Bucking the trend SQUARE OF THE SEASON

Beyond finishing cookies with sea salt and putting tahini in everything, the biggest baking trend this year has been using alternative flours. Home bakers have had success with every- thing from rye flour in chocolate chip cookies to chickpea flour in banana bread. Rich in fibre and minerals and naturally gluten-free, buckwheat flour has an earthy, nutty flavour that pairs beautifully with chocolate. Experience this winning combination in our moist, fudgy Gluten-Free Buckwheat Brownies (recipe on page 254).

Ernest Cider Holiday Pack LCBO 17064, 4 x 473 mL, $19.05

Only local fruit is used in these ciders. This pack includes Ernest’s Wild Blue- berry and their flagship Rubee with cranberries, cherries and honey, plus a branded glass.
