Bread!



Today was such a grey day that I needed to warm the place up a bit with a home-y smell. I baked bread ... oatmeal sunflower bread. I've made this bread before, but I played with the recipe a bit by decreasing the sunflower seeds and adding in some flaxseed ... I also used my brotform basket for the round loaf, hence the cute spiral design on the top of the loaf. I plan to freeze one loaf for our Christmas breakfast. The others will be gobbled up for morning toast over the next few days ... with butter ... and jam. Man cannot live by bread alone ... right?

What's smelling good in your kitchens this week?

  1. Those loaves look brilliant - you must be very pleased with how they turned out. And thanks so much for passing on the unplugged interview baton - I'll have to give some thought to those answers!

  7. IMPRESSIVE Susan - You bake like a pro Susan! I must get me one of those ribbed earthenware baking things but I have to get my electric stand mixer first :) Everything else must wait in line after that. As it stands it is a long ways away but I can always wish...
