Rye based starter and a little Spelt make for an extremely tasty loaf. Quantities given makes 2 loaves (or 1 very big one!). This is adapted from Foodgeek's 'Basic' recipe on Youtube to have a much higher wholemeal content.

Sourdough with toasted fennel seeds

Sourdough with toasted fennel seeds

A yummy caramelly sourdough with an added fresh aroma and flavour from the fennel. Great for sandwiches. I even like it with jam. You can do this without the fennel and it's still delicious. The method uses a Kenwood Chef. It makes two loaves with 900g total flour - a good size for a Kenwood Chef to cope with. This takes 50 hours over three days. My times assume you're free during the day, but you could adjust them to fit your schedule

All-Purpose Sourdough (Lazy Version)

All-Purpose Sourdough (Lazy Version)

Since the lock-down summer of 2020, all of the bread which we eat has been home-baked. Our sourdough workflow has evolved as we have gained more experience. We have tried to keep it quite straightforward. We use our starter straight from the fridge and make: • flatbread; • loaves in loaf tins; • bread rolls; • baguettes; • pizza; • a large loaf in a Dutch oven. All of the above can be made from the same sourdough. This "lazy version" sourdough does not get kneaded and neither do we perform folds and turns. The sourdough matures nicely in the fridge. It is still useable after 3-4 days, but the taste gets more sour as time elapses.


Easy Emmer Mixed

Spicy prune and cacao sourdough

Spicy prune and cacao sourdough

This has become my regular treat, since my expanding waistline persuaded me to stop making cakes and biscuits. Its complexity of flavours make a good substitute for a sugar hit. As a malty flavour fan, I use plum porter as the liquid in this recipe, which uses light malthouse flour - although this may be too much for some palates - feel free to substitute water for any proportion of porter in the recipe.

Very aromatic Greek Easter Tsoureki recipe

Very aromatic Greek Easter Tsoureki recipe

If you have ever spent Easter in Greece, you are probably very familiar with the smell of tsourekia emanating from all the bakeries, and we do have many, hinting that the end of fasting is approaching and it will not be long before we can all 'crack our red died eggs' wishing 'Christ is Risen' to each other. I struggled until I found the very strong Shipton Mill Canadian flour to get the texture that tsoureki should have. This recipe is utterly delicious and if you can;t get hold of the delightful masticha for its pine/cedar flavour, just flavour your tsoureki with the spices that you enjoy. Wonderful toasted for breakfast but it also makes the lightest 'bread and butter' pudding I have ever had! I will send the recipe for the tsoureki bread and butter pudding with my Easter newsletter, should you wish to subscribe on www.irinicooks.com

Seeded loaf

Seeded loaf

This is my take on a no knead seeded loaf, its a mix of white and seeded flour, with a nice light, holey texture. This loaf needs steam to give it it's lovely texture, so it will need to be cooked in a dutch oven or a casserole dish with a lid.

This is a wonderful loaf to bake after scavenging for chestnuts on a nice autumn forest walk.

Sourdough South African Seed Bread

Sourdough South African Seed Bread

This heavily seeded bread is particularly good toasted, and the high seed content gives it a very low glycaemic index (GI) - it has become my staple bread recipe. It is adapted from a recipe in Anthony Worrall Thompson's 'GI Diet'. It is very quick to make and only requires a single rising, in the tins. This bread always has a fairly flat top, although including a tray of boiling water in the oven during the bake helps it to rise a bit more during cooking.

Pagnotta Bread

This is a slower ferment which improves the flavour and uses less yeast and is easier than sour dough. Sometimes called a “sponge” or “poolish” dough.

Dutch style bread ('bruin brood') with malted rye and seeds

Dutch style bread ('bruin brood') with malted rye and seeds

Dutch brown bread is characterized by a soft crumb and a thin crispy crust. This version is based on sour-dough with fibres from wheat germ, bran and seeds. The slow fermentation serves to bring out the flavours of the flour and neutralizes the phytic acid allowing for more healthy nutrients. The malted rye enriches the dough by stimulating the fermentation and adds sweetness as well as a nice brown colour to the bread.

Shipton 5 Seed Mix Sweet Dinner Rolls (bread machine)

Shipton 5 Seed Mix Sweet Dinner Rolls (bread machine)

A beautifully soft white fluffy roll, a little like a supermarket soft white roll but with better texture, flavour and the benefit of the crunch from Shipton's delicious 5 Seed Mix (which we also add to pizza dough, because it's so good!.) These rolls keep well (much longer than supermarket rolls). Freeze them and pull a few out of the freezer a couple of hours before lunch or place the frozen rolls into a 180C (fan) oven for 5-10 mins for a delicious crust. Tip: We prove all our bread in the grill oven above the main oven. The grill oven stays off, but the main oven is set to 130C. We turn on the main oven as we take the dough out of the bread machine to give it about 10 mins to warm. The tray of rolls goes onto the floor of the grill oven with a sheet of baking paper gently rested on top (save the paper for on-going re-use).

Spelt and Wheat Sourdough Bread

Spelt and Wheat Sourdough Bread

Baking sourdough bread is what I do to brighten up my day. Having said that, it has also given me numerous headaches in the past. I’ve eaten (and thrown away) many very bad sourdough loaves in that time to finally come to a stage that I prefer my amateur and handmade bread than any other one from the bakery. Please read the whole recipe before to understand the method. Please visit my blog, where I share other recipes: clemandkaro.com

Granary Sourdough (airing cupboard fermentation)

Granary Sourdough (airing cupboard fermentation)

My first attempt at this recipe used just Light Malthouse flour, which made delicious bread, but with such a strong flavour that it overpowered everything it accompanied. I've added in wholemeal flour to make it a bit mellower and a little rice flour to help give a drier crumb. If you don't have rice flour, just use wholemeal flour instead. I've been making this for a few weeks now and this is my current favourite: a soft, open crumb and a big flavour, but not overpowering. It works well either toasted with jam or for savoury sandwiches. The airing cupboard gives the doughs a narrow temperature range, draught free: I prefer this to the kitchen worktop.

Fougasse

Fougasse

Originally these flatbreads were made when the first wheat was harvested each year. The shape and taste always evoke a ‘wow’ when served to family and friends.

Mini Malthouse

This is a delicious small loaf using 40% light malthouse flour, and it works every time. The recipe is based on the “Great French Bread Recipe” on this website. With just the two of us we needed a smaller loaf and really enjoy the added flavour from the light malthouse flour. After a few tweaks from the original recipe and halving the quantities, this is what I’ve come up with. Obviously you could scale it up for a larger loaf. Hope you like it

These baguettes are delicious on the day they are baked, a good crispy crust and moist crumb inside, great for sandwiches. I use a brown rice flour based sourdough starter which I keep in the fridge and refresh twice a week. There are plenty of websites which describe how to make this type of starter. This recipe also includes a little teff flour for extra flavour, but if this isn't available then increase the quantities of the other flours accordingly.

Seeded White Sourdough with airing cupboard fermentation

Seeded White Sourdough with airing cupboard fermentation

This recipe produces a sesame sourdough with an airy crumb and a good crust. The loaf has a subtle sour tang and a big sesame flavour and is very moreish! This sourdough uses the airing cupboard for a speedy fermentation, the warmer temperature decreases fermentation time and increases the production of acid. The dough is proved in the fridge overnight to give it a better oven spring next morning. The schedule assumes a Final Dough Temperature of 26-27C, I adjust my water temperature to get the dough in this range to match the ambient temperature of my airing cupboard (which fluctuates between 25-28C). The dough works fine outside these temperatures, but the timings might lengthen.

Walnut Sourdough

Walnut Sourdough

This is an overnight ferment studded with walnut, at 75% hydration so easy enough to handle but still wet enough for moist, open crumb. You must have a ripe, happy starter that at least doubles reliably. Your workspace need to not stray too far from 26.5c, otherwise you'll need to make adjustments to the fermentation time. Everything is done by hand, no kneading required!

Risborough Sourdough Sandwich Loaf

A light & airy bread with a nice chewey crust, made from Shipton Mills incredible Number 4 flour & 'Tina' my Sourdough starter which feeds off the natural yeasts from the Chilterns air in Princes Risborough Buckinghamshire. Great as it is naked or dipped into Chiltern Press Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Rapeseed oil or any which way you like. I normally would use a banneton for this but I thought I'd try shipton's wooden baskets & liners & it didn't disappoint. I based this recipe round the Shipton Mill sourdough recipe.

Light Rye or Malthouse Flour loaf for a Breadmaker

Light Rye or Malthouse Flour loaf for a Breadmaker

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 ...

Seeded Wholemeal Rye Sourdough with cracked rye and “old bread” flour starter

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.


