Chocolate Chip Cookies

Quick, simple and oh so yummy! This recipe can easily be halved, but it's best to make the whole batch because they store amazingly well in the freezer.

Sage and onion pull apart rolls

Deliciously soft, fluffy, savoury buns, which when broken open, reveals a sage and onion filling dispersed through the bun. Spread on some good quality salted butter and you are done. Excellent for picnics, accompanying soup or just as a snack by itself. They freeze very well and I tend to bake 3 batches in one go every few weeks as they are a perfect after school snack and a great way to utilise my very prolific sage plant!

Rhubarb Cake

In May we always have an abundance of rhubarb. It’s a fantastic vegetable for crumbles, jam, cakes or just stewed with a bit of ice cream. We appreciate it even more because there isn’t much else from the garden at this time of year. Here’s a cake I bake a lot when there’s rhubarb about.

Spicy Savoury Bread and Butter Pudding

We have all had those moments right, where despite our best efforts our bread gets stuck and what comes off our pizza stone or out of our baking tin looks like a loaf of bread that has been run over a few times. However all is not lost, that bread can be used to make a savoury bread and butter pudding that makes the whole situation a little less saddening. I have used sourdough bread, onions, bacon and chilli here, but honestly use whatever you have to hand.

Ultimate Raisin & Chocolate Teacakes

OK, so if like me you love a toasted teacake with a generous helping (slice) of butter on it you just have to try this recipe. Some of the steps may seem a little excessive (like the 24hr cognac bath for the raisins) but trust me – the results are worth it.

Carrot and apple sourdough muffins

Really delicious way of using your sourdough discard. Makes about 12 American sized muffins, or, as I prefer about 12 english buns/fairy cake sized treats. Both seem to take about the same time to cook though

Soft Crunchy Sweet Potato Bread

Has anyone got picky children?! Here’s how to hide vegetables in bread! These loaves are soft and slightly squidgy. I slice then freeze a loaf or two so that I can use a slice at a time. Great for supper with a poached egg. Very filling!

Vegan Celebrations' Fruit and Nut Cake

Cheese and Herb Grissini

This simple grissini recipe is quick to put together and a great way for all of the family to get involved with shaping dough. Obviously the thinner the better in terms of crispiness but our kids loved experimenting with lots of different shapes and it was all good!

Added by: Samuel Carlton | Tags: Bread, Grissini, Savouries

Coffee and walnut cake

Your best cup buddy! The vegan experience is worth the try just to shake this up a little bit. Why waste the aquafava anyway when there are so many things you can do with it? More than that, there is no need to panic when you suddenly realised that you are out of eggs in the end. Flax seeds would also do I would think but my experience did not go that far. Hope you can enjoy too!

Pumpkin sourdough

Amazing bread perfect for wet autumn days. Full of healthy stuff such as pumpkin puree and lots of seeds. The dough it fairly hydrated and more suitable for semi to experienced bakers.

Traditional homemade baklava

Traditional homemade baklava recipe as handed down through the other words this is how my grandmother used to make it. I used Shipton Mill organic white flour and the result was mouth wateringly good. Crispy flakes on the outside, sweetly moist on the inside dripping with syrup! It takes some time and effort may be but it is worth it.

Poor mans Brioche

So this still tastes great, mark my words. I am just on a quest to eat beautiful foods day by day rather then week by week because of how bad they actually might be for you! These are prefect for a midweek burger - far less guilt about smashing back tons and tons of butter!!!

Universal yeast dough

This recipe can be baked in bundt tin as is or it can be used for variety of pastries: strudel, filled buns, cinnamon buns, roll in shape of croissant etc. It is little bit sweeter dough, so if you are going to fill it, adjust the sugar amount either in the dough (down up to 80g) or the sweetness of the filling.

Braided sweet bread

This is my mom's recipe for Christmas braided bread and is absolutely delicious. The texture of the bread is rich, yet fluffy and the sweetness is just right - not too sweet, but not too plain. It even stays fresh for few days. Add raisins or almonds to give an extra nutty or fruity flavor to really make it stand out.

Albert The Tall's Dorset Knobs

Traditional Dorsetshire biscuit, size of a golf ball, high temperature start, then long low bake to crisp. Used by nurdlers (Google it!). Apparently made by bakers with the sweepings of the bakery floor at the end of the shift and left in the oven until the next shift when they were eaten - complete with sawdust and rodent droppings (optional!).

