Time for Saturday - fresh bread and library books

If there's one thing I enjoy it's making fresh bread, however recently I bought a breadmaker off a friend and let's face it this is a much easier way of doing it.  Sometimes I improvise a bit, I'll make garlic and onion bread, or olive and sun dried tomato bread - this time I decided to try avocado and corn bread.

All was going well until silly me did what I do every night before I go to bed - I turned off all the switches in the kitchen. 5 mins later I realised what I'd done, rushed back to see a loaf of half cooked bread. I restarted the whole cycle again and hoped all would be ok. Unfortunately when I got up this morning half of the loaf was ok and the other half was squashed. sigh. So today I'm going to try again and this time all should be well.

Since it's Saturday the rest of my day is going to be about walking with Tia, visiting the library, reading and relaxing then watching tonight's rugby game between the All Blacks and Australia for the Bledisloe Cup.

Would love to hear what you're getting up to this weekend...


  1. Avocado and corn bread? That sounds wonderful! I love avocado in everything. I'd love it if you shared the recipe!

  2. hi there Amy, recipe as follows: 3 cups white flour, 1 cup wholemeal, 2 tbsp butter, 2 tbsp olive oil, half a can sweet corn, half an avocado pulp, salt, pepper, whatever herbs you want to put in, half a cup of milk, 1/4 cup warm water, 1 tbsp yeast or one packet of yeast, half a cup grated cheese, think thats it :-)

  3. oh no. hope it works the second time.

    is there a recipe for this bread? it sounds good.
