Once or twice a week I like to bake something with my 2 year old son. He loves mixing, cracking eggs and, of course, licking the bowl. We originally baked this gorgeous buckwheat loaf to have with breakfast one weekend. This delicious bread is so good it is now the only bread we eat! We bake a loaf every Sunday.

Love peanut butter? Here’s an interesting recipe which uses peanut butter as well as buckwheat flour in baking bread. This is the first time i’ve come across peanut butter bread. I think topping it with the chocolate sauce spread is a wonderful idea! This looks absolutely incredible. A must try recipe!

Its new years eve and I’m already getting started on my new years resolution, to get back into baking my own bread, I baked a couple of basic white baguette shaped loaves. The house smells amazing, I probably look a bit like a weirdo sitting at my laptop smelling a piece of bread, but there is nothing like the smell of freshly baked bread. One of the best memories of my childhood was baking cottage loaves with my dad, even if the bread doesn’t turn out fantastic its a lovely experience to bake it yourself, and even stodgy loafs, when fresh out the oven smell divine!
