How to bake

Baking is a science.  Almost.  But it is also an art and a skill that improves with time and practice.  Within our web site there are many recipes, tips and suggestions for baking and improving your skills.

As we are millers and not bakers, we don't pretend to know everything about baking.  But through our active Social Media communities we are sure that you can link up with like-minded people with the same problems, solutions and ideas to provide stimulation and encouragement.

We love to see what you've been baking, but are just updating this section at the moment - we will be able to accept new community recipes in the near future, please don't try to upload in the meantime as we won't be able to accept the photo or send a voucher yet.


If you add one of your own baking recipes with a photo to the Shipton Mill website, we will send you a voucher for 5% off your next order from the Flour Direct shop.

It's very easy, just click here to visit your " My Shipton Mill" page to get started.
