    Inspired by the Great British Baking Show.
    During one of the episodes they had a German Schichttorte/Baumkuchen (layer cake/treecake) which we love and consume a lot when in Germany. inspired by the recipe we baked our own. Not bad for the first attempt but room for improvement.

    File these under How I Spent My Pandemic.

    100% whole grain bread (we actually bought a grain grinder), banana bread, whole grain peanut butter cookies.

    I bake once a week on Saturday. Usually just some wholegrain buns for breakfast like these with spelt and emmer flour. Probably pretty close to bread that was baked in Europe 3000-4000 years ago

    Agree, great idea for a thread. I would post but whatever we bake gets eaten way to quickly! :oops:

    There are so many fascinating threads on this forum.

    I am inspired to make pasty/borek - perhaps this week.

    Doing a lot of cooking but have not attempted bread. These pics give me reason to give it a shot.
