So I have a sack of beremeal that is good until May, but also buttermilk that is expiring now. So on Friday I made Jeremy Lee’s beremeal treacle soda bread to go along with our own grilled pork chops and corn on the cob for dinner. Here it is out of the oven.
I wasn’t sure Tom would like it, but we both loved it. I still had buttermilk though so I decided to also make Orkney Beremeal and Oat Farmhouse Loaf. This took an hour to bake so wasn’t ready until after dinner. Here it is out of the oven.
So this bread is even better. It is amazing. But sadly there was still some buttermilk left that I had to toss, and I used up the last of my Golden Syrup. But I still have Black Treacle and Beremeal for more baking adventures for another month.
Now the obligatory Ryeleigh photos: here is my view coming home from work this morning (after driving by daffodil fields on the way home). Tom was holding her so she wouldn’t get through the gate when I opened it into our busy road.
Here is a closer view. She wanted to greet me so badly.
But I received an excellent beagle welcome as soon as the gate was closed. Happy Sunday to all!
