Making your own bread at home is one of the most satisfying and rewarding things that you can do, if only because of the smell! However, a lot of people are intimidated by bread: it involves scary things like yeast, kneading and proving. However, by following a few simple rules, making bread is one of the most straightforward things you can do.
Growing up, my Mum taught me a lot I now know about cooking. She’d have this amazing cook book which she’d actually gotten when she first started secondary school in the late 1960s. One of the recipes I used to love making was the apple scones! They are for sure the recipe which would remind me of my Mum as they’re the favourite thing she used to (and still does) bake for us.
I really loved making peppermint bark in the Winter/at Christmas time and though that it would be fun to make something more Spring like for this time of the year. Now I’m not religious, but of course you could call this Easter bark since next weekend is in fact Easter – it has come around very quickly for me this year even though I knew it would be early!
