We went to Totnes Market on Friday, and I brought a bag of Peanut Granola from the Common Loaf Bakery stall. I've been a huge fan of them for a long time now and their produce is probably the best bread I've ever tasted.
I fancied making my own Granola for a while now, and seeing theirs and trying it gave em the push to have a go for myself.

I found a recipe for the basic mixture online, looking around the cupboards I found Pistachio nuts, Walnuts, Cranberries and Chocolate Chips to use for a filling.
My recipe had no indication of the amount of fillings to use but I figured that as long as they were no more than 50% of the total ( 270g of Oats) it should be OK.

Here's the dry mixture, Oats and filling plus Sugar and Cinnamon,

And here's the Canola Oil and Honey, with a dash of Vanilla.

Mixed together we have this, which I spread out on a lined sheet.

I baked it at 140 for 25 minutes and left to cool.

After it had gone hard I broke it into pieces and stored it away.

 That's breakfasts sorted for the next few days.

I've just about recovered from my bad back, actually having a week off was quite nice, no 5am starts but now we're back to the grind.

In the middle of the Oats Order ( 2 Small Rye, 4 Spelt, 2 S/W White, 1 Soda, 10 Teacakes, 10 Rolls) I'm trying to do some samples for a new customer.

So I've done some Sourdough, Some rolls and Focaccia, I can't do the full range because I bake to order and I can't do a batch of everything, so I'm concentrating on the quality, with a suggestion of what I can do.

Here they are, at least the new ones, I will cut a slice off of my  White Sourdough and the Walnut Bread in the Morning.

Thats White Rolls, Cheese and Chorizo Rolls Tomato Focaccia, Rye Sourdough.

Festive Cookies

Here they are, he Cinnamon, Orange and Chocolate Cookies. They have sourdough starter in as well.

Millie and Me have expressed an interest, so I'll be taking samples down tomorrow, I've had to hide them as they are so tasty!

Please excuse the short post, I'm snowed under with bread orders and NaNoWriMo at the moment, 18000 words in 10 days!

 I was minding my own business yesterday, when I got a text from Oats, 'we have had an order, can you do another 3 Spelt for tomorrow.'

Yes, I replied, that will be 7 loaves then.

Then a few minutes later another text, 'we have had an order, can you do another 3 Spelt for tomorrow.'

I thought maybe it was a queue of people in the shop, each wanting three spelt loaves, a bit unusual so I queried it.

Back came the reply 'Please if possible'

Better make sure I thought, 'So that's 10 loaves' I sent.

No, only 7 was the reply.

Then the explanation, the message had been sent twice, I nearly had to panic as I would have been up before I went to bed, with all the other stuff I had to do.

Still, 7 is better than 4. Maybe next week.

Flavoured Bread

I haven't made it for a while, but I did a Marmite infused loaf yesterday, I wish I had done two as the smell was so enticing, I almost didn't want it to go to the customer. I know they say that the first bite is with the eye, well the second must be with the nose then.

I also made an Apple and Cinnamon loaf for the same order, that one filled the kitchen with the smell of Christmas, the two combined to make a sweet and sour fragrance that lingered all day. Until it was replaced by Bread and Butter Pudding that is.
