Well here is perhaps a recipe challenge.
I am not from Fifeshire but from Aberdeenshire. I remember when at school -and that is some 65 +years ago, my mither snding me to the bakers to bring a 'YOUMA'. A great treat, this malt loaf, very tasty and healthy.
Well, I have searched the web for some info, and up comes the fact that Youma was made at East Bridge mills in Kirkaldy ! Also the baker was Paterson who was also a sponsor of Raith Rovers. I have also acquired a very interesting little booklet, photo attached.
Perhaps there are more of these around still in Kirkaldy.
Would be very thankfull for anyinfo on Youma !

Hi there Turraloon, very nice to have you join the Kirkaldy Book, hope we will hear more from you. Well it is funny but just a few days ago I was talking about the very same bread , it was one of my favourites, I used to like it spread with thick butter. we used to buy it from the baker who came with his wee van, his name was Bud the baker.I will do some research as well and see what I can find out about this bread. I guess we might be in the same age bracket since I am 65 years plus some as well. I look forward to seeing the booklet you speak about.Maybe the Be-ro cook book people might have a recipe for the bread and then we could have a go at making it ourselves. If you have any other recipes you would like to share with us please do, perhaps something from Aberdeen. I hope other will also share their recipes with us from other parts of the world.Thank you Ann.

I thought i had sent the pictures.
Not very good at this sort of thing.
Will try again

Don't think this is working.

Is there any other way I can email pictures to you and you can perhaps post them for me ?

Hi there, well I am not to good at explaining just how to post your photos, I know how to do it on my computer, but since I am not to sure from your end I will get Hamish to tell just how to do it, he makes it sound very easy. I will look forward to seeing them, once you get the hang of you will be fine. Us oldies have to stick together, and I think we all do just fine, good luck Ann.

Hi turraloon,

I'd be very happy to post your pictures.. you can email them to hamish@kirkcaldybook.com

HOWEVER

if you want to try it again, here's how..

First, to get the images to a size that is suitable for the forum you'd need to maybe edit them on your PC so they are less than 400 pixels wide and ideally less than 100kb in size [around that anyway]. Save the image as a .gif or a .jpg file. .jpg is better quality for photographs.

If you don't have any image editing software you can..

1. just send them to me and I'll do it for you,

OR

2. download a free program for image editing here - http://www.tucows.com/preview/194967

Once you have the image saved in the right sizes then you can post in the forum when you're adding a comment. Once you click 'Reply' to make a post it will open to the page where you can type in your comments, and you seem to have mastered that with no problem.

Scroll down the page a little bit under the area where you type the comments and you'll see,

Attach file

in the blue on left and immediately to the right a text field with a grey button called 'Browse'

If you click the Browse button it will open a small window where you can navigate the files on your computer [like you would do in Windows Explorer].

Just navigate to the picture file you edited and saved and click 'Open' and it will put the image file name into the text field next to the Browse button.

Once you do that you scroll down a little bit more and click the 'Submit' button.

I'll just test it here now to make sure nothings broken :)

Hi there turraloon, glad you were able to post this little book about the youma bread.It would be very nice if we could get some one to make it again, I wonder when they stopped making it and why they stopped making it.Sorry I have taken so long to answer you, I have been changing to a lap top and getting everything moved onto it and I have been off line for a few days while this was being done. It will take me a little bit to get used to the new computer, but it will give me more flexability, I can use this new one if I am sitting resting my legs. I will do some more research and see what I can come up with and will keep all informed.Looking forward to getting more recipes from Aberdeen.By the way Kirkcaldy does have a museum,you could get in touch with them, or if you want I will do it for you just let me know I would be very happy to get in touch with them for you. Ann.
