These scones are wonderfully delicious and melt in your mouth. Additionally they are wholemeal, low in fat & sugar and healthy. They are best served with clotted cream and strawberry jam with a mug of hot chocolate!
Wonderful crisp Sourdough Crackers using the sourdough yeast you would otherwise discard
Quick to throw together for a tasty, comforting treat with a bowl of soup. Wild garlic is everywhere at the moment if you're lucky enough to be able to forage for it - grows in shady places, near water. If not, you can use chives instead.
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!
Great for using up sourdough starter discard

This Italian biscuits called biscotti which means twice baked are my favorite festive bakes . Give it a go, your house will smell festive for hours, your cookie jar will be full ( not for long ) they are a real treat, perfect gift for friends and family.
Panettone is a fickle, capricious beast in the truly Italian style, la donna è mobile and so is panettone. It sometimes doesn’t rise at all, especially if ingredients are not at the right temperature (eggs too cold, milk too hot). You need to be awfully patient through the mixing, folding, shaping and rise; it will take the best part of a day, not counting the sponge preparation the night before. But oh so rewarding if it rises and bakes impressively tall – the texture is Fluffy Central and it melts in your mouth wonderfully on Christmas morning.
Top tips: • Don’t skimp on the raising agent (self-raising flour alone doesn't seem to do the job) • Work the mixture as little as possible • Don’t roll too thinly before cutting • Cut straight down, no twisting • Don’t dribble egg wash down sides
Easy, luxurious, taste sensation pancakes, little effort needed, prepare night before and cook in the morning for a warming winter breakfast. Add maple syrup and a dusting of icing sugar and its heaven.

We indulged ourselves with these brioche treats over the weekend. I made them with love for the people I love the most..
I was given a friand tin for Christmas one year and I thought that the oval shape for little cakes was delightful. They will however taste just as good as small cakes cooked in a muffin tin. This recipe has been adapted as gluten free but are enjoyed by all, as they are a real treat.
This is an enriched loaf that I developed to celebrate the birth on the 11th of April 2017 of my first grandchild, Angelo Paul Milsom Alexandre, son of Sarah Louise Milsom Alexandre and her husband the Brazilian artist Wilson Cavalcante Alexandre. Pao Angelo immediately became Sarah's new favourite because both crumb and crust are soft, she says. The use of leaven with a complex provenance that includes elements from Puglia, Italy and San Francisco, California harkens back to my own childhood roots in the vineyards and orchards flanking the Russian River in northern California. For me it is richly symbolic: before being baked the tender crust was eggwashed and seeded representing new life and Easter, whilst the crumb, enriched with the best quality eggs, butter and milk, is redolent of the simple, yet exquisite dairy products from my pioneering maternal grandparents' farm on the Columbia River which forms the border between Oregon and Washington states where we often spent our Christmas and summer holidays. The plaited loaf is of 3 strands resembling the challah. It represents the strength of the three-fold cord and our interconnectedness as human beings who have been given the privilege of being stewards for a time of this wonderful planet. The blessing beneath (not illustrated) signifies that prayers have been said for the good health and well-being of those who contributed to it from the farmer who planted the grains of wheat and tended the fields until the harvest to the miller, the baker and, of course, for the well-being of those with whom Pao Angelo is shared. I hope you will enjoy this loaf as much as we do.

Crispy, sweet and savoury Vegan paratha
A seasonal recipe, it may be pie week, but the week started on Sunday with St Piran's day, the patron Saint of Cornwall. To celebrate, here's a veggie variation on the traditional Pasty theme.
This traditional and delicious Porridge can be made using the organic pinhead oatmeal, a little sea salt and water. As you may know pinhead oatmeal has very thick, rough grains and the larger pinhead grains require a longer cooking time (even pre-soaking).
A delicious way to use up extra starter.
Scones made with coconut oil and dairy free milk
These are a fresh look at the traditional mince pie, although this recipe works equally well with gluten-free mincemeat.
Gluten-free marzipan lovers can join the feasting with this version of traditional, yeasted German Christmas bread. Made using Shipton Mill bread mix flour, it is enriched with ground almonds and bejewelled with cranberries and apricot pieces soaked in port.
These gluten free muffins are a favourite with children. The addition of lemon zest and poppy seeds makes them really special.
One of my children's favourite breakfasts, warming, filling and delicious..
This pastry is truly 'short' and very yummy. Follow the method and make sure the dough is well chilled and rested before rolling out. Using cling film to encourage it into position means that the lovely soft dough will stay together - it really helps! But if you do find a couple of holes or cracks, just push them back together with your fingers.
This is one of my most popular cake especially during the summer months. It's light, moist and bursts with citrus and floral tones... I top it with crushed pistachios and rose petals for a middle eastern twist.
Vegetable samosas, you won't be able to eat only one!
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).
Easy and healthy waffles

If you enjoy making your own gluten-free blends from our range of flours, try starting your pastry experiments with this recipe: millet has a good magnesium content and the flour is lovely and creamy, and blending it with ground almonds and potato starch is a real winner.
A quick and easy recipe for perfect GF scones every time
Makes 18 mini madeleines. This recipe is based on the traditional Italian Castagnaccio cake with pine kernels and fresh rosemary, which was eaten a lot during WW2 in northern Italy when wheat flour was in short supply and chestnut flour was considered a poor alternative. We've adapted it to make mini madeleines with the unusual combination of rosemary and cranberries. They can be an acquired taste - particularly if you're used to traditional French madeleines which use egg white as a raising agent and icing sugar to sweeten which makes a very light, sweet mouthful - this healthy version is chewier with only a little sugar, and the chestnut flour is high in protein. Tip: 9-hole silicone moulds with the firm wire surround are easy to handle and the madeleines release easily
Moist and packed with flavour - these muffins are a real treat. Using vegetables in your cakes and muffins is a healthy option that adds flavour, colour and fibre to your recipe. Niki Segnit's Flavour Thesaurus describes toasted walnuts as having a 'hint of nicotine bitterness'; we've chosen to team them with earthy beetroot in this recipe (the recipe doesn't say toast the walnuts as the combined flavours work well without) and it works really well. The courgette provides a lovely succulent background, and the orange adds a final citrus burst. With all these flavours all you need is our white rice flour to provide the perfect base for a vegetable, fruit and nut muffin feast.
Luscious mix of fresh fruit muffins with a crusty almond topping, ideal with a cup of coffee for elevenses.
