Andrew's bread

Now Andrew is 13 he has a new chore - baking our morning fruit bread. He's been adding sultanas and dried apricots. I add linseeds and quinoa. It comes out perfect every time - two or three times a week.


  1. That looks and sounds great, Liz, and Andrew! Care to share that recipe?

  2. Well I preface this with - I have a breadmaker. I use (in order) 310ml water (10.5 liquid oz), 4 cups plain or bread flour. Can make half a cup of this wholemeal.
    Then a teaspoon of yeast, a glug (tablespoon) of oil - I use olive oil.
    And some spices to taste. We sometimes use lots, sometimes none at all.
    Then between 1 and 2 cups of something fruity/nutty. Every loaf is different. We add really whatever we have in the house. Dates, sultanas, currants, dried apricots, walnuts, pepitos, sunflower seeds, linseeds, quinoa.
