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.

After a demo from me, all the children made a simple bread dough made from 1 mug of flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/3rd mug lukewarm water and 1 teaspoon yeast.

Once the dough was made, and I'd demonstrated a few shapes, the children set to work. I have to say that this was one of the most creative groups of children I'd worked with. Here are the results:
