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.

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

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.

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.

Chappattis

Chappattis

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)

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

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.

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.

Danish Rye

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

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

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.

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 (https://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.

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.

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

This soda bread was brought about due to my brother and sister in laws lack of tolerance to gluten and yeast.

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.
