Baking no knitting!!

So 2 months into the New Year and I have not been knitting, I have 2 shawls on my needles I really need to finish and just even thinking about it seems daunting. I love knitting with natural light and there is not much of that at the moment and the flourescent lights in the flat just doesn't give me the light I need so I find myself straining my eyes to knit with the black yarn which both shawls are in. So I have been filling my time with bread making I have always wanted to bake my own fresh bread as I think the slice bread from the supermarket is tasteless and doesn't taste anywhere as nice as homemade bread. . I found this really tasty recipe for a Whole Wheat bread with honey and it is so gorgeous I would recommend anyone to give it a go. Simple Whole Wheat Bread.

So far I have done 3 half batches i.e. I cut the recipe in half. I also tried out a really nice Flapjacks recipe they are made from oats so they are almost a healthy snack. So here are a few pics of the finished yumminess.


First try at bread making.....

Second attempt.......

Most recent attempt........

Next on my list of breads to try is Brioche but I am yet to find a good recipe online with great reviews. So until I do I'll continue trying this one. Thanks for taking the time to read this post. Have a great day!
