No bread is an island

...entire of itself. (With apologies to John Donne!)
I live and breathe breadmaking. I’m an evangelist who would like everyone to make his or her own bread. I want to demystify breadmaking and show it as the easy everyday craft that it is. To this end I endeavour to make my recipes as simple and as foolproof as I possibly can.

I call my blog 'No bread is an island' because every bread is connected to another bread. So a spicy fruit bun with a cross on top is a hot cross bun. This fruit dough will also make a fruit loaf - or Chelsea buns or a Swedish tea ring...
I'm also a vegan, so I have lots of vegan recipes on here - and I'm adding more all the time.

6 for me and 6 for my wife
This pudding ticks all the boxes: we all know that a couple of squares a day of dark chocolate is good for us; it provides one of your five a day; and, with around a dozen small/medium strawberries it comes in at roughly 145 calories.

(If it serves 2, as it did today, that's less than 75 calories each!)

Combine this with a 250 calorie vegetable curry and 100g baked potato or similar, and you are well under 500 calories.

2 squares (20g) good quality dark chocolate
100g strawberries

Melt the chocolate - I find 1 minute in the microwave does the job.
Poke a skewer or the end of a teaspoon halfway through each strawberry
Dip it into the chocolate
Place the spoon and chocolate on a plate or similar
And repeat.

Try and wait until they're all done before sampling!
