  • Hi bjajun, yes I have

    Hi bjajun, yes I have increased the cooking temp to 95C for the icing.

    Should have been higher as cornflour does not thicken at 80C.

  • I had only marginal success

    I had only marginal success with this.  The taste was great, the base turned out well, but the top layer did not set very well.  I am wondering if extra time cooking the cornflour & coconut milk might help.

  • Hi Yeahright0! Buckwheat

    Submitted by Thermo Nutritionist on 1. February 2016 - 16:50.

    Hi Yeahright0!

    Buckwheat groats are whole or 'grains' of buckwheat. Buckwheat is not a grain or a careal, but a seed from a plant. Oficial term is 'groats'. Funny word, huh!

    You can use buckwheat flour in the recipe as well but the groats give it a nice crunch.
