But wet weather is perfect baking weather...and Oli (who is the head baker in our house) has been busy whipping up these beauties:
We generally make all of our own bread - once you have mastered it (which took us a good two years to get to the point of making reliably nice bread every time) I don't think you ever look back. But lately, since I have been on a massive tiny-bridesmaid-dress-induced-diet we have had a few bread free weeks. So it was nice, if a little guilty pleasure, to saw the end off the long loaf and scoff it with butter while it was still warm. Mmmm.
We use the River Cottage basic loaf recipe - although we vary the ingredients depending on what we have - this time a handful of linseeds went in and Oli used 50% wholemeal. Delish.
