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.

http://www.electricscotland.com/travel/tours/tour25.htm

"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.

:)

Hi wornsocks, welcome to the KB. 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.

Hello

I discovered this forum quite by accident...

My Great Grandfather, Andrew Rush was the inventor of the Youma Malt Loaf!

Although sadly I can provide no proof that this is the case, All of the correspondence I have refers to 'the loaf', the name 'Youma' misspelled as 'yuma' appears only on a hand written note written by my father.

The loaf was 'invented' for a competition being run by 'The Hovis-Bread Flour Co Ltd' in late 1913.

My Great Grandfather who was a master baker in the employ of Young Brothers, Bakers, Edinburgh, was the winner.

His prize was an 'American Waltham Rolled Gold Watch and Chain'.

The watch was bequeathed to the next person in the family line who bore the name 'Andrew', that turned out to be me.

I could probably post a copy of the letter to the forum if anyone shows interest, I would very much like to have higher quality images of the 'Youma Book of Facts' posted earlier in this thread if anyone has them.

Hi Turraloon, was hoping to find out who made the youma bread, maybe we could revive it, or maybe some baker may be able to bake it again , I will keep searching and see if anyone might be able to help find a baker to bake it again. I would love to have some with nice thick butter.

Hi Turraloon, like you the KB had no reply to the museum about the book, but the other day I was having a look at who has been looking at the Kb and found another gentleman who had been thinking about the word Yuma and Youma the bread, well he had put it into google and found your book on the Kirkcaldy Book, so word is getting around and people are looking at the book, thanks to your kindness.Looking forward to hearing form you. Ann.

Well Annie thanks to all your help I have finally got this booklet into the Kirkcaldy museum, and I hope many people will have a look at this little gem of history.

On a disappointing note I had to coax an acknowledgement from the taxpayers employees there, that they had received it. Ah well!
