اللَّهُمَّ إنَّكَ سألتَنَا مِن أنفُسِنَا مَالا نَمْلِكُهُ إلاّ بِكَ فاعْطِنَا مِنْهَا مَا يُرضيكَ عَنَّا
BARLEY CAKE with Molasses
Barley is the blessed grain Chosen by Allah for the Seal of Prophets (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam). Healing by Tibb-e-Nabawi foods is shared around 50 ~ 60 % by the blessed barley alone…….
You can have a variety of Barley recipes, all what needed is to fill your life with BARLEY. And if you stop wheat / rice & replace your carbohydrate source with Barley’s wonders, you will observe that the problem / diseases will start to disappear.
Barley bread (eaten with either dates or vinegar), Talbinah, Hais, Thareed (with barley bread), Saweeq drink (Sattu), barley soups, all these were prepared in the times of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam.
And when you are fond of cakes, we have to furnish a recipe for Barley cake.
Barley Flour as 500 grams, 4 whole eggs, 200 grams butter, Blackstrap Molasses as 250 ml, 2 cups water, date stones powder, Citron Zest, Flax seeds, red sesame, fennel, almonds, pumpkin seeds, melon seeds, cucumber seeds, etc. You may add some baking soda, but try to avoid Baker’s Yeast.
Blend them together in a food processor & add water slowly, cake dough is kept more moist & softer than a bread dough. Bake in the oven for 30 ~ 40 minutes till you feel that the cake is properly cooked.
You will be surprised to see the Chocolate color of this barley cake, obviously the color is reflected by Blackstrap Molasses, but the softness, the fiber & nutrition is from barley itself. You can serve the cake with QUINCE Preserve.
We have used BUTTER in this recipe, but it is better to replace it with Extra Virgin olive Oil, Butter is a saturated FAT but Olive Oil is the highest in Mon-unsaturated Fats, the best for your health.
Please keep in mind that combination of milk & eggs is discouraged by Tibb-e-Nabawi, so always make your cakes as :
- Either using milk only (eliminate the eggs )
- OR use water with eggs to make the dough
