Soft bread baps store well in the freezer, and are great for making a quick lunch when you have run out of ideas or are caught 'on the hop!'. Christine used her cold shelf to cook these toasty baps, and finished them off by dropping the tray to the oven floor. 

Christine's says - "I like making baps as they freeze very well and quickly defrost if put in a clean tea towel onto one of the hob tops under a hob cover."

Always keep a keen eye on your bread if you do it this way, but if you pop them in-between two hob covers, or a t-towel as Christine suggests, then 'pootle' about sorting the filling and a mug of tea, they should be done when you are!

Jess made her first ever loaf, using Christine's tips and recipe, and we think it looks crunchily delicious! Watch this space next week for a savoury and sweet bun recipe!

Katy is a rural girl at heart. She loves long walks, home cooking, paddling in rivers, warm fires and socks and stomping in leaves with her children. After studying ‘drawing stuff’ at university in Bath, Katy spent 10 years selling wares and managing folk at Habitat in Bath. Welcoming children into her world prompted her to return to drawing things, people and places from home. This led her to us at Blake & Bull and the rest is history. She draws our stuff, provides cuddles for the office dog, and is here to chat to you lovely lot.
