I have a recipe for fruit loaf (Delias') I think ,I'll find it out for you, it sounds great, it's got mashed potato in, sounds odd I know yet it works.

A good site to visit for lots of fruit breads, malt loaf, bara birth, tea loaf and many more is called "Irish Abroad", has many different versions to try & lots of tasty dishes to try, just 'google' it, it's worth a look, oh and they have malt loaf!

Good Luck, let us all know when you've found the best loaf!

You'll get a shock when we all arrive in a bus load to sample!......lol  devil wave

I found a nice recipe for Spelt bread on the Dove Farm website.  You need to search for Spelt flour on their recipes page and read the comments below re: doubling the amount of salt and baking on a gluten free setting.  (If you don't have a gluten free setting, use a Basic Fastbake setting).  Good Luck!  We love this bread.


First of all welcome, I hope that you enjoy this forum/site as much as I do.  There are all lovely people, have great ideas, fun, laughter and will always answer queries. I'm sure that you will gain as much pleasure as I do from being on here and I shall look forward to your posts on the site.

I too swear by 'spelt flour'  (Doves), it's really good and it imparts a 'nuttiness & flavour' of it's own to breads.  I make Irish Soda Bread every day, always using 'Doves Spelt flour', wouldn't be without it.  Yes, their website is good and very informative, it's interesting to read up on and well worth a visit.

Good to hear from you,

OdelleS.wave

once lost my motorbike keys for 3 weeks, hid them when we went on hols (so step son couldn't use the bike) and couldn't remember where I hid them when we got back - did the same with the shotgun cupboard keys (for same reason).

no hadn't even been drinking...or maybe I had, we'd have been on a cruise for 2 weeks, as that's the only sort of hol we've done for the past 10 years, apart from the odd (very odd) ski trip.

I use a bread machine to mix every type of loaf not just bread machine recipes,but bake everything in the oven.

My oat bread:- 400 ml luke warm water ,1/2 tsp sug, 6 oz porridge oats, 18 oz bread flour, 1 tsp salt and 1oz fresh yeast. I started off with 355 ml water but was too dry, this is quite  wet mix as a wetter mix makes lighter bread, oil your hands to move it around  as its easier than flouring. I bake at 200 degs until bread done(depends on your oven)

Janet: Ditto my bread machine however as I am a bit like a refugee at the moment I am getting withdrawal symptoms. I have just looked back over this thread and can see that a friend loaned you her machine, but which one did you buy in the end ?

Mine also has a jam function on it but I have not used it as I tend to do that part of the business if I am making marmalade in my slow cooker and if it's jam, and I have only made plum, apricot and cherry I tend just to just do it in one hit on the hob.
