Anyway, it didn't seem to affect the final mix too much, although I'm a bit worried there'll be high notes of 'grubby WhSmith eraser' in this loaf rather than tangy apple and sweet cherry.
I know this post smacks of 'wasting-time-when-should-be-either-posting-a-real-recipe-or-doing-the-reading-for-the-journalism-course-which-starts-again-in-2-weeks', but I thought I would share that with you all.
And I solemnly promise to post a recipe by Thursday 30th September. (2010, not 2011.)
In the meantime if you would like to learn about my state of mind now that all my children are in full-time education, wander over to Powder Room Graffiti and have a read of THIS.
