The other day the Headmaster suggested we buy a bread machine, despite my love of carbs I know this would be a very bad decision!

However, in the spirit of the Great British Bake Off I did have a go and made this rather impressive sunflower celebration loaf, based on an easy to follow recipe at Adventures in Cookery.

The Sunflower Bread would be perfect served fresh from the oven for a large gathering for brunch (oh to have time to meet up with friends for brunch, I do remember long and lazy brunches from my very distant past!) or a perfect match for a hearty soup.

This is where things started to go wrong for my waistline!

Fancy petits fours are next up…the kitchen is about to get very messy!
