The perfect way to try out our newest wheat - Mediterranean. It hasn't been grown or tasted for over 50 years! Pam, our neighbor at Abby Jane Bakeshop, has graciously shared her recipe with you all. Enjoy!

Weighing ingredients is the way to go - it's a good habit to get into and will provide more consistent results. Here is the scale we use.

Ingredients

120gBSMSonora '00' orMediterranean '00' or Purple Straw '00'

298g Sugar

425g Egg Whites

1/2tsp Salt

1tsp Vanilla Extract

1 1/2tsp Tartar

Directions 

1. Combine half of the sugar and flour. Set aside.

2. Combine egg whites, salt and vanilla. Whip until frothy, add tartar, whip to stiff peaks.

3. Add remaining sugar, 1 spoonful at a time, until glossy.

4. Fold in dry ingredients a little at a time until no lumps remain.

5. Bake at 300F for 30min. Rotate for an additional 10min, or until edges appear golden and the center is cooked through.

6. Allow cake to cool UPSIDE DOWN at room temperature.

Tips

No need to oil or butter your pan - it can cause unwanted sponge shrinkage!

A bundt pan is great, but use what you already have in your kitchen!

Be sure to cool the cake upside down - this prevents the sponge from collapsing. Then simply run a knife around the edges of the pan once cooled to remove.

Excellent Einkorn Berries & Great Customer Service!

We live locally in Austin and wanted to pick up some Einkorn berries (we make sourdough Einkorn bread and love it) and customer service was quick to reply and get my order ready for pickup! Very friendly and helpful. Excellent wheat berries without hulls (we’ve had an issue buying from other companies where the hills were still intact on a lot of the berries. We love Barton Springs Mill!

Nice surprise

The Bloody Butcher corn meal I purchased arrived neatly packaged and ready to use. It mixed well with my corn bread recipe and it turned out smooth, rich texture and delicious. I'd definitely buy it again.

Love white wheat berries!

Loving the new Big Country white wheat berries from Barton Springs Mills! It has been 20+ yrs since I had access to and used white wheat for baking, I had forgotten the beauty of the flour. Thank you!

Beautiful Grain!!

Besides being beautiful, my sourdough starter couldn’t be happier. Have already made bread, and it is super complex and smells like toasty heaven. The best part is the heritage and organic stewardship, which we all need more of in our current mono-culture world. Thanks Barton Springs for all your hard work on this one!!