Lemon Bread

Ftira (Maltese bread)

Ftira (Maltese bread)

Malta is famed as serving some of the best bread in the world. The use of a ‘Tinsila’ a piece of yesterday’s old dough, is used as a starter, much in the same way as for sourdough. Here’s my take on their classic.

Bolo do caco

Bolo do caco

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.

Soft & Fluffy White Japanese Hokkaido Loaf

Soft & Fluffy White Japanese Hokkaido Loaf

This recipe uses a tangzhong, which is basically a roux you make up from the flour and water (or milk) from your quantities you would use in the recipe. Added to a dough, once cooled, it makes the crumb very soft and pillowy, and also extends the shelf life.


Enriched Sourdough Plait

Enriched Sourdough Plait

Slightly sweetened softer sourdough bread. It is delicious at any time of day just with butter. Add jam and it is almost a brioche. Slices beautifully for sandwiches. If any is left it makes a wonderful bread & butter pudding.


Khorasan tin loaf with fennel

Khorasan tin loaf with fennel

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…


Sourdough for starters

Sourdough for starters

I've just started baking sourdough. I cast around for information and stumbled upon Jack Sturgess who has a pretty good web site and specifically a start to finish page and video for sourdough. This is based on Jack's beginners method and is producing pretty good results that I'm really pleased with. Next steps I'll start experimenting with maybe different flours in my starter and dough. Enjoy.

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!

With us all struggling to fill our store cupboards, and Shipton Mill working hard to fulfill those back orders, I came up with this scrumptious bread using what flour I had left in my larder.

Shipton seeded sourdough

Shipton seeded sourdough

A delicious mix of 25% Shiptons Wholemeal Strong Flour and 75% Seeded White. This is an ideal recipe to learn the basics of making sourdough bread. But remember it really all is dependent upon a starter that is just ready for making the loaf. This is the most important thing. It will be ready between 4-10hrs after feeding it. It will have doubled in size, and will have bubbles of different sizes. If in doubt do the float test. Carefully put a teaspoon of starter on the surface of a glass of water. If ready it will float. My starter dough is a wholemeal starter from the Handmade Bakery in Slaithwaite, West Yorkshire. They are very kind and happy to share.

Ossetian flat breads stuffed with chard

Ossetian flat breads stuffed with chard

Beetroot tops are often thrown away, which is a great shame as they taste delicious, especially in spring. Their flavour is sweet and earthy, reminiscent of chard. They use beet tops a lot in the Caucasus. This recipe is inspired by Ossetian pies. Ossetians are highlanders just North of Georgia. These pies are probably as old as the hills because traditionally three are served and each signifies a different element - earth, water and fire. I fell in love with their story, and with their outstanding flavour. They are normally brushed with melted butter as they come out of the oven, but I love to go one step further and smother them in beurre noisette. Try it, it will be the best thing you will eat this spring.

Organic Light Malthouse recipe for Morphy Richards Fastbake bread maker.

Organic Light Malthouse recipe for Morphy Richards Fastbake bread maker.

This lovely recipe is for the Morphy Richards Fastbake bread maker. It does seem to have quite a lot of ingredients but is well worth trying. It gives me a good, well risen heavy loaf that tastes really good and leaves me feeling satisfied after only one slice. When baking the bread, make sure there are no draughts around the bread maker (I've found that the lack of insulation in the Fastbake can mean the loaf doesn't rise properly if there are undue drops in surrounding temperature) and add the water and malt extract and mix so the water turns brown. Add all the other ingredients to a bowl and mix well before adding to the breadmaker which should be set to Menu ,3 Large Loaf, medium crust. Good baking and enjoy.


Seeded Half & Half Loaf (Large)

Seeded Half & Half Loaf (Large)

Wholemeal enriched with rye and boosted by a sourdough starter

Wholemeal enriched with rye and boosted by a sourdough starter

Whilst making wholemeal loaves I have been experimenting with adding a couple of ladles of wheat sourdough starter to the mix, along with the usual dried active yeast. The sourdough starter enhances the flavour and helps things to rise a bit more. Adding the sourdough starter adds a bit of extra water to the recipe and so this version has added 100 grams of Dark Rye Flour to absorb that extra water and to add to the flavour. The addition of 100 grams of seeded white flour also helps lighten the texture. The following recipe aims to produce two moist and tasty loaves.

