O.T Cookery Session – Foolproof Brown Bread

Foolproof Brown Bread Recipe

Here in New Horizon we have been keeping up with the Operation Transformation. But as well as the programme for the O.T. we are also looking at all Healthy Options.

We all find it difficult to leave out bread in our diets so we found this gorgeous Brown Bread recipe and Bernadette took a few of us into the Coffee Dock and we baked this delicious recipe.

You should try it out!!
