   1tsp bread soda
   Pumpkin; sesame and sunflower seeds (small quantity of each)


WET INGREDIENTS:-
   1 egg
   1 tablespoon black treacle
   1 tablespoon olive oil
    pint buttermilk

1 tablespoon is 3 tea spoons

METHOD:-
Grease and flour a bread tin

Mix all the wet ingredients in a bowl; mix all the dry ingredients in a seperate bowl - and then mix the two lots together..........pour into the bread tin and bang into the oven.......wait..........wait...........wait.

180C oven;       gas mark 6;       
30 minutes in a pre heated oven stick with a skewer or sharp knife must be dry when removed; not sticky or damp.

Once cooked; remove from the tin (optional - wrap in a tea-towel )and allow cool.

Now this is a subject close to my heart.

Life is too short for Bad Coffee and bad Bread.

IN Oranjemund, I used to make bread for the family, Corn bread, rye bread, russian blackbread, health breads and a whole load of other ( Sweetpotato, tomato & cheese to name a few)

Since being in Cape Town, I have not had the opportunity ( Electric stove instead of the large gas stove I bought and took back to Omd)

My daughters still want me to make the Bacon & blue cheese bread I used to make when they were younger.

Try that some time, it comes out of the oven cools a little gets a bit of good butter & then it disapears - Really good

Clive, how about a recipe or two from you?  It will be great for the board, and a nice place to share one of the nice things in life - food!
Don't worry if it's not a health bread recipe, we'll just throw in an exercise regime on the next post to balance out!

I'm with you Clive especially on the bad coffee thing.  I spent three weeks in the US this year and not ONE good cup of coffee.  Have you tried Origins coffee shop here in CT - good stuff!  Please post the bacon & blue cheese recipe!

Never wrote any recipes down, just used my own judgement with quantities
( now I know why I had eight bread tins)

As long as I had the basic ingredients bread flour, a yeast that worked ( some of the SA yeasts were not that great) and what ever else I was adding I would make bread.
Have used Molasses, treacle, strong black coffee, Rye, Barley and even "Mohango" that is Millet which the Ovambo's grow, and is their staple, in making different breads.

Yes I followed recipes when I first started out, and still would if I want a specific type of bread.

For a Bacon & blue cheese bread , make up as for a standard white bread and before the final Rising work in pieces of cooked bacon and blocks of blue cheese, allow to rise, Paint top with an egg & milk wash pop into the oven bake & enjoy.

I will try to find some of the books I used and drop a few recipes if any one is interested.

Maybe it will give me the incentive to start again.

We were chatting earlier and I said to Cherie that I need to make time to test the Electric oven ( either that or make a Plaas oven outside)

Will be looking for supplies this saturday and trying to find the baking tins, hav'nt made bread since leaving Oranjemund.  The general price & quality of bread seems to be making it worthwhile to bake again.

I remember the Bakery in Oranjemund, Bertie Roetgen the German baker showed us kids around. Also how they made the various loaves, one of the breads they made for the Hostels was a small Brown loaf made with Peanut Butter added.

@ Mike S - BEER BREAD recipe:  (Easiest one - I have more, will post another later, but if you're looking for a beer recipe this early in the morning, I take it you're in a hurry!)

Ingredients:
750 ml Self-raising flour
250 ml Wholewheat flour
2 ml Salt
10 ml Sugar
75 ml Chopped parsley
340 ml Beer (at room temperature)
Sesame seed
(Can be added for variation: chopped herbs, crushed garlic or cheese)

Method:
Mix dry ingredients and parsley.  Add beer and mix until it forms a sticky dough. Put in greased 20x9x7 cm pan, level out on top and sprinkle with sesame seeds.  Bake at 180 degrees C for 70 minutes.  Turn out on wire mesh and let cool.  It doesn't go brown, but has a nice crust and can be toasted!

Does this mean the braai is back on for the week-end Stennie? Only if you make the bread!