Wholemeal sourdough bread with millet seed

Wholemeal sourdough bread with millet seed

Millet seed isn’t just for the birds, it also makes a delicious addition to sourdough wholemeal bread. My grandchildren love this bread as it breaks easily into pieces that they can snack on while waiting for dinner! It goes well with cheese and olives, and the millet seeds add a bit of a crunch to the texture. Sourdough starter is so good for flavour and the slow fermentation helps to break down gluten, so it’s great for those with gluten sensitivity. I love to use the more traditional varieties of wheat flour to make this bread as the nutritional value is enhanced as well as great flavour. Sometimes I substitute about 20% of the wheat flour with spelt or rye. It’s a bit more crumbly but my family love it with cheese. I use the sour dough starter in my bread maker, and check on the consistency as the dough is mixing. I always add some dried yeast as it gives a better rise in the bread maker, but if making by hand then I just use the sour dough starter for the rise.

Swiss Dark Baguettes

Swiss Dark Baguettes

An easy to make and fun to shape tasty baguette to which pretty much any savoury ingredients can be added for extra flavour. This baguette recipe is adapted from a formula known as the pain paliasse. Devised by a Swiss bakery it is unusually rustic (well, for the Swiss anyway) and is also less technically demanding to make than the traditional French baguette. Fermented all day (or overnight) then baked as soon as they are shaped, these Swiss Dark Baguettes fit easily into a busy schedule. Purists shouldn’t worry about skipping the proofing stage: the long, cold fermentation provides all the dough development and flavour you need. Be very gentle when handling the fermented dough during shaping. It’s the secret of success. A baking stone is highly recommended for this recipe. I regularly use chopped olives or sun-dried tomatoes (in photos), but fig and walnut is a great combination, as are roast peppers, chillies, preserved lemons, fresh rosemary and many more flavours. Feel free to experiment. Finally, don’t forget to use the Swiss Dark flour and add the diax malt: they add extra dimensions to the taste.

Spelt with sun-dried tomatoes

Spelt with sun-dried tomatoes

Fearing that a loaf made totally from Spelt Wholemeal flour might turn out to be rather dense I was hesitant to give it a try. However, allowing the mixer some extra minutes to work the dough plus adding some sourdough starter to the mix, seems to have made the difference. Using a loaf tin offers some support to the dough in its second proving and the end result is a loaf with excellent taste and texture. Creating a moist atmosphere in the oven before putting in the loaf seems to encourage a bit of ‘oven spring’. This recipe adds sun-dried tomatoes and some fennel seeds to enrich things. Another way of varying things is to reduce the Spelt to 400g and mix it with either 100g of Three Malts & Sunflower Brown Flour or 100g of Seeded White Organic Flour Using a sharp bread knife, it’s possible to cut thin slices which provide a tasty basis for lunchtime sandwiches. Now I just need to order some more Spelt Flour…

Sourdough Multi-seed 100% Rye Bread

Sourdough Multi-seed 100% Rye Bread

This is a lovely, rich flavoured bread. I adapted two excellent recipes to develop the recipe - one from the internet (link:https://www.seitanismymotor.com/2010/02/100-percent-rye-bread/ ) and the other from "The Extra Virgin Kitchen" by Susan Jane White. It has a more open texture than is usual for a 100% rye bread. It keeps well, and I think the flavour improves with keeping. Toasting it lightly brings out the flavour and it goes well with soft cheese, air dried ham or smoked salmon. My sourdough starter is 5 years old and is yeasty, not particularly sour-smelling. Unless it is very important to you for it to be 100% rye, without any wheat, you could use any sourdough starter. I find feeding the starter the day before using it, and keeping it at room temperature for several hours on the day, makes the bread lighter. This quantity of ingredients makes 2x1kg(2lb) loaves - I halve them and freeze. Have a go, experiment and enjoy!

A few tricks used: both the poolish and the dough were placed to raise sitting on a raised grill on top of the range (measured temperature of 25 degrees), and a bowl of water was placed inside the oven before baking, removed then 10 minutes after the loaf was placed in the oven.

Odds and Ends Loaves

Odds and Ends Loaves

Sourdough loaves using what I could find in the pantry. Sometimes you don't have time to find something specific but just go with what is there. The bread has just enough malt loaf flour in to give it a soft malty "stickiness" that loves butter. the (unsoaked) pumpernickel gives it an extra bit of crunch. The quantities are about right - worked backwards - the important thing is a soft flexible dough that kneads easily without sticking to the surface. It was a slow rise partly due to the kitchen being a bit cooler than usual, snowing outside!

