As of today the Doodle Bread blog will be moving over to just so everything’s under the one roof. There’ll be more bread recipes, photos and even some new how-to videos so stay tuned!


Red miso in the red dough to give it the colour and flavour, and a bit of tomato to help with colour too 🙂

To celebrate the world cup starting on Friday we’ve been baking World Cup Doodle Bread, first up SOUTH AFRICA DOODLE BREAD  🙂

Cheap Pop Song from Rhett Dashwood on Vimeo.

It’s a bit slow at the start, but give it a while to get going. A very cute and kitschy japanese pop song 🙂


I found this on buzzfeed this morning.. The Monster Engine, a book and art exhibit created by Dave Devries, adds a professional touch to children’s drawings. This artist takes children’s sketches and adds adult painting effects to give the sketches an amazingly crazed but dementedly cute dimension… they’re cool!

With ground shrimp in the rice and fish paste for the hair, it’s the obama sushi roll! found here

I found this whilst looking through etsy, it’s the work of cambridge illustrator Heidi Burton

Here’s an animation about food, that’s not food.. it was in Time’s top ten viral videos and is by a digital artist called ‘PES’ – check out more of his stuff here

Maisie is the daughter of a good friend of mine, and before christmas, Maisie and I had the opportunity to get to make doodlebread together and here’s a wee photo diary of how we got on 🙂 

Here’s maisie, wondering when we’re going to start baking and stop taking photos..

Maisie’s a big girl and doesn’t need anyone’s help opening the packets!


Maisie’s added all the water, and is stirring up the dough..

The dough is getting good and kneaded..

We’ve squished all our dough down into the tin


Now to get cleaned up!

While we’re waiting for the dough to proof, Maisie makes a start colouring in her doodle bread box.. 

We plopped out the doodle before maisie went to bed, and I popped it in the oven. In the morning, we all had fresh Doodle Bread for breakfast!

Maisie has been asking for weeks now when she is going to be on the doodlebread blog, and hopefully she’ll enjoy the photos! Has anyone reading the blog got any photos of making doodle bread? Would you like to share them? Because we’d love to see them! We have some goodies to give away for any that appear on the doodle bread blog, so if you’d like to appear here please Email Us at
