When COVID lock down started, I started making more and more bread, giving most to my neighbors in our hamlet. I was making several loaves every day, experimenting with different recipes, some from books and then as I got more adventurous and made my own up. This recipe is the most popular one and I am constantly asked to make more, it uses three Shipton flours. The recipe makes two large loaves
This addition of molasses to this rye loaf gives it a gorgeous deep flavour
This is a sweet treat or a nice decoration if you add some icing. Alternative to gingerman, being more delicate in flavour and robust in structure.

There are a few recipes of Vinschger Paarl on the net, but all of them uses yeast, so I've been experimenting using only with sourdough culture and taste just like the one I ate in South Tyrol. My South Tyrolean husband approved it :)
This is a recipe for a German style seeded rye bread – known as “Vollkornbrot”. It’s not labour-intensive to make, but it does take a while and you certainly won’t have something fresh out of the oven in a couple of hours. It’s well worth the wait though - packed with seeds which give it a rich nutty taste and texture, it keeps well for several days after baking and the flavour is amazing!

Something tasty to go in the oven with the bread.
This bread uses both sourdough starter and dried yeast, to make a wonderful nutty comforting dense bread. Best sliced thin like pumpernickel.
I usually use a mix of Malthouse, Strong White and Strong Wholemeal Flours to make this loaf, but due to an accidental substitution this one is Light Rye, instead of the Malthouse. It turned out better than I'd hoped and the crust is really crispy ...
This sourdough formula uses old bread from the previous [rye loaf], which is dried/browned in a [low-heat] oven. Then it is ground into course flour to use along with cracked rye in the second feeding of the starter, which is more like a soaker at this point.
I have been to Madeira several times and fell in love with this delicious bread. Bolo do caco is a traditional bread only produced on the islands of Madeira and is made of sweet potato, preferable the type they grow in Madeira. However you can take the normal sweet potato found in the supermarket. 'Bolo' means bread and 'caco' refers to the slab of stone that the bread is baked on. These breads are not baked in an oven but in a frying pan. They are typically served with butter and garlic.

German style wholegrain rye bread. Great with savoury toppings or toasted with honey.
Wondering what to do with a lot of active rye sourdough starter I experimented with using it in combination with Organic Three Malts & Sunflower Brown flour. The following recipe involves preparing a sourdough starter/production sourdough the day before baking the loaves. This recipe combines using natural yeast in the starter with using some active dried yeast when it comes to baking the loaves. This combination helps me produce a couple of loaves with a nice texture and flavour when there’s not enough time to work through all the usual processes needed to produce a ‘pure’ sourdough loaf.
This uses a double kneaded, double risen method. If you have strongly rising types of flour, you could get away with a single kneading and a single rising. This is a variation of a recipe first devised by Sonya Romane.
This uses a mixture of organic white flour, wholemeal and light rye to make a delicious savoury loaf - that is also amazing with cheese or marmalade!

This is a recipe for a delicious danish rye bread. It's a family recipe so keep it a secret ;)
Dark, delicious, easy-to-make rye sourdough. Ideal for working people; start it in the evening, eat it for breakfast. I use a mixer with dough hook, but I guess you could equally hand knead it. No, I haven'the forgotten the salt; I don't usually put any in my loaves.
I’m talking about my beloved recipe for Russian Black Bread, a pumpernickel bread for people who think that standard pumpernickel with it’s paltry seven ingredients is just not trying hard enough.
A deliciously simple and quick loaf from your bread machine using sourdough starter: great when you haven't got time or patience to work out a loaf with your hands. A recipe inspired by the Eastern European style of sourdough bread. Ideally made with Shipton Mill Light Rye flour. Tested and tried on Panasonic breadmaker (SP - ZB2502) but should work well on any other quality bread maker.
Traditional danish rye
This recipe is tried and tested using the breadmaker, but could no doubt be oven baked instead. The vitamin C powder allows the use of a higher proportion of rye (for extra colour and flavour) without preventing the loaf rising properly. If all goes to plan you get a lovely soft loaf, excellent rise and a very rustic flavour.

Just delicious! Mix of three flours and addition of chopped rye makes this bread one of a kind. I ate the whole loaf in one go!
Not quite pumpernickel, but slices smoothly. The cornmeal rounds off the tang of the rye. "For persons of sedentary habits and dyspeptic turn, no food is more wholesome" as quoted in 'The Philosophy of Housekeeping by J.B. Lyman (1869).
For now or later, these refrigerator biscuits are just the thing to enjoy with a cup of coffee. Easy to make, and easy to bake, gently spicy and aromatic, the recipe could be altered with your favourite spices, or add a few nuts, or dried fruit. Makes about 30.

This is based on a traditional soda bread recipe but with the addition of light rye flour or, and this is my favourite, Orcadian 'Bere' flour. Delicious fresh, with marmalade or cheese, good toasted the next day.
Simple, natural and healthy loaf of bread
These delicious Scandinavian style, wafer thin, rye and spelt crisp breads are perfect for eating with dips and pate. They store well and are great fun to make expecially if you make them with a buddy. One rolls the dough out and the other bakes.
Basic method that can be used to make many variations of proper Danish rye bread, far better than anything you can buy in the shops. Danish rye bread is of course excellent with all types of strong cheeses, all salty food, pickled herring, yellow pea soup, Danish sausages - and you can use it to make rye bread soup should you feel thus inclined.
