Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Waterford soda bread

    • ccav on November 14, 2012

      Substituted 1/2 c. of oat flour for part of the whole wheat flour. Excellent whole grain soda bread, the best I've ever made, nice flavor and texture.

  • White leaven bread

    • veronicafrance on June 26, 2013

      I'm very impressed with the almost no-knead method that makes the dough much easier to handle. Unfortunately my loaves suffered from the usual problem of spreading rather than rising in the oven, but the flavour and crumb were really good and I'm more than willing to try again.
