Lupin beer bread - guest post
I was blessed earlier in the year to meet an incredible lady named Belinda Lay. Belinda was one of my fellow finalists in the Rural Women's Award & in actual fact ended up winning the award for Western Australia with her project of 'Like Fit Bit for Sheep'. Belinda is keen to have more knowledge about her sheep's movements & wanting to be able to care for them better. She plans on doing this with collars on sheep that record their movements, vital signs & let her know when something is going wrong. I will now let Belinda share with you a recipe she converted with some lupin flour she received for being on a panel at the Rural, Regional & Remote Women's Conference.
DISCLAIMER: this is not a gluten free recipe.
After meeting Tanya through the 2019 Agrifutures Rural Womans Award this year, I loved the different perspective her family has on a pulse grain normally fed to sheep.
I have been a member of CWA for over 15yrs, I use to enter baked cakes into my local show and won overall large cake section on multiple occasions. So when I was gifted a bag of the My Provincial Kitchen wholemeal lupin flour I couldn’t help but play to get used to how it cooked. I thought I would treat Robert to a recipe that combines a few of a Lupin Farmers favourite things; lupins, beer & cake
