There's nothing better than a good fresh loaf of bread and some quality butter........sepecially when the bread only came out of the oven 20 mins earlier or so.

My breadmaker is one of the best things i've bought. So easy. Can also set the timer and have a fresh loaf ready for when you get up in a morning.

Our usual Sunday breakfast is home made granary tosted with smoked salmon and poached eggs. Accompanied by a good cup of coffee made on a proper commercial espresso machine with beans I roasted myself less than 3 days or so ago. Nom, nom, nom.......

Can't beat it.....bet it would rival anything of Gordon Ramsays!

It always amazed me how clean the bread maker stays.....i thought they'd be a nightmare to clean before i bought one.

This weekend I made bread in a dutch oven on TOP of my log burner, and it rose and looked like a fluffy flat bread.

I made the dough as normal then for its second rise I put it in greased baking paper. While it was rising I had the dutch oven warming up so it was upto heat (don't ask me how hot.. I've no idea!)
Then I transfered the baking paper and dough into the dutch oven, put the lid on and left it for @ 40 mins or so.....then I took the bread out put more baking paper over the top and flipped it over before returning it to the duch oven. This means the top (now the bottom) will also brown.

Loads of ideas for making bread in a dutch oven outside, but they all invloved putting coles on top of the lids, but this way worked well enough and is useful to know if you have a power cut and have run out of bread Smile
