What kinds of bread shall you be making?

The Fruity Cook said...

Probably something seasonal in relation to Hallow'een. Have you discovered barm brack yet?

DaviMack said...

Barm brack? Nope! Googling now... huh! Looks mightily like fruitcake, except that, in my world, fruitcake involves quantities of alcohol rather than tea. :)

I figure I'll probably want to do some fruitcakes, so that they've time to age properly before Christmas.

Welcome, then, to our World. The Irish are the greatest consumers of tea on the Planet. We use it for everything, including making a compress for a sore eye. We, or at least we used to, eat the most chocolate, per capita.

I rummage for a very good Tea Brack Recipe which I used make when we liked sweeter breads. It's wonderful on cold Winter mornings, as you will appreciate in time.

Hope the gloves finally arrived. They are essential when cycling.

Should read "I'll rummage..."

No gloves - but we're enjoying the sweet breads we've made, and they're almost gone! Something about the colder weather seems to call out for carbohydrates. It's strange.

I'll be certain to try your recipe, should you post it. Along with my gloves should be coming several pounds of tea. :)
