Backyard Bakers

I was going to limit this to a bread makers' group.  But, on reading a few of my baking books, there are just too many wonderful goodies out there that need to be included.  

If you bake it in an oven and it tastes darn fine, then post it here. 

I'll try to make some relevant threads to help keep us organised.

I suspect most of us will just use a bread maker to make the dough.  Never-the-less, this is the place for great recipes of that type. Continue

Ring RSPCA they deal with other animals as well. Or advertise it to give away.

How lucky are you to have chooks that lay enough eggs that you need to USE THEM UP. If only I had the space. I do have a Backyard Pheasant in my yard at the moment, It has eaten several of my Blue Tongue Lizards that kept my snails at bay and I haven't seen my possum with her babies since it came here, any suggestions how I can rid myself of it....

Here's a quick video demonstration on how to make quiche.  I needed to use some eggs so it was the perfect opportunity.

That looks fantastic Jane.  Congrats!

Jeff many thanks for your tip on how to save my sourdough culture while I was away it worked really well.

One problem with my culture is it has no 'sour' flavour in the finished product, any ideas on how to make it taste sour?

Really pleased with my sourdough Pita bread, it came out just as picture on the recipe,

While I am at it.... I have been sorting out a recipe for a Sourdough fruit Loaf.... so please find attached the recipe to try out if you have time.... Comments I have received for my tests are "Best Fruit Loaf Ever - didn't even know it was sourdough based". The little bit of dried yeast really does help keep the loaf light... but you could leave it out and extend the proofing times.... let me know what you think.... I will eventually post it as a proper recipe!Sourdough%20Fruit%20bread.pdf

Thanks Jeff - i'll give it a pre run, while I still have the live starter.
