Just a few loaves of bread delivered to The Seed in Buckfastleigh today! Figgy rye, white, maltster and Devon honey spelt…. So there will be a few lucky people in town getting our nice hand made bread to eat over the next few days.
We were asked to provide an afternoon tea for the local town plan consultation day (well the first of several I understand!)
- Cheese Scones – With North Devon extra strong cheddar.
- Scones with local (Scoriton) clotted cream and strawberry jam (jam on-top, of-course!)
- Chocolate cake made with marmalade
- lemon drizzle cake
- Buckfastleigh apple cake
- carrot cake
- gluten-free banana cake
- sandwiches made with north Devon cheddar, Bovey tracey ham, and egg mayonaise.
Add in gallons of tea and coffee to wash it all down with and it was a great afternoon.
A quick posting about a recent day out …

It looks like the baguettes are going down well in The Seed in Buckfastleigh, so they might well become a regular feature!
Not so sure about the Brioche though – did well the first week, not so well the second. Maybe it was the weather – I mean, who wouldn’t want a brioche muffin with their morning coffee!
Changed the header… Of-course I had to bake some baguettes to take that photo… Then eat them. What a sacrifice!
Still, you can never bake too many baguettes (although I suspect I may regret saying that one day!)
I volunteer some time for a local museum and history project called the Valiant soldier… So when they needed canapés for a party of local dignitaries coming to open the new family history museum extension, then naturally we offered to help…
On the menu was a selection of 6 offerings; Buttered Cheese Scones, mini quiche lorraines, Eggs mayonnaise, a selection of crackers with cream cheese and smoked salmon, local ham and cherry tomato cocktails and locally made chipolatas.
Hardly anything left over for my lunch tomorrow )-:
