A weekend of adventure

Last weekend was a bit of a baking adventure for me – instead of trialling out a well established recipe somehow I ended up experimenting with two new recipes :

Malty Seeded Loaf and Vodka Cranberry Loaf. I know it sounds a bit crazy, but I must say I am really pleased with both of them. Especially the vodka one – a week later, and I can still smell the vanilla in the air. Oh, that’s making me hungry again.

 

Full recipes and photos on my blog

For Malty Seeded one

And

For Vodka Cranberry one

Vodka and Cranberry! That's my Rocky Horror Picture Show drink of choice! The loaves look great and I especially love the creative shown with that last one, hope you enjoyed them!

That  vodka/cranberry loaf is a very handsome loaf indeed. Very creative of you.

...but you've really got me with your Vodka Cranberry Loaf!
I have a homemade vanilla extract (Tahitian vanilla beans, golden rum)...may try some of this along with a bit of vanilla vodka, in your formula...really looking forward to trying this out!

 for your wonderful comments, its a great boost of confidence and I am thinking about making that Vodka Cranberry again – might try out different fruit this time