Pao Angelo

Pao Angelo

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.


Pumpkin and walnut sourdough

Perfect bread for the autumn, although it can be prepared all year round as long as you find pumpkin. Really great along a good blue cheese.

Malted Bread with added seeds

This lovely flavoured seed bread is made using Organic Light Malthouse flour (301), White Strong flour along with Pumpkin, Linseed and Sunflower seeds. Always delicious and very moorish.

Scottish Morning Rolls

This classic roll is usually found in every shop in the west coast of Scotland: a crispy exterior; soft, fluffy interior and perfect with lorne sausage and tattie scone! Traditionally, these rolls are not risen via the use of a wholemeal leaven but this adds a flavour that is irresistible and provides health benefits to this humble roll.


Rye Vollkornbrot

Rye Vollkornbrot

German style wholegrain rye bread. Great with savoury toppings or toasted with honey.


Three Malts with a hint of rye sourdough

Three Malts with a hint of rye sourdough

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.


Overnight cold proved sourdough

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!


Spelt Sourdough Levain

Spelt Sourdough Levain

This makes a nutty, flavoursome, well keeping loaf. The recipe makes 2 loaves @ 700g each. Although not essential, the method is spread over 3 days to increase flavour and provide flexibility with “normal” life. Dutch ovens are used for baking, but anything which gives a solid blast of heat and traps steam for the first half of baking would work just as well.

Basic sour dough bread

Basic sour dough bread

After many years of prevarication, I finally succumbed to the pull of sour dough! This recipe is very straightforward to make sour dough, the only thing you need is time for proving! This recipe uses the 'sponge' method. This recipe is certainly not mine, it comes from the River Cottage Bread book. If you want a good general introduction to bread making, of all types, this book is a fantastic place to start. This bread takes about 36 hours to make. You will have to make a sour dough 'starter', which, if you have not got one already, needs to be started a week before this recipe. This sounds a lot of time and hassle, but once your starter' is going, it really is no trouble at all. I used the starter recipe from the River Cottage bread book. The starter 'recipe' is included at the bottom of the recipe.

Easy, healthy chapattis. These wholemeal breads perfectly complement a vegetarian curry dish.


Onion and Thyme Bread

Onion and Thyme Bread

This is a bread that I have been making for a few years now and have arrived at this recipe by experimentation. The quantities of onion and thyme seem to work OK but can be varied to suit personal taste. For some reason unknown to me, I find this bread does actually keep fresh for a day or two longer than a basic bread, although the aroma of the onions and thyme make it so appetising to me that it rarely has chance to go stale.


Excellent Brown Bread using Spelt.

Excellent Brown Bread using Spelt.

There are many people who have slight digestive issues. These can be in the form of bloating, indigestion, colic, flatulence and diarrhoea or constipation. These can be caused in some people by a unknown mild intolerance to the gluten in wheat, rye, oats and barley. Spelt is an ancient form of wheat and the gluten in the flour is of a different form to other wheats and many people have found improvements in the comfort of their insides just by switching to bread and pastry made from spelt flour. Spelt white and wholemeal flour is now available in many supermarkets and is only around £2 per kilo which is a small price to pay for comfort. It works out at £1 per loaf and is surely worth a try. I have found that the conventional way of making bread with a double prove does not work quite so well so I have been developing this method. I do not use a bread-maker so cannot advise on the method with one of these.


Scandinavian Cracked Rye Bread (2/3 rye, 1/3 white)

Olympic bread was inspired by the tastes of Greece, fresh produce of summer and the start of the Rio Olympics. Tested out on my neighbours and sold at our fortnightly village market where I bake bread to sell to raise money to restore our Church Bells, it has had good feedback! The olive tins in the picture are being used to grow tomatoes, which is working well.

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.

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.

London Grillettes

London Grillettes

In January, I married a French man. He has been living in London for almost 6 years now, and sorely misses baguettes. Our London flat’s little oven is too small to bake full-sized baguettes, so I’ve been developing a “half-pint” version that fits inside, while capturing the characteristics we love in baguettes. The “grillette” is: 1/ Crusty, in our case a deep golden brown, grilled, sometimes burnt in places… hence the name “grillette”! 2/ Airy, big holes, light. 3/ Slightly salted. The right amount is critical. Those holes come from a long, slow rise. The recipe takes time but entails very little hands-on work, and you will finish with an irresistable partner for butter and cheese.


