    Re: The Bread Making / Recipe Thread

    I think the baking powder in that recipe may be to replace an egg which is in traditional Welshcakes. I would imagine you could do it without if you prefer - as you say they just wouldn't rise, but...

    Re how long it keeps, I make a medium size loaf (probably about 500g) and put half in the freezer and the other half in a sealed bag in the fridge. The fridge half keeps for several days, no problem....

    Re: The Bread Making / Recipe Thread

    Thank you, khadagan - I don't think I'd persevere with regular breadmaking without a machine (have tried it before and didn't - might be better if I had a three-year-old human mixer ;) )

    Oh yes, I missed the bit about the omega 6 in soya oil. Back to the drawing board then!
