The past couple of weeks sales – plus the on line box sales – and the giving away with jumper / coat sales = not much on the tray. Jeepers – my bad – wowzer – you love my treats.
Thank you soooo much for your faith in Posh Dog Bakes.
This week I have baked 2 different bakes every night all week to catch up with my boxes – which you can find HERE – and to refill general shop stock – and we have the Comic Fest in the town next weekend so I thought I had better get ahead!!!
This week I have baked twice a night – and come to a firm decision about size! From now on I will be ditching my larger size cutters – and just using the smaller size ones. It does take longer to cut them out – but they bake better, they handle better, and they post better.
We are almost totally gluten free now – which is a huge step. The labels are now fully in conformance – and we have introduced a colour coding system so you can see instantly what is gluten free – vegetarian – dairy free. The production system has been refined and is working really well.
Now available in box sets HERE
This week I thought I would experiment with buckwheat flour. It is gluten free – and I want to be able to offer that option.
It is a really fine, light flour – and I missed the bran roughage of the wholemeal flour. I obviously could not add a bit of bran – so I added some oatmeal. Technically oats are Gluten free – but because they are grown / processed along side wheat – they are at risk of cross contamination and you can’t call them that. Long term I need to find some sort of roughage to add instead of the oats.
The buckwheat makes a really light, crisp biscuit – which my 2 little testers liked!
As it’s Alfie’s birthday this week I have 2 special bakes for you.
I have made Cheese and Bacon Treats – with whole meal flour – Cathedral cheddar – streaky bacon from Lee @ Watson & Woollard round the corner – and free range eggs from K.A.N.
And for a sweet treat – we have ‘Banoffee’ cookies. Baked with whole meal flour – fresh bananas – Dogs can’t have toffee or sugar – so I have used organic honey from K.A.N. – olive oil – along with free range egg.
Well Alf is impressed!!!
