Apple Teff and Buckwheat Pancakes

Screen Shot 2019-10-10 at 1.32.16 AM.pngIt’s a 30,000 year old indulgence with a history steeped deep into the Stone Age.  It’s an adaption that meets the dietary requirements for coeliac using a mixed flour approach in order to let you control the pronunciation of buckwheat in this recipe.


  • 3/4 cup teff flour
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 3/4 cup almond milk or milk of choice
  • 2 eggs or equivalent substitute
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • optional
  • shutterstock_569441680.jpg1/2-1 grated organic apple, skin on


  1. Place all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well
  2. Add grated apple and mix
  3. Combine milk, maple and eggs or egg substitute into a measuring jug
  4. Add milk mix into dry mix and stir to combine
  5. Place spoonfuls of mix into a preheated pan, you may need to add coconut oil to the pan so the pancakes won’t stick
  6. When bubbles appear on the surface and edges become golden, flip and cook the other side
  7. Serve with nut butter, Yummee Gluten Free, of course and blueberries

Add blueberries, banana or other fruit to the mix, add 2-3 tablespoons of any Yummee Gluten Free nut butter to the mix, leave out or keep the fruit in and add about 3 tablespoons of raw cacao to the mix for a chocolate version.

Birregurra Festival and Art Show 20th Anniversary

In 2000, a brand-new festival in a tiny town at the foothills of The Otways was launched. Attracting around 500 visitors in its first year, it was created to lift the spirits of locals and give city dwellers a chance to experience the heart and soul of country life.

Birregurra Festival and Art Show is not-for-profit volunteer run event and is the major source of fundraising for local community groups in Birregurra. The Festival occurs in the town’s main street, in Birregurra Park, in and around Birregurra Hall and in properties adjacent to the main street. The festival has grown from humble beginnings into an important date on the state’s calendar attracting over 15,000 people from around the state.  Lauded for its affordability, it’s one of the few events in the state where families can enjoy a fun filled day out for little more than a gold coin donation each as the music program and many of the activities are free. Across the festival, local traders showcase their offerings and community groups such as the Primary School, Kindergarten, Football and Netball Club, Historic Society, Landcare, Lions Club, Tennis Club, Recreation Reserve and Men’s Motor Enthusiast group fundraise for their own activities.

On Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th of October this year, that same little volunteer run event, Birregurra Festival and Art Show, turns 20, with over 15,000 visitors expected to visit from all over the state of Victoria.
