You don't by any chance have the recipe for the youma, I would love to have some, it was my favorite bread along with lots of other people. I would be very happy for you to post anything you have in regards to the youma bread. The photo of the book on site was given to the Kirkcaldy Museum by the man who owned it.Maybe the museum would let you have a look at it. You do not say where you are but maybe you could start the youma bread all over again if you are a baker.


Hello Annie

No, sorry I don't have a record of the recipe, however like yourself I'd be very keen to get hold of a copy.

I will look out a copy of the letters I have and post them here.

No, I'm not a baker, although I have produced the odd camp fire bannock :)

The only other reference I have found for Youma bread is on this website, which features the transcribed diaries of a walk in the Cairngorms C1932.

"Tired, but looking forward to a tin of 'Skippers' and a 'Youma' loaf for tea, we hurried on, hoping to
find a fire to dry our clothes at"

To be found near the end of the entry for Thursday 28th July.

:)
