Residents living in our Holy Cross nursing home in Sunderland all agreed that the delicious smell of their freshly baked bread made their home feel extra homely.
Resident, Denis, got the ball rolling for a home baking session after spotting a tempting recipe in his daily paper.
Calling on all of their flour power, a group of residents soon had the yeast and flour mixture kneaded into shape, then it was off to the kitchen where it was baked to perfection before being enjoyed with a nice cuppa.
“To say the result was mouth-watering is an understatement,” said Home Manager, Emma. “Layered with butter while it was still warm, I’ve never seen anything disappear so fast!”
It just ‘proves’ that nothing quite beats the smell and taste of homemade bread.
