And the proof is in the making and eating........

As mentioned in my last post on St Patrick's Day 2008, you will have seen a mention of an Irish Brown Bread making kit a number of times. One of the lucky recipients was Ed, the Daddy of the following beautiful children, Kalyen and Jacob. 

Ed very graciously shared these pictures with me and I was so happy to see my gift was used and obviously enjoyed immensely.  So I will let the pictures tell the story:


Getting ready to start bread making


Kalyen studying the mason jar of the secret ingredients and Jacob reading the instrucitons


The studying continues........... 

Step 1 - Contents of the jar goes into the mixing bowl

Step 2- Pour in the 12 oz of water

Step 3 - Mix well

Step 4 - Spray the loaf tin 

Step 3 B - Double check that the mixing is all done


Step 5 - Place the mixture in the loaf tin


Kalyen and Jacob - looking so proud at a job well done


Step 6 - Bake for 40 mins  and VOILA the above brown bread loaf is just PERFECT. 



Another shot of the perfect loaf ( not sure what Jake is doing!) 

Now it looks like he is taking a bite out of the middle!! :-)

And when all is done the only thing left to do is taste it, Jacob taking a really big bite. 



Pretty Kaylen showing off her slice before she eats hers.

I hear through the grapevine that their Dad is very good at baking cakes from scratch. BTW Ed, my birthday is in June! :-)
