Learning how to Bake.

So I really enjoy the TV show “The Great British Bake-Off”¬†and this year have been tempted to give it a go myself.
Last weekend I bought the Paul Hollywood book “How to Bake” but before I delved into this I decided to try an Irish family favourite.
So I followed Darina Allen’s recipe from the “Ballymaloe Cookery Course” book.
The same recipe is available on her website at

Brown Bread

And here is the end result and it tastes very nice if I do say so myself!
