    I am having a baking day today.
    Cheese cob loaf, sage bread buns, cheese and ham flan, and rhubard crumble.

    Hi. May I trouble you for the recipe for the sage bread buns. I tried a small loaf and buns on Saturday. The loaf was ok, but the buns were a bit hard.

    I am still undecided about whether to buy a breadmaker. Several discussions on here have given me a good idea about which make/model to buy depending on budget, but some have warned about the bread being too good leading to weight gain.

    Anyway, it would be nice to be able to make good bread by hand before considering whether to buy a machine.

    Hoping for two more NSDs before an early morning shop on Saturday.

    Hope everyone has sharpens the shopping lists this week.

    I use a breadmaker but just for the dough and jam settings. I don't like the bread made in it.

    Sage bread buns
    500g of bread flour, I use Lidls
    300ml of warm water
    pinch of salt
    tsp of sugar
    7g of dried yeast
    tbsp oil
    tbsp of dried sage. It is also nice with mixed herbs.

    Mix everything together in a bowl and cover for 30 minutes, knock back then shape on to a baking tray then leave until doubled in size.
    Bake according to your oven, I do mine on 180 degrees for 16 minutes.
    If you want them softer wrap straight in cling film or even a carrier bag when they come out. If you like them crispy leave to cool on a rack.
    I make 10 with it.

    Enjoy them but they are so nice I eat too many of them like you said.:o

  • Ald! Today then Ice*and parted with £34.00 sending total spent so far this month to £41-54

    If anyone is interested Ice*and have 4 tins of Heinzzz beans for £2.00 plus 2 free tins in the pack so 6 tins for £2 - although the price ticket by them said £2-50 they go through at £2 so brought two lots. Sorry if you already know.

    Got given a few free tomatoes and also a few runner beans which will come in useful. :)

    Should have gone to the shops today but did my ironing instead and a bit of sewing,shops can wait till tomorrow nothing too urgent needed as yet.
  • I tried the pork, mustard and cider recipe from the index last night. Had it with crushed new pots with spring onions, carrots and runner beans from the in laws garden.

    Quite lucky as they are on holiday and we are looking after the plants and cats so we can have any produce we like. Going to have to go and have a rummage as my partner is rubbish at that. Never mentions whats there! But as it takes him an hour just to water the 'outside plants' maybe it's too long to list!
