Rustic Courgette, Carrot & Seeded Loaf


This rustic carrot, courgette and seeded loaf is the perfect weekend bake.

This loaf recipe is proof enough that bread baking is possible – for anyone and everyone, at any age or level! I engaged the enthusiastic help of my daughter. She did most of the work and thoroughly enjoyed mashing up and kneading this heavy mix with her bare little hands. She also sat beside the oven, patiently guarding her creation, waiting for the transformation. This loaf was a great hit. Enjoyed the most by my daughter, who not only appreciated its crunchy crust but also the efforts of her own handy work. I guess there’s a lesson in there somewhere.

We ate this bread with a smear of butter whilst dunking it in our Broccoli & Blue Cheese Soup.
