Swirly Butterfly Pea with Honey Buttered Oat Sourdough

Updated: Jun 7

Am intrigued by the colour of butterfly pea flower every time and I wonder how would it turned out to be, if I used it to make sourdough? To answer my curiosity, I did some experiments with various ingredients. Buttered oat porridge matched the contrast and taste to my liking, and the result was mesmerising!

Delighted by the result! <3
