We spend our days off baking

I made the first batch of Christmas cookies. 'Jødekager', "Jewish cakes". The names seems to come from the fact that they have a mix of sugar and cinnamon on them. I guess the cinnamon was seen as a typical Jewish / Middle Eastern spice in the olden days.

Tony made a very tasty bread with spelt flour (if you can get your hands on some of this flour, do so, it has the most amazing flavour!). The dough raised rather a lot and the bread ended up looking quite funny. It was begging for a face! ;-)

Don't worry, I didn't literally draw a face on the bread!
