Re: #10 Lard Cake - Hackney Girl's effort

Lardy carke is a childhood favourite of mine. So I was looking forward to this.
Amazingly, given the amount of sugar in it, it tasted much less sweet than I remember.
But fun to make.

Hackney Girl's Barm Bread

Tasty. But maybe I did not let it rise long enough. Unlike Mal I did faithfully follow the full Dan fandango, but that was only because I was home all day.

HackneyGirl's White Thyme Bread

The instructions are straightforward, although like a number of Dan's bakes you do need to be in for a significant portion of the day to tend to it, and it produces a tasty bread. I would go looking for better olives next time as I used fairly average supermarket ones this time. Also, think with a r...

Hackneygirl's Buckwheat pancakes

Excellent taste, and the 90 minute wait is easily incorporated into a slow Saturday morning enabling a good breakfast. My pancake tossing skills are very rusty so no pictures this time. The grains sounded as though they might be odd, but they actually made the flavour of the pancake. Now all I have ...

Hackney Girl's Alsace Loaf with Rye

I went off baking instructions to bake this as one oval loaf as I did not think I would get through the sticks. It worked really well and it even prompted me to buy more Rye Grains. I thought I might have to increase the baking time, but in the end it seemed cooked at 35 minutes. It was a really sof...

Hackney Girl's Cherry, Fennel & Rye Loaf

This tasted very moreish when eaten warm, with lots of butter however the second rise was not as powerful as the book suggested.

Hackney Girl's Quick White Loaf

This was my third attempt. The first was just too flat, I think the second rise was very fast and so leaving it for the recommended 1.5 hours meant it went on too long. The second time I used a tin, but managed to forget to oil the tin, so it was great, buut stuck in. Finally I managed to do it all ...

Re: HackneyGirl's Wholegrain Rye

Success at last.
