First Home-baked Bread for a While

Been busy, been away, been like a bee in a bottle. Whatever it is, I haven't baked bread for too long.

What a gorgeous day. Went to the pool for the water aerobics class, then got taken with a domestic urge. Lots of job-ettes and making the bread which is half and half strong white and wholemeal with a soft seed mix.

Kneaded and ready for proving.
Proof number one.  I love punching it
down to go again.

Slashed, proved again, ready for HOT oven
and shot of steam.


Time to cool but not too much, and ready for tea and a slice with raspberry jam or butter and Vegemite. Yes, the dreaded black stuff. Yum! Ever tried it swiped on green apples? Very good, even if an acquired taste.

Yumm-o!

Oh, and home plum jam is pretty good too. What a smarty!
Miles of smiles,
Ros.

breads looks perfect and would be tasting great like you say with butter, vege' or jam with cuppa. I haven't tried vegemite with green apple but an all time favourite is fresh bread sandwich with vegemite and lettuce.

Makes my mouth water - just looking at that bread. Sounds like you had a great few days camping. Shame it was cut short but if you enjoy every minute then any holiday is worth it. See you soon. Jenny B x
