t include wheaten flour, dairy products or yeast.
    • Our Easy Bakers Special White carries a variety of gluten free flours for added texture, nutrition and taste.
    • It’s so versatile, it can seamlessly substitute for wheaten flour in most breads, crumpets, dinner rolls and pizza bases.

    Cinnamon Scrolls using Wallaby Bakers Flour

    The perfect holiday snack that kids and adults of any age will love. Cinnamon Scrolls pair brilliantly with a cuppa  and can also make for a delicious dessert. This recipe uses Wallaby Bakers Flour, our most adaptable flour that should be a mainstay in every kitchen.
    Cinnamon Scroll Recipe

    Did you know?

    • Cinnamon Scrolls – also called ‘Rolls’ or ‘Buns’ – are thought to have originated in Sweden before finding a home in bakeries across the world.
    • Since 1999, Sweden and Finland have celebrated Cinnamon Roll Day (Kanelbullens dag) each year on 4 October.
    • Every year, the average Swede eats the cake and pastry equivalent of over 300 cinnamon scrolls!

  • 2019 June Newsletter - Winter Warmers
    *|MC:SUBJECT|*
    Dear *|FNAME|*

    As the days get shorter and the temperature plummets outside, turning to the kitchen is a great way to thaw out.

    These Winter Warmers are hearty,
    filling and delicious.

    Here are some of our favourite comfort foods to keep you warm and cosy during those chilly nights.

    Cob Loaf Soup

    You may well have made a cob loaf before, they’re often filled with cheesy dip and are perfect for entertaining - but filling the hollowed-out bread with a hearty soup will kick start your internal combustion heater.
    Swap ingredients: Use one of our Bread Mixes such as Crusty White or Barossa Sourdough & Rye. The cob loaf can also be made using our Bake at Home Sourdough Bread Kit.
    Cob Loaf & Roast Pumpkin Soup Recipe
    It’s a fact:
    • There is an annual Cob Loaf Festival held at Wellington in central-western New South Wales, where contestants can enter their favourite recipe in the Cob Loaf World Championships
    • From the 17th century, the word ‘cob’ was used in the UK, to describe small lumps of coal or grain. It’s assumed that’s where this round, crusty bread roll got its name.

    Cornish Pasty

    The pastry that encases a traditional Cornish pasty locks all the heat inside, both during and after baking, turning it into a makeshift pressure cooker.
    The end result? A piping hot, all-in-one meal that is full of flavour.
    Try this: Prepare some extra pasties and pop them in the freezer, ready to be brought out and baked whenever you’re short on time.
    Pasty Recipe

    Doughnuts with fillings

    On a cold day, there’s nothing like treating yourself to a hot baked doughnut that has a burst of flavour inside.
    Our favourite fillings include lemon curd, chocolate custard, and let’s be honest, you can’t go past strawberry jam!
    Doughnut Recipe

    The star of the pasty and doughnut recipes is our Wallaby Bakers Flour.

    Our famous Wallaby Bakers flour is a strong, universal flour that produces dough capable of meeting a wide range of baking requirements. Adaptable like the wallaby itself – it can be used to make anything from breads, buns, pastries to pizza.