French traditional shortbread from Poitou

The Broyé du Poitou, an old, traditional French recipe for a buttery biscuit coming from the Poitou region of western France. Easy to make, doesn't need a special tin and traditionally broken into little pieces, for sharing, by giving one big punch to the middle of it. The hard biscuit then breaks into chunky shards.

This and That Bread

A lovely, rich flavoured and versatile bread with beautiful texture made from a mix of different bread flours. All the flours in the recipe are Shipton Mill. I call this recipe 'This and That' because really you can change the ratios of the flours to suit or to whatever you have in stock. The malt/sunflower and extra coarse flours add super texture.

Sourdough Starter Crackers

As many people have during this lockdown, we began to make sourdough bread but, as any sourdough baker will know, there is a lot of spare starter. We have been trying to find a delicious cracker recipe for ages and it turns out that all we needed was some sourdough starter. It's a great recipe to have to hand and easy to remember too!

( italian Easter bread )

This recipe comes from south Italy, and it's traditionally served on Easter day and the day after! It's a delicious rich brioche filled with a mix of different cheeses ( Emmental, gruviera, provolone ) and cured meat (salami, pancetta, ham). This is the king of the table on Easter day, but, for to be honest, I love it any time of the year! Just put it on the middle of the table and see it disappear piece by piece! A mixed salad, some more cured meat like mortadella, salame, some cheeses, soft boiled eggs, grilled vegetables and that's it! And if you go on a picnic and you wanna impress everyone, bring it over and see people looking at you as the best Baker of the world!

Ossetian flat breads stuffed with chard

Beetroot tops are often thrown away, which is a great shame as they taste delicious, especially in spring. Their flavour is sweet and earthy, reminiscent of chard. They use beet tops a lot in the Caucasus. This recipe is inspired by Ossetian pies. Ossetians are highlanders just North of Georgia. These pies are probably as old as the hills because traditionally three are served and each signifies a different element - earth, water and fire. I fell in love with their story, and with their outstanding flavour. They are normally brushed with melted butter as they come out of the oven, but I love to go one step further and smother them in beurre noisette. Try it, it will be the best thing you will eat this spring.

Yorkshire Cakes

My great-great-grandmother Ann Vickerman started her working life at Sledmere House near Malton. When she married, her friend, Mary Harrington, who was the cook, gave her a cookery book as a wedding present.The book was 'A New System of Domestic Cookery' by Maria Eliza Rundell. It was first published in 1806 and her copy, which has now come down to me, is the 1840 edition. In the chapter on 'Bread' there is a recipe for something described as Yorkshire Cakes. Unlike modern cookbooks there are no illustrations and much of it is written on the basis that the reader will know what to do! Things such as 'cook in a slow oven' do not translate well to a modern hi-tech oven. With a certain amount of trial and error and filling in the blanks I have reconstructed what I think these were. I cannot find any other recipe for these or mention of them elsewhere. As a proud Yorkshireman I could not let this part of the county's heritage be forgotten. Essentially, it is an enriched dough bread bun, or as we call them in West Yorkshire 'teacake'. Great for lunchtime sandwiches, or a BLT and something really unique to bring out for the summer BBQ.

Spelt with sun-dried tomatoes

Fearing that a loaf made totally from Spelt Wholemeal flour might turn out to be rather dense I was hesitant to give it a try. However, allowing the mixer some extra minutes to work the dough plus adding some sourdough starter to the mix, seems to have made the difference. Using a loaf tin offers some support to the dough in its second proving and the end result is a loaf with excellent taste and texture. Creating a moist atmosphere in the oven before putting in the loaf seems to encourage a bit of ‘oven spring’. This recipe adds sun-dried tomatoes and some fennel seeds to enrich things. Another way of varying things is to reduce the Spelt to 400g and mix it with either 100g of Three Malts & Sunflower Brown Flour or 100g of Seeded White Organic Flour Using a sharp bread knife, it’s possible to cut thin slices which provide a tasty basis for lunchtime sandwiches. Now I just need to order some more Spelt Flour…

Irish Porter Cake

Onion and Thyme Bread

This is a bread that I have been making for a few years now and have arrived at this recipe by experimentation. The quantities of onion and thyme seem to work OK but can be varied to suit personal taste. For some reason unknown to me, I find this bread does actually keep fresh for a day or two longer than a basic bread, although the aroma of the onions and thyme make it so appetising to me that it rarely has chance to go stale.

