We are deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Our thoughts are with the The Royal Family at this incredibly sad time as we join the nation in mourning the loss of our beloved Sovereign.
May she rest in peace.

We will continue to endeavour to process and despatch your order within 3-5 working days and will try our utmost to get as many parcels packed and sent out in advance of the strikes to minimise any disruption.
Thank you for your patience, and we hope this advance warning will help you plan for any baking you may have scheduled.
We have a Panasonic bread maker which we use for all our bread. In the Panasonic you would load the machine in the order the ingredients are listed. it may vary for other manufacturers machines.
2 teaspoons Bioreal Organic Dried Yeast
200 Grams Shipton Mill Organic White Spelt Flour
200 Grams Shipton Mill Organic Wholemeal Spelt Flour
200 Grams Shipton Mill Seeded White Organic Flour
3 teaspoons unrefined Demerera sugar (2 of white suger alternatively)
2 teaspoons sea salt (1 1/2 of table salt alternatively)
2 tablespoons of olive oil/ rapeseed oil
370ml of water
We use menu 18 on our machine which is a 3hour 15 minute dough setting.
Remove the dough from the machine and using a floured surface divide into 8 or 10 equal portions and kneed and roll into shape. If I want slightly larger cobs for say bacon and egg sandwiches I just make 8 and flatten them out before proving for a cob with plenty of space. The mix will easily make 10 smaller cobs for normal use or even 12 slightly more delicate ones for more polite company! Brush the tops with Olive oil or Rapeseed oil.
Arrange on a baking tray and prove at around 40 degrees until doubled in size (20-25 mins) and then bake in a preheated oven at 220 degrees Gas MK7 for around 15mins until browned.
Our fig, spelt and pumpkin seed flour blend is made using sun-dried Calimyrna figs which are prized for their natural sweetness and flavour, grown near the ancient city of Ephesus in Turkey. Harvested by hand....
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!
Our everyday loaf full of body and texture. We eat it as toast with peanut butter and as sandwiches - ham, cheese, mustard and salad or roast chicken, stuffing and mayo our favourites! Never fails for a chewy, heavily grained, substantial wholemeal loaf.
Based on a Panasonic sd-zb2502 wholemeal loaf recipe. Makes a perfect, delicious loaf with or without seeds. This loaf has a slight nutty taste from the rye flour and makes the loaf slightly more substantial than a standard wholemeal loaf with without the real heaviness of a rye loaf
A really flavoursome, nutty, savoury and crusty wholemeal loaf. Perfect to eat with Summer salads, to accompany a cheese board or to have wirh a bowl of soup
