Back to Breadmaking, Freebies and a Chance ...


I've slipped back into bread making very easily. 

Although there is still part of a sliced loaf in the freezer along with lots of the bargain yellow stickered buns and French sticks, I decided to get my hand in again with the homemade bread.  After all nothing beats a nice thick slice of buttered toast with a bowl of homemade soup for lunch.


Last week I mastered getting my buns to stay a little bit soft on top.   I simply draped a tea-towel over the buns as they cooled down on the wire rack and it worked a treat.


This was last weeks loaf and the two smaller loaves on the first photo are the ones I made the other day.  Now only a couple of slices of one of the loaves is left in the bread bin ... I never even got to photograph the two buns that I also made along with them, we ate them warm from the oven with our soup.


And the 'freebies and the chance' of the title ... well in the free |Tesco magazine I picked up the other day were these coupons (along with lots of others for things I have no use for).  The freebie is a cup of coffee from the Tesco café, I'll rarely say no to free coffee, and the chance is to win £100 in Tesco vouchers .... well someone has to win, I might as well offer my coupon up for scanning when I'm buying this weeks bottle of milk tomorrow!!

    1. Although they might be delicious they are totally out of my budget for this year.

  4. If you brush the top of your loaf/bun with butter or a similar product as soon as you pull it from the oven it stays nice and soft. I want to go bake bread now!

  5. I brush butter on the tops of bread/rolls as they come out of the oven too... keeps it soft!! I've been baking bread lately too.

    1. I start it off in the mixing bowl of my Kenwood and then knead and finish by hand.
