  1. Hmm this was so easy and very tasty. I did not add to the recipe. I tried it plain – yum, with butter, even yummier and a used a buttered piece to mop up the juices of a leftover nannys braised steak i’d reheated for lunch. This really is a winner. I can see how it could be added to for a savoury side to a main meal (ie per the suggestions in the recipe) . I will also try some later/tomorrow with jam or honey, for the sweet aspect. It will rock. Being lazy, I used oil spray instead of baking paper…this produced a very crusty bottom and edge (which I like) but when I do this again i will use baking paper to see the difference in texture. Overall, I recommend you give this a go. I used a 3.5. Thanks Sherrie Sutcliffe

  2. My husband made this bread today and it is yummy. He is very pleased with himself, worth the bottle of beer!!! He found it very ease to make and the smell when it was baking was delightful. Thank you Sherrie for a terrific recipe !!
