I have never made as many SD loaves as I made yesterday and today. They are for 2 SD workshops I am having at home and one at the Creswick market. I know I can’t prepare enough ‘samples ‘ for all classes so am baking ahead.
I am/ have made 6 bread sticks, olive, fruit and plain.  One plain loaf in cast iron pot, 16 hot X buns.
Will make another lot of Hot X buns nearer to time.

Still lovely weather here. Cool evenings and mornings but 25/26 during the day. Warming up to 28 on Thursday. I hope it rains rather soon as we aren’t permitted to use sprinklers for June/July and August. It could mean a lot of time standing holding the hose to keep the garden alive.

Margaret your sponge looks beautiful, especially with the strawberries and cream.
Chookie the sponge a Mum from your last school used to make sounds delicious.
I made some of Tenina’s Seeded Crackers and also a Madeira Cake with squished, defrosted berries in it.

So were you happy with the CWA recipe Margaret? It rose beautifully.

Mab, I love a nice sponge.  Yours looks beautiful. I have never made a traditional sponge. ! My mum made the best. When I wanted something special for a colleague, I would ask mum to make one.
A mother at my last school would make me a sponge with toffee and sliced almonds on top. She would slice the top off and then cut it into 8 triangles and set these into cream on top.
Lamb rack for dinner.

I also watched the wedding - I thought the American pastor was a hoot!  Meghan and Harry both looked so happy and they are a very close couple already.

I have decided to try and find a new sponge recipe.  I haven't been happy with my usual one since I have had this stove.  Today's effort is from a CWA recipe.,

Good morning everyone.  Cold and wet again.

I enjoyed the wedding too and thought Meghan looked lovely.
