Hi, i am Lianne, 25 y/o and i live in the Netherlands. After a short break in Ireland this year i started baking bread, i fell in love with sodabread over there. That and a possible sesame-allergy... well, i found myself a new challenge: bake bread!

So, some of my attempts:

Flax seed wheat bread

Second attempt with poolish, a bit to pale on the outside...

And one of my sodabreads:


I hope i will find a lot of inspiring ideas over here to make more and more bread :)


Regards, Lianne

I'm new here too. Your breads look amazing :)

I bake lots of bread because I enjoy the process and I lke to know what goes into my food. Plus, you can't beat the smell and flavour of freshly baked bread, can you?!

Looking forward to finding lots of inspiration on here. Nice to meet you.

Love the look of the flax wheat bread.  Very nice loaf.  The others are nice as well but I am partial to seeds and wheat :)

Happy baking.

That whole wheat soda bread is fantastic. Even Ballymaloe would be jealous - it has to taste great.  Love the fax seed bread too -just gorgeous/  I coarsely grind flax seeds for bread so i can digest them and get their essential oils rather than letting them pass right on through without a hi and good bye :-)

Happy balking and welcome to TFL