Damson couronne

Damson couronne

Twisted and plaited crown shaped loaf flavoured with a smooth damson purée jam, made using an overnight sponge.


Crusty Spelt & Wheat Loaf

Crusty Spelt & Wheat Loaf

A soft and crusty spelt loaf - 50:50 with white flour. My grandchildren say that this is the tastiest bread in the world (though they are biased!). This loaf uses a Spelt Poolish preferment to give added flavour.

Wholemeal Seeded Tin (Grantalike no knead)

Wholemeal Seeded Tin (Grantalike no knead)

This loaf is about the simplest, most delicious wholemeal seeded loaf you can make. Based on Doris Grant’s no-knead recipe, the added seeds add great flavour and texture and actually seem to assist the rising dough’s stability. The dough mix should be too wet to knead by hand, but surprisingly if you get the water content right (depending on the flour used you may need to add a little more than shown in the recipe), just mixing the ingredients with a wooden spoon or Danish whisk and folding onto itself a few times, you will still get a reasonably open crumb. (Certainly not as dense as you might imagine for a cake-like dough with a short in-tin proofing.)


White & Wheat Seeded Sourdough - (overnight cold proving)

White & Wheat Seeded Sourdough - (overnight cold proving)

This is a variation on the sourdough bread recipe taught at the E5 Bakehouse bread master class in Hackney, London. A very moist dough with a great open crumb and superb crust. Best made using a regular stretch and fold method with wet hands each time, plus a slow overnight proving in the fridge to give the bread its open crumb and depth of flavour. The cold proofing also helps the dough hold its shape while transferring from the bowl via the peel to the oven. (Don’t worry about putting straight into the oven from the fridge. If the oven is at max heat - approx. 250c - then it will spring up beautifully.)


Potato Bread

Potato Bread

Spelt bread recipe for breadmaker

This is the most delicious, healthy, moist but light spelt bread for breadmakers. It has a little wholemeal wheat flour in to improve the crumb. The bread stays moist and lovely for several days and also makes excellent toast.


Simple seeded loaf with rye

Simple seeded loaf with 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.

Very tasty everyday 1.5lb(680g) loaf

Very tasty everyday 1.5lb(680g) loaf

A small tasty loaf which is very easy to make. I almost always make this loaf in a bread machine and it comes out perfectly every time. Occasionally I use a wood fired bread oven.The results are variable and dependent upon me getting the fire right ! Having originally used warm water I find the bread has always risen better using cold water in my machine. I like this recipe because of the use of organic materials and because it is light on salt. I do make lots of other breads but always come back to this recipe for an everyday loaf because it looks good, tastes good and is a consistently well risen loaf


Gluten-Free Sorghum & Buckwheat Yeasted Bread

Gluten-Free Sorghum & Buckwheat Yeasted Bread

If you use a longish 25x10cm loaf tin, together with a baking sheet for a lid in this recipe, you'll get light loaf, delicious toasted and great with savoury toppings. Using a baking tray for a 'lid' converts your tin into a 'Pullman Loaf' tin, so called because the long narrow shape resembles a train carriage, and makes lots of slices for sandwiches. The lid helps to keep the steam in and preventing it from drying out whilst baking, and the loaf rises to fill the rectangular shape giving you the perfect slice every time.

Ellie's Grain-free Seed Loaf

Ellie's Grain-free Seed Loaf

This really easy quick recipe is great for those who are wheat intolerant. As it is made rather like a cake and does not use yeast, there is no waiting around for it to rise. The seeds give a granary bread texture to it and it can be used to make sandwiches or toasted with melted cheese just like normal bread. This is a regular for my childrens' lunch boxes and it is especially handy for those whose schools have a nut ban.

This is a baseline recipe and method that is easy to use and on which you can base further experiments, e.g. developing herbal bread types.


