Cookie, that looks very tasty.  If you didnít even have 1 mouthful to try it yourself you have great willpower.

You obviously have some good eaters in your place with all the baking you do Katie.

This is the fruit loaf I was having problems with. Itís apparently Hungarian and is called an Almond and Cranberry Beigl. DD and DH tell me it is very nice.
That looks really interesting, Cookie.  Did you follow a recipe or use your baking instincts to make it?

Marina I saw the recipe in the Womenís Weekly Food magazine. I Ďthermomixedí it. I had trouble with the dough as I felt it was too dry, so I added a bit of milk to it and finally things turned out well.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I donít have the luxury of a steam oven and know the benefits of steam in developing a good crust.  I wrecked my previous oven by placing a dish of water in bottom of the oven, but it did produce a good crust.
I can get a good crust by baking in a cast iron pot but sometimes I want to bake bread in a tin without a lid.
I recently read that if you soak Lava rock ( scoria ) and then place it in the bottom of the oven, it will slowly release steam.
I will let you know how it goes.
