Bermaline bread
« on: August 31, 2023, 09:01:57 am »
Hubby was over helping our elderly friend today, as he does each week. He came home with 3 Bermaline bread tins. They are different and apparently the bread was cooked so that it had a flat top. It used malt and wheaten grain and was quite heavy. I've been reading up about it and have become quite fascinated. I THINK it was around the 1930's or so.
I was wondering if anyone had heard of it? DH is going to clean them up and I plan to try and make some. I'm doing lots of googling and reading.

Cookie, how fascinating. Letís know how you go. Iíve get an old recipe that I used to make a malt loaf with. I think it came from the 1950 s.

Weíre all waiting with bated breath to see how your loaf/loaves work out cookie. You enjoy a challenge so will surely rise to the occasion.

Cookie Iíll be interested to see how you go.
The loaf that I made that included rolled oats and marmalade and dried sour cherries was lovely in both flavour and texture. It is a very  good alternative loaf for a fruit loaf. Iíll make it again but in the TMX and oven, not the bread machine. To see how it goes.

It sounds delicious Chookie. I love sour cherries. I usually get mine at Costco with dried blueberries, pineapple, mango and any other different dried fruits they have.

We were looking at the tins yesterday. DH hasn't cleaned them up yet. He said he will sand blast them for me, then I will oil them and pop them into the oven.
