A mere baguette

Inspired by the news that there are now two rival guides to bakeries in Paris, I got out Elizabeth David's English Bread and Yeast Cookery to try and find some great English breads to bake. At the moment, I'm slightly obsessed by fruit bread (the sort that has raisins or dried fruit in), as it makes a fantastic snack when I'm hungry at work. And as luck would have it, there's a whole section on fruit and tea breads. I might try baking Welsh bara brith, Cornish saffron bread, or even Northumberland fruit bread - the recipes all sound fantastic. Will report back and let you know. Not that much baking is likely to get done this weekend, I suspect, as shed demolition is the order of the day.
