Hope, I've been meaning to answer your snake bread query - and keep forgetting!

One of my students, Matt, at the care home where I work on Thursday mornings, whatever bread we're making , always wants to shape it like a snake. He also has an obsession with curry, so that almost every bread he makes has a dessertspoon or two of curry powder in it.

If you look at my daily bread posts and search for "Matt", you'll see many versions of a curried snake bread. He's a lovely guy, really enjoys the breadmaking - and always washes up after the session - but it's not easy to get him to make something else.

Cheers, Paul

Today I have some brown bread on the go. It will be in the oven in about an hour.

I may make some Spelt Crackers later. They go down well here. Much better than digestives. Although they do have a lot of butter in them..........

No problem! :)

It's a Dan Lepard recipe that I found in the Guardian.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/ ... pes-lepard


I've also made the polenta crackers, but they need to be fresh and they go soft quickly, so I have to put them in the oven for a minute or two before use, even it they are kept in a tin. So I tend to make the spelt and oatmeal crackers more often.

I gloss the crackers with Lakeland Egg Spray and then sometimes I sprinkle on some topping. Usually sesame or flax seed.

yesterday - another spelt pan rustico. Due to a slight misreading of the recipe, I skipped the first prove. Just kneaded, shaped, proved and then backed. But it's still a fantastic loaf. I reckon you don't need 2 proves with this one (although that may just be because I use spelt). I only started eating it today and already, somehow, half of it has gone! :oops:

an experimental apple and blackberry strudel today. I had a piece of Paul's recipe homemade pasta left and wondered if it'd work instead of filo. It sort of did, but needs a bit of work (especially on the folding part). OK, I admit it rather fell to pieces, but it still tasted nice! (according to everyone else, I was too stuffed after the lasagne, but there's a bit left over which I'll have tomorrow.) Definitely one to work on.

I started out making a dried apricot and walnut loaf for OH's lunchbox but then spotted an opened pack of prunes so used those instead of the apricots and then decided walnuts wouldn't work so added a bit of vanilla and a tiny shake of cinnamon. OH has declared it delicious and has said the prune bits taste like fudge!

#1 son made some little plum pies after school today. I mostly just supervised and leant a hand when needed. He loved it! they are a bit wonky and overflowed, but he's very pleased with himself and enjoyed the fruits of his labour! I love letting him get on with bakimg by himself. Next time I might write out the recipe and get him to read it too (he's onlky 5, so still quite new to reading!)

That's lovely to hear, Hope - I really enjoy reading your stories about baking with your children!

This morning I made a dozen bread rolls using the no-knead method - started it yesterday morning.

Made a dozen GF scones tonight, in response to a request from a local cafe - and a GF loaf from Andrew Whitley's Bread Matters.

Haven't tried the loaf yet - I want to take it into the cafe intact, tomorrow.

However, despite me making a real cock-up with the flour to liquid ratio with the scones, they've turned out quite nice!

I shall stick the recipes, with links and pics, on the GF post on my blog shortly.

Cheers, Paul

apple and almond cake with some of the apples I picked at the weekend. I had to make it when #1 son was at school or he'd probably refuse to eat it after seeing the state of some of the apples (some of which had residents!)

Last night I made a vegan chocolate cake:



in the microwave. It's very odd - after about 8 minutes partly on full power partly on 50%, the middle of the top stubbornly refused to set.

I even inserted a skewer horizontally about 1cm down from the top - and it came out clean.

In the end (since I was freezing it in 50g chunks) I cut out the circle of cake and did that for another minute on full power - and finally it was cooked.

I'm afraid only about 400g made it into the freezer - and the whole cake generally weighs about 700g!

Then this morning I've made 2 large spicy naans:



for my breakfast for the next couple of weeks.

I love the sound of your fruit naans Paul. Must try that next time we have curry.

Today, pizzas and a small loaf (possibly "splat" would be a better word as it's not held its shape) of spelt bread.

Em - I need to make some of those. what recipe did you use?

#1 son and I have been baking again - lemon drizzle cake. his favourite! i even let him crack the eggs today - normally i'm too much of a control freak to let him!

looking back at this thread it amazes me how often i do bake something!

Hope, I got the idea reading Paul's blog. I then had a look at a few other recipes and they all seemed to be a standard dough just like I'd use to make pizza.

After proving, I just shaped into rolls, then bagels by sticking my finger through the middle and twirling them round. Rested for 10 mins then poached for a minute each side before egg washing, topping with sesame seeds and baking at 200 for 20 mins. Soooo easy!

Last night I made a variation on my banana and walnut tea loaf by swapping the walnuts for some mixed nuts which I'd baked with sugar and salt and had been sat in a jar on my shelf. Yum!

I made a tea loaf earlier - possibly the nicest I've ever tasted

Made 2 plum pies yesterday and a few days ago made Pan Rustico again! but this time I divided the mixture to make 2 small loaves, one went in the freezer which I used earlier today, having crisped it up in the oven first- it was delicious :chops:

Hope - if your son enjoys baking then encourage him. When my son was younger he too helped me to make cakes, although he disappeared when the washing up needed doing. He makes very good sponge cakes - apparently - as I've never seen one he's made, he hasn't made me any! :lol: He's also good at making chocolate & caramel slice.

Thanks Elaine. I usually make it when he's at school. He does help me knead (we take it in turns or do half the dough each, then swap every now and again) when I make bread and he's around. He was too tired after school to help make the flatbreads for dinner last night, so he opted to just watch. He was quite fascinated though!

yesterday 8 banana muffins. 4 with mixed spice and raisins, 4 with chocolate, 2 of which also had chopped hazelnuts in.

Not sure if it's because I've got sinusitis (again) or because i bought the cheapest cocoa powder, but i can't taste the chocolate! :(

4 pizzas - 1 potato and cheese (for my wife who doesn't like tomatoes) and 3 normal vegan ones. These were topped with a mix of mushroom pate, pesto, hummus and tomato puree - plus a splash of tamari sauce, some dried herbs, 1/4 tsp chilli powder and a dessertspoon of nooch.

Oh, plus mushrooms and tomatoes (on mine).

yesterday i made a rather scrummy apple crumble with some scrumped apples. really intense apple flavour. topped with a mixture of equal parts of butter, oats, ground almonds and gluten free flour, plus a bit of cinnamon. not traditional, but i found it works! and the apples are sweet enough that it doesn't need any extra sweetener in the crumble. yum. will make some custard to go with it later.

Yesterday, we had homemade pizza for tea. I made extra dough and shaped into bagels but didn't really have time to cook them so have left them, covered up, until today. Am going to poach and bake as normal later and see hoe they turn out.

Tomorrow is planned bake day for me... We are doing MacMillan Coffee Morning(s) from Wednesday to Friday this week as people are in and out of the office on Friday when it's supposed to be.

Hope... they were rubbish! They just went flat after being out for so long so they had to be binned!

I made some more last night though for our Macmillan coffee morning(s)... I made some sundried tomato & olive ones and some cranberry, cinnamon & orange ones. Had a cranberry one for my breakfast and it was lovely. Might toast one of the others later!

I'm gonna do a bit more baking tonight too - brownies, cupcakes and something with the one over ripe banana which i have.

I also baked for the Macmillan coffee morning over the past two evenings - made a batch of chocolate orange oat cookies, a chocolate and almond fudge cake, mocha buns and coconut jam buns. We raised over £50! :tu: :D

Hi Teri, Delia's is about as good as it gets for traditional English Christmas cakes. :D

then you have to store it properly, and feed it

As for marzipanning and icing - of course that comes nearer Christmas time.
