    Sweet Summerfruit Olive Oil Cake recipe by Nicki Wicks

    The sweetness of the fruit and the savoury richness of extra virgin olive oil makes this the most wonderful summer cake.

    I’ve happily served it warm for dessert or it’s kept for days as the perfect cake to eat with a cuppa.

    Makes one 20 cm cake

    3-4 ripe peaches or nectarines, sliced

    1 cup extra virgin olive oil

    1/2 cup + 2 tbsps extra sugar

    2 large eggs

    1 1/3 cups plain flour

    ½ tsp baking powder

    Pinch baking soda

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C or 160 fan bake. Grease a 20x20cm square cake tin and line with baking paper.
    2. Toss nectarines with ¼ cup of the olive oil and 2 tbsps sugar. Leave to sit for 10 minutes.
    3. In a bowl whisk eggs with remaining ½ cup sugar until pale and thickened. Whisk in remaining olive oil. Sift in flour, baking powder and baking soda and stir until combined. Fold in fruit mixture and juices. Scrape batter into tin and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
    4. Leave to cool before removing from tin.

    Maori Bread

    Maori Bread

    Rewena Paraoa is a traditional Maori sourdough potato bread. It is made with a potato starter or “bug’’, that ferments and causes the bread to rise and gives it its unique flavour. I read that making Rewena can take years to truly master and because it is made with a completely natural starter bug I did find it quite challenging. Makes 1 loaf.


    1 cup Potato, diced
    2 teaspoons sugar
    4.5 cups plain flour
    1 cup wholemeal flour
    3 teaspoons foodies flaky sea salt or foodies manuka smoked flaky sea salt


    1. Boil the potato in 2 cups of water then leave to cool, do not add salt. Add sugar and half a cup of the flour, then use a potato masher to form a batter. Place in a large Agee jar and cover with a clean tea towel. Leave in a warm spot for 24 hours so it starts to ferment. It should be bubbling furiously and almost double in size when it is at its peak, this is when you need to make your bread dough.
    2. For the bread, measure the remaining plain flour and wholemeal flour into a bowl. Add the potato bug, an additional 200ml of water, salt and knead by hand or with a machine for 8 minutes until it is silky and supple in appearance and in feel.
    3. Place bread dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a clean tea towel and allow to prove in a warm spot until double in size. This may take up to 4 hours.
    4. Heat oven to 230 degrees celsius. Gently tip bread dough out on to a baking tray, lightly dust with flour then cut slits across the top. Place in the oven with two ice cubes on the baking tray (this will help it rise).
    5. Bake for 35 minutes then reduce the temperature to 210 degrees celsius for a further 10 minutes. It is cooked when the crust is dark golden brown and it will sound hollow when tapped on the base.

    Pikopiko Pesto

    Pikopiko Pesto

    You’ll love the modern twist of this delicious spread, which is quick and easy to make. For times when fresh pikopiko ferns are hard to come by, use
    the powdered form.  Here's
     a tip: Fresh pikopiko fiddlehead fern tips turn from green to brown if not stored properly, but using the pikopiko powder means the pesto lasts much longer in the fridge. Makes 115g and takes 10 minutes

    115g sunflower seeds
    2 tsp pikopiko powder
    ½ cup foodies extra virgin olive oil
    pinch of foodies flaky sea salt

    In a pan lightly toast the sunflower seeds in 1 teaspoon of the oil until slightly brown. Keep an eye on the pan as the seeds are notoriously quick to burn. Should this happen, toss the burnt seeds to the birds and start the process again.As soon as the seeds are done, remove them from the pan and set them aside.
    Use a stick blender or mortar and pestle to blend the seeds,pikopiko powder and oil until the pesto reaches the consistency you prefer. 
    Add seasoning to taste.

    Serving ideas:
    Pikopiko pesto is perfect with bread and crackers.
    Try piling the pesto on top of grilled steak or pasta dishes for a dash of difference