Crusty white loaf (x2)

Crusty white loaf (x2)

I know white bread is frowned on but as someone who loves any kind of bread, I love this white crispy loaf made with Shipton Mills's Canadian strong bread flour


The Menhir Sarrasin - A Breton Buckwheat loaf

The Menhir Sarrasin - A Breton Buckwheat loaf

Russet red-brown buckwheat loaf made distinctive by the addition of roast buckwheat flour. Bake a dozen and you could build your own Stonehenge. Or Breadhenge. The menhir (standing stone) shape is easily made before the final proof. I love it when your own take on a bread is the latest addition to a chain that extends back into the mists of time. In this case, I was inspired by the Farine blog (http://www.farine-mc.com/2015/05/meet-baker-eric-marche.html) article about Breton-based baker Éric Marché. In the blogpost MC writes about how M.Marché roasts a small percentage of the buckwheat flour in his menhir-shaped loaves. I’ve never been a huge fan of buckwheat bread, but this sounded worth a try. It was. It’s a great idea. Delicious. This is my version of Éric Marché's loaf, using, as a template, Dan Leader’s Buckwheat Bâtard recipe which, apparently, he adapted, in turn, from an Éric Kayser recipe. Anyway, I hope I've done them justice. Alternatively, substitute half the strong bread flour for wholemeal and you'll get a darker loaf more akin to M.Marché's original. Great with cheese or cured meats.

My Pain de Mie

My Pain de Mie

A taste of France! The picture of a 'croquet monsieur' in 'Dough' (Richard Bertinet) is so mouth watering that I had to make it. It's a posh cheese and ham sarnie, baked with ham, béchamel sauce and topped with grated gruyere cheese. A very fine and delicious combination. Pain de mie is a fragrant and different loaf which makes a welcome addition to bread making. Perfect for toasting too. You'll see from the picture that I made 2 loaves. The top crust on the loaf on the left is slightly crooked. I knocked the weighted tray in the oven! It didn't make a difference to the taste and lets face it... once it's sliced, who's to know? This recipe is quick to make because of the high quantity of yeast. Again, a welcome change to my usual 24 hour fridge fermentation.

Soda Bread cooked in a large slow cooker (SIX LITRE)

Soda Bread cooked in a large slow cooker (SIX LITRE)

Soda bread made like this doesn`t dry out as it does in an oven so the outside stays soft rather than having a crust. It is lovely and soft, and cake like in texture. It`s very quick to make and doesn`t use as much energy as using an oven,and keeps quite well. Soda bread rises better with pastry flour than strong flour and has a better texture because it has less Gluten.

When thinking about delicious sandwiches, including the bread in the overall sense of the desired taste rather than just using plain boring bread can lead to amazing results. We are currently experimenting with savoury and sometimes very spicy bread types. This is a very simple bread which works well with e.g. most cheeses, egg salad and some types of pâté.

Biga Acida (Innovative) Pagnotta

Biga Acida (Innovative) Pagnotta

Italian biga acida/sour dough, using Italian '00' flour and strong bread flour. Based on a recipe from Dan Lepard and Richard Whittington 'Exceptional Breads'. The original recipe called for the inclusion of honey which made the bread too sweet for my taste. I have made this without honey and it works well and suited better to my personal taste. I replaced the wholemeal with spelt and used strong Canadian bread flour. Allow 5 days to make this bread. On the day of baking it could take up to 8 hours from the first kneading until the loaves are ready to go in the oven.

Turmeric, beetroot and chilli loaf in breadmaker.

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.

I based this recipe on the spelt leaven in Andrew Whitley's book 'Bread Matters' replacing the spelt with khorasan.

Intolerant Soda Bread

This soda bread was brought about due to my brother and sister in laws lack of tolerance to gluten and yeast. The use of spelt and rye blends of plain and wholemeal go well to create good flavour and texture, addition of mixed seeds and flakes give the bread a more wholesome substance. The use of natural yojurt and milk iin the mix to replace buttermilk gives an improved depth of flavour.

Honey Bear Bread....(Honey-ied Pear and walnut bread)

Honey Bear Bread....(Honey-ied Pear and walnut bread)

A lovely wholemeal/organic white bread with a delicate walnut crunch and sweet pears poached in mead with an extra hint of honey. This little beauty can be made with a 60/40 mix of wholemeal / white or add light rye flour for a little extra flavour. Rye gives it a stronger texture. When I lived in Germany, Birnenbrot was always made with light rye flour. My two young boys however are not fooled by me trying things different on the bread front, so you can use wholemeal which keeps the crumb soft! We adults enjoy this with a bit of gorganzola , camembert, or Roquefort (no need for chutney) and a lovely glass of your favourite red or white wine. The boys love this for breakfast too, warmed up with butter. I used Lindisfarne Mead from a recent trip at Easter, but apple juice works just as well.
