Rather than a withered carrot or two I thought I would take these
in :)

The plaited loaf is Wheels own soft roll recipe, but I cut the water from 120ml to 50ml so I could manipulate the dough. I egg washed it before going in the oven. The slashed loaf is a wholemeal using flour from my local mill, and the seeded one is the oak smoked malt blend spotted at Waitrose recently.

Curing is not an exact science... So it's not a sin to bin.

Fabulous! You will have to consider changing your footnote. Is the beer for the vicar?

Cheers

I don't know John, I dropped them off at school this morning to go on the table, and by this afternoon the teachers and children had devoured the lot :lol: (I did say they could) So I assume that is positive feedback :D

I'll see if I get any comments from the staff tomorrow when I see them.

Thanks!!

My favourite was the smoked malty one,

That's the one in the glass, by the way :wink:

(Yukon Brown Smoked Ale carries a deep delicious chocolate nutty flavour rounded off with a hint of smoke)

The headmistress came over to me this morning to tell me what fabulous bread I'd made and how skillful I was 8)