Gluten-Free Raspberry and Apple Muffins

Makes 6 large muffins: you can make these at any time of year using frozen raspberries, but using fruit in season make deliciously fruity muffins with a lovely citrus burst in the mouth, and the ground almonds add richness and moistness without making the result too heavy. These went down very well in the office at Shipton Mill!

Added by: gfshiptonmill | Tags: Muffins, fruit, Gluten Free, GFSM Cakes etc

Gluten-Free Apple Tart

This apple tart takes a tad longer to prepare due to cooking and pureeing the fruit prior to baking, but it produces a lovely smooth tart with a good flavour, and looks really good if you leave red skins on the sliced apples for decoration - only if you're using organic fruit though. The gluten-free pastry can be made in advance and kept cool in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Gluten-free Simnel Cake

We developed a Simnel cake using 50/50 gluten-free sorghum and millet flour instead of wheat flour. It came out very well, the middle layer of marzipan sank quite a lot but the cake was lovely and moist and chewy, and it couldn't be told apart from an Easter cake made with wheat flour - everyone can enjoy a slice! Decorate it with a few primroses, tiny chocolate eggs and some little chicks.

Pumpkin, carrot and walnut cake with cashew orange frosting

This is similar to a carrot cake, but so much better!

This is one of the best lemon cakes I have ever baked. The cake is very fragrant (thanks to a candy-like liqueur limoncello), moist and finished with smooth lemon glaze. The best with tea or milky cappuccino. Enjoy! :)

Lavender and Lemon Loaf

This loaf cake is soft and fluffy, and very moist on account of the lemon drizzle, stained a deep pink from the lavender.

Linzer Torte
(Oma's Rezept)

This is my mother's recipe for Linzer Torte. Not specifically a Christmas cake, but no Christmas was complete without this cake. (And it's the most delicious dough to be eaten raw ...)

Light lemon buns

By using olive oil rather than butter, cutting down the sugar and introducing lemon into the recipe, these buns are lighter and fresher on the palette than an indulgent Danish pastry. That's not to knock Danish pastries at all - a time and a place for those, of course! From time to time, I have added grated dark chocolate with a little orange zest to the filling below, and that's quite a popular recipe with some of my family.

Walnut and Blueberry Banana Loaf

The Queen of Banana Bread. This quick and easy recipe is a delicious all purpose treat, which can be made and served within the hour. The hardest part of the process is clearing up afterwards so I have given the quantities for making two loaves. Any excess can be sliced and frozen.

Cookies, but better

I'm only adding this as I want a discount voucher, but being perfectionist, I would not offer anything less than.. well, perfect. The recipie has a strange amount of ingredients as it's not from the recipie book, please, don't be put off by that (and of course, you don't have to measure exactly). These are incredibly tasty, chewy and full of 'healthy energy' cookies. Best eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner, with milk or in the park. Also, I would like to mention, that it's not worth baking it if you are going to substitute or skip ingredients such as dried coconut, semolina, oat groats, cacao bean nibs and prunes, as without it, it will just be like any other cookies you've made before... p.s. sorry about the photo, only two cookies were left by the time i've got to my camera...

Chestnut & Rice buns

1st Attempt! Wanted to find a way of using chestnut flour and rice flour other than in bread. Just made these this morning and I am quite pleased with the taste. The amount of sugar could be altered as i dont like things too sweet. I woulsd sugestmore if you have a sweet tooth !! I felt they had a lovely taste but were a bit dry. Next time I shall try adding some fruit and also plan to try coco powder as well, watch this space.

Nordic malt cookies

Crispy cookies with a beautiful dark colour and a great malty, almost coffee or chocolate-like flavour. For Christmas you could add flavorings such as 1 tsp mixed spices and ½ tsp grated orange zest – not Nordic, but very tasty!

Per's Danish Treacle Cake

This cake is a regional Danish classic. It's one of the easiest and best cakes if made properly. It's basically a thick, soft sweet yeasty dough with a topping of sugar/butter that melts and burns to a dark brown caramel-like substance.
