During the week I am a slightly grumpy civil servant battling against the delights of crowded trains and temperamental IT.

But at the weekend (and Mondays) my attention switches to flour and yeast. Aided and abetted by my Long Suffering Husband (SH) , with occasional assistance from an increasingly crotchety cat, I’m on a mission to bake the perfect loaf .

So join me here for ramblings about bread, the Yorkshire weather, more bread , the state of my veg patch and even more bread …..

  1. I was going to ask why you call yourself the Monday baker but my question has been answered. I haven’t yet posted a recipe on bread, so I hope I’m going to learn tons of bread baking from you. Thank you for stopping by and for talking to me. I love talking to other bloggers. Have a wonderful week….so you bake on Mondays, what happens the rest of the week?? P/s thanks for the follow…I look forward to postings on Mondays???

    • Hi. Lovely to hear from you too. Alas I work the rest of the week to pay for my ever increasing stocks of flour so baking is largely confined to weekends and Mondays (with the occasional midweek flatbread). Posting tends to be a bit more random. I may get some kind of schedule eventually but who knows….

  2. Wonderful to know and follow another bread baker! I will soon be turning to your schedule when my surgery rotation starts– I’ll be proud to make a loaf a week instead of a loaf a day as I am now.

    • Ditto! Wow! – one loaf a day is impressive!. I have to restrain myself sometimes with bread making as my Long Suffering Husband gets a bit “breaded out” – unless it has cheese in it of course…. Thanks for the follow. I look forward to reading all the wonderful things you bake and swapping ideas.

  3. I love your blog and all the wonderful bread recipes. I’m having so much fun looking through your bread creations! I love to make bread but find myself avoiding the oven on these hot summer days.

  4. Just discovered your wonderful blog. Greetings from a fellow Yorkshire lady. have been baking sourdough amongst other breads for a number of years. I am trying out the kefir breads at present thanks to Joanna and Fran.

    • Good to hear from another Yorkshire baker! My sourdough is a bit up and down at the moment – how I long to get consistency. Let me know how your kefir goes bread goes. It does sound intriguing.
