Saffron "red gold". Saffron threads may also be toasted. Once toasted, these threads can be ground into a powder.

 

made smaller loaves.. great for giveaways 

 

 

 

had so much fun, drinking dark German beer, long black coffee.. eating cake and fresh hot crunchy and soft bread.

it was a beautiful afternoon with friends.

Some wonderful loaves. I really enjoyed the coloration of the crumb and as usual the really bold bake. I always feel inspired to bake when I see your posts (although at the moment I am unable I can dream).

It sounds like you had a great afternoon and the nutritional combination of beer, cake and bread is always a good one. 

Happy Birthday to you

All the best

Thanks for asking. I am in hospital at the moment and likely to be stuck here for many weeks. I hope to be out as soon as possible so I can start baking again.

i just cannot help coming in to TFL and checking out your great blog entries and your wonderful bakes. I always get such great inspiration from you, so thank you very much for that, it keeps me going in these tough times.

All the very best

Andy

The king of all cakes in my book is cheese cake and the blueberry cheese cake is the king of them - if you discount habanero and lime cheese cake :-)

Your bread is great as usual.  Perfectly baked inside and out.  I have no idea what red gold spice is so I have to go look it up.  Hope the red is some kind of hot chili -but not priced like good though:-)  I still haven't gotten around to baking with my Chinese numbing powder yet either.....

We are celebrating today too - 26th Anniversary.

Happy Baking Evon
