Last Day to Celebrate British Bread Week with my
Mum’s Scottish Morning Rolls – Baps
National Bread Week
16th – 22nd April 2012 is National Bread Week in the UK
For my last bread post for British Bread Week I am sharing my Mum’s recipe for Baps, Scottish Morning Rolls. These classic Scottish bread rolls are also easy to make – with only one kneading required. They are soft with a distinctive floured finish and are quite wide without much height, and they must only be baked for a maximum of about 20 minutes in order to maintain their soft texture. They are best eaten on the day that they are made; however, they are delicious toasted the next day and they freeze very well. This is my Mum’s recipe, she makes these at least once a week and they are firm family favourites; her recipe is a little different from the classic all white baps, as she adds a little oat flour for a nuttier flavour and texture.
I would like to say that just because British Bread Week is nearly over, there is no need to abandon this wonderful staple of most family meal tables……I am still experimenting with other recipes, which I will share, and what better than a nice slice of home-made bread to make your beef sandwich with, JUST in time for Great British Beef Week, which starts tomorrow on St Georges Day.
2012 Great British Beef Week
Taking place around St George’s Day each year from April 23 − 30, the second Great British Beef Week is perfectly timed to create positive PR and promotion about Red Tractor Assured British beef.
A number of multiple retailers have pledged their support for Ladies in Beef and Great British Beef Week. Independent butchers throughout the country are also helping to drive sales during the week too.
But back to bread, these bread rolls are the last in my trio of bread recipes for British Bread Week, and you can find the other recipes, as well as a more informative post about the history of bread on the British Isles here:
This is a shorter post than usual today as I am running behind due to a rather long but thoroughly enjoyable day at Tots 100 and Foodies 100 Blog camp Yesterday in Birmingham. I had an amazing day and met lots of lovely people, some whom I had met before, and I will be posting all about my day later on. With special mentions now to the Front Row Foodie Fraction that comprised: myself with Nelly, Angela, Sarah, Jayne, Charlotte, Clare, Laura and Made with Pink……..I met lots of lovely “mummy” bloggers too, all whom will be mentioned later…..the day was a roaring success and I can’t wait to share my news with you all. ( NO photos unfortunately, I took my camera and never took it out of my bag, a sign of an engaging day!) But before I shoot off and plan the rest of my menus for next week, as well as do a spot of gardening, here is my the recipe for my Mum’s Scottish Morning Rolls or Baps as they are also known as. See you all later, Karen.
