Paula Brennana Traditional brown soda......Ingredients 250g wholemeal flour 200g plain white flour 1 teasp. bread soda, sieved 1 teasp. salt 1 egg 350ml buttermilk, approx. 1 teasp. Honey Optional Topping: 1 tablesp. sesame seeds or pinhead porridge oats To Cook Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6, 200°C (400°F). Mix the flour, bread soda and salt together in a bowl. Combine the egg with the buttermilk and honey then mix into the flour. Add a little more buttermilk if the mixture is dry – it should be a soft dough. Then pour the lot into a lightly oiled loaf tin. Sprinkle the sesame seeds or porridge oats over the top of the loaf if using. Bake for 45-50 minutes. To know when it is cooked simply tap the bottom of the loaf – it will sound hollow when it is fully cooked. Remove from the tin and wrap in a clean tea towel while cooling. This will keep the crust soft.

Denis Mc Auliffewell as a man i love baking and bake most days,But the story that i am about to tell would have you wonder why i like baking at all.As a child growing up in rural ireland in the 60s everyone baked their own bread and going to the shop was a novelty and only for tea,sugar, and flour once a week and if you were luck you got a penny bar as a treat to savour on the long walk home,on one such trip to the shop it started to rain halfway home and the nearest house was grannys.on knocking at the door she invited us in as she said we were just in time as she was in the process of making an apple tart. it was autumn and cooking apples were plentiful,Granny gave me the task of slicing up the apples as she carefully kneaded the flour dough for the tart,just then it caught my eye that granny was wearing bandages on her poor old hands and that it looked very messy to say the least.my mom whispered to me that poor old granny had a skin condition and not to accept any of the apple pie when it was cooked.Thankfully the rain cleared off and mom said that we would make for home while it was still dry..granny said are you sure you wont wait for the apple pie..some other time my mom said,some other time and we made for the door.Well that was a long time ago but it still is a very fond memory of mine,off to make my own apple pie now and ironically i will get the apples from the same orchard that granny got her apples all those years ago..

Shannon Byrne. My grandmother's home made banana nut bread, Was my favourite memory, that has stayed in my head. Oh you could smell the aroma wafting up the street, Bananas, walnuts and sugar oh so sweet. But be warned don't nibble before your told, As my Granny oh she would certainly scold. But all the while giving you a cheeky grin, And arms spread wide with a snuggle within. You would know it was soon to be shared, When you saw the cream being prepared. Out with the biggest knife you'd ever seen, And a big pot full of the good old caffeine. Now you'd be sure to enjoy a very large slice, Steaming banana nut bread with cream oh so nice. Each delicious mouthful of this heart warming pan, Made with passion straight from the heart, for the clan. Now lets move forward to our present day, My Granny alas she has passed away. So I decided to follow in her footsteps, Baking cakes, bread and pies and even creps. The only problem is I'm not the best, When I put all these recipes to the test. So I think I may take a baking course, If not I fear my husband, he will divorce. For now I'll keep buying my Odlums flour, And baking some bread until I've super baking power. Best of luck to all those who enter, Coz one of us really does need a mentor. Laura Lee
