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…
Simple, delicious, full of flavour wholemeal sourdough bread.
Shipton Mill's Khorosan flour gives a lovely flavour, soft texture and gorgeous yellow glow to a loaf. Here I have made it using live yeast, and noticed a beautiful, warm old-fashioned aroma filling the kitchen whilst it was baking. Worth using fresh yeast for that alone. This recipe makes two large (2lb) loaves.
Khorasan Flour and Spelt make the best combination. You absolutely need to try it.
First attempt at Sourdough made using a mix of Khorassan and Canadian White bread flour.
An unusual bread full of flavour. This bread makes delicious cheese on toast
This loaf is made using 40% Khorasan organic wholemeal for a light wholemeal loaf with a sweet wheaten flavour. The dark rye leaven introduces a subtle sour note.
Shipton Mill flours inspire me every time I bake. I always order a selection of different flours and can highly recommend my 3 flour blend. These scones are so delicious, my partner has requested them at least once a week. That's really saying something, because I bake scones once in the blue moon! The colour is a beautiful golden/sandy colour which is from the Khorasan flour. The smell is divine and the flavour is really out of this world. I use raw (unpasteurised) butter, raw cream and milk. If you can't buy raw, use the best butter and cream you can buy. These first class ingredients take the familiar English scone into a different stratosphere. The 3 flours are, Chestnut, Khorasan and Type 45. You can use any white flour, but preferably a fine/light flour. I just happened to have an opened bag of Type 45 which needed using up. The recipe is my adaptation of a Richard Bertinet recipe. In our house, these scones have been elevated to breakfast! I hope you give it a go.
Delicious Buns made with Khorasan Flour, milk and honey.
Delicious slightly spicy flatbreads. Good with curries and alone.
This is more about the shape than the bread itself. A great one for Halloween, or just to make friends smile.
This interesting bread is made with a 100% khorasan sour dough starter and 100% khorasan flour for the final bread. It was a bit of an experiment but I liked how it turned out with a strong flavour and reasonable crumb. I based this recipe on the spelt leaven in Andrew Whitley's book 'Bread Matters' replacing the spelt with khorasan.
