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.

The other day, looking for something sweet to have after dinner, I made some flour and water pancakes. For my wife I included some sultanas - but my daughter doesn't like dried fruit, so I thought I'd try sweetening the batter with a little sugar.

4 dessertspoons self raising flour
2 dessertspoons sugar
About 8 dessertspoons of water.

Mix into a creamy batter, then add spoonfuls to a medium hot frying pan with a little oil.

Result! My daughter thought they were fantastic, so I had to make more.
