RTÉ Radio 1: Baking and breadmaking on Mooney

I was on RTÉ Radio 1‘s Mooney programme yesterday talking about baking and breadmaking – if you’re interested, you can listen here (I’m on after the 4pm news!) and here are some links to recipes that I either mentioned, or intended on mentioning, during the show.

My ever-popular Chocolate Brownies
Choc Chip Cranberry Cookies
Lemon & Pistachio Yoghurt Cake

And, for those breadmakers out there, here is a recipe for a simple Brown Soda Bread and – if you’re getting more adventurous! – you could try Mark Bittman’s No Knead Bread or even experiment with some Sourdough Bread.

    Congrats! I’ll have to listen, although bread making scares me!

  3. Can’t believe that, Kieran – after all, you even make your own marzipan! Reading Rose Levy Beranbaum’s The Bread Bible at the moment and you might find it helpful if you’re thinking of starting – I think that there’s too much detail, often flying much more by the seat of my pants, recipe-wise, but I think she would be great to shepherd a newbie through the first few loaves.Thanks Sarah – it’s only a small step from the Cork RTÉ studios, after all!
