Welcome to Mum&sons

My two eldest boys challenged me to start a cooking blog with simple recipes that we can cook together - and my youngest one has now joined in. I am hoping they pick up some cooking and photograph skills... or that at least they learn to design and run a blog.


This is the easiest bread to make at home with the kids and they all love it with butter.
You need:

150 gr plain flour
150 gr wholemeal flour
1 tablespoon of oatmeal (this is optional)
a pinch of salt
half a tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda
and 200 ml of buttermilk

Preheat the oven at 200 degrees. Mix all the ingredients but the buttermilk. Then add the buttermilk and mix it all with a wooden spoon. Make a ball with the dough, cut a cross on the top and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.


The kids had to try hard to dug out the radish as the root really sticks to the ground. We grated it, added two table spoons of soured cream, a pinch of salt, black pepper, a quarter of a teaspoon of english mustard power and a little vinegar.  My eldest got tears on his eyes when he tasted it, so hot it was. We added a bit more cream to soften the taste but still this proved far too strong for them. Absolutely delicious with roast beef though...
