|Joan at work|
|Two smug bakers!|
Two days of rain meant an opportunity to bake without the guilt of postponing garden work! Joan did crumpets and a caraway seed cake and I made a rye and caraway loaf. Anything involving yeast takes ages so there was plenty of time for a cake while the crumpet batter was standing and the bread dough rising! Joan's crumpets were a real joy and delight to cook and eat. The results were perfect in every way. We decided that oiled metal crumpet rings were far superior to the flexible silicone ones I had bought. Joan's cake was perfect in texture and flavour and, was also a fab bright yellow colour in contrast with the golden top.

As for my bead: very artisan in appearance but nevertheless, a great flavour and texture. Another baking session success! More photos
