Baking with Khorasan flour for the first time has whetted my appetite to use it on a much more regular basis. This mixture was an experiment in another sense because I am still adjusting to an oven which behaves in different ways from the one I’ve been used to for the last 8 years. I find that using a medium sized loaf tin lined with baking parchment, makes it much easier to liberate the loaf from the tin when it’s baked. This recipe produces a very tasty Khorasan loaf which has a pleasant, light texture. The addition of a modest amount of fennel seed adds another dimension to the flavour. I now look forward to refreshing my supply of Khorasan flour…
Turmeric has a wealth of healing properties including being anti inflammatory and immune boosting, and even reported to help support low mood! These properties are enhanced by the black pepper in this recipe that increases the absorption of the active components of turmeric by at least 2000%. And on top of all of this, the loaf looks beautiful and tastes delicious!
Bread for sharing
An extremely easy to make, hot or cool, tear-apart, cummin-seed and tomato leavened bread that goes well with dips, mezzo-style mains or on its own. Think cumin-spiced focaccia!
Tasty bite sized garlic butter-glazed dough balls best served warm (with extra garlic butter for our family!)
With flavour reminiscent of a cheese & chilli straw, this bread puffs up nicely in the oven and goes well with tomato/pepper soups, chilli con carne and other tomato/pepper based dishes.
Big, fluffy and naughty
Sticky and sweet - improves having been kept in an airtight container for a few days. I cook in batches of 3 as this cake freezes well. Option to top with lemon icing
A warming ginger spiced, fruit and nut filled carrot cake!
A simple to make and really tasty cake that has a nice bit of spice
A warming spiced bread for the winter. Perfect for an alternative Christmas bread. Perfect with cooked meats or strong cheese. Use squash instead if pumpkins cannot be sourced. An easy bread to make, be careful when adding water as the pumpkin puree maybe moist.

This recipe really packs a fruity Rhubarb and hot ginger punch. Really good. Great as a breakfast muffin or as a treat. Don't worry about the sugar in the rhubarb, you won't use all the syrup (though what's leftover makes for a lovely ice-cream syrup or cordial with soda water).
A quick and easy individual cake recipe, with a seasonal spring twist! They make a good speedy alternative to the hot cross bun, with a similar spiced feel.
The perfect tea loaf! Very low in fat, but juicy and delicious! keeps well, if you can manage not to eat it all fresh... Brilliant for packed lunches and picnics.
Delicious slightly spicy flatbreads. Good with curries and alone.
Simple bread to enjoy with a curry (great for beginners)
This bread is a favourite on the bar at the Queen's Head, Burnham on Crouch, Essex on a Sunday lunch time. Its colours come from turmeric and beetroot powder which miraculously separate so that the crust is red, whilst inside remains yellow. Delicious with cheese, dips or olive oil.
Homemade cinnamon swirl bread with a gooey cinnamon sugar center - heaven !!!
