    I think we'll have to agree to disagree on that one... :laugh:

    It's in one of my wife's veggie cookbooks (for halloumi burger in a brioche bun). I'll look it out for you when I get home.

    @benb Sorry for the delay, I've taken the shortcut of posting a picture of the recipe as I'm too lazy to type it out. You should be able to read it okay, if not let me know.

    Eat these on the day of baking or the day after, unless you store them in an airtight tub. I hope you like them.

    Thanks, @glasgowcyclist I'll give those a go.

    My latest loaf was the one made with sour cream linked earlier.
    Except I ran out of white flour, so mine is with about a third white flour and two-thirds wholemeal. Really nice. Possibly 5 minutes too long in the oven.

    Delicious cake.
    I baked it for 45 minutes at 170°C

    Did you all eat it as it was or did you put any icing on or spread anything on the slices?

    I tried it with some butter yesterday, but it doesn’t need it tbh.

    20% Wholemeal, 80% White, expected to be 100% delicious...

    If I could have let it cool down I would have but, presented with the combination of warm, crusty and buttery, I hadn't the power to resist.

    There's nothing like warm bread freshly out of the oven. One of my earliest and fondest memories of my childhood is the baker's van arriving at the farm gate. The baker would always give us a chunk of a loaf he kept for that purpose, warm and crunchy, ... Uhm, I am going to have to bake some bola now.

    A 'Pane alle Nocciola' (a hazelnut bread). After weeks of looking, I finally found a packet of ground toasted hazelnuts a couple of days ago. I also added a small amount of molasses. The crumb is actually slightly browner than the photos suggest. I'm very pleased with this - it's a keeper

    I’m experimenting with this recipe. As I type baking in the oven is this basic mixture, but instead of banana, I’ve added grated orange peel, orange curd in the mixture, then chopped up the orange flesh and put on top of the mixture in the tin.

    I shall report back.

    I look forward to the result.

    I made another at the weekend (enjoying a piece right now) and meant to put in some roughly chopped walnuts but forgot. Will try next time.
