Great British Bake Off – Bagels

Great British Bake Off – Bagels

After olympics, I think a lot of us are feeling lost. The drama, the tears, the competition, the proud moments of qualifying/winning… I find it almost impossible to go back to normal night time TV programmes. BUT, after watching last week’s GBBO, I think all […]

Cheese Rolls (Tiger Rolls)

Cheese Rolls (Tiger Rolls)

Our daily bread is 90% a simple white loaf from our bread machine (shame face). But once in a while, I sort of feel like I should be more creative with my bread, so I’d spend ages trawling through books to find a fancy recipe, […]

Fresh From the Oven August Challenge – Courgette Bread

Wow I can’t believe I missed so many Fresh From the Oven Challenges!!! I need to give myself less excuse and get on with it, even though that might mean having to stay up till 12 at night to wait for my loaf to come […]

Banana and Coconut Loaf

Ashleigh’s gone to bed. James putting things on eBay. It’s 2 o’clock and all these surely means I have to make a tea time treat! We have lots of bananas left in the fruit bowl due to Ash’s demand for them, so banana cake is […]

Fresh From the Oven January Challenge – Khrushchev dough

This month has been quite a busy month in my kitchen since it was Ashleigh’s birthday and it will be Chinese New Year on the 3rd of February, so I’m planning to cook loads of food for that. And I did think about skipping this […]

Seedy White Loaf

Seedy White Loaf

I know it’s cheap and easy to buy bread from supermarket, but there’s something about baking a loaf of bread by hand that is really satisfying. Today I made a loaf of seedy white bread, it’s good for sandwiches and toasts, I normally make it […]
