Excellent for picnics, accompanying soup or just as a snack by itself. They freeze very well and I tend to bake 3 batches in one go every few weeks as they are a perfect after school snack and a great way to utilise my very prolific sage plant!
This is my take on a 5 seeded baguette (baguette cereales) I love to buy when visiting France. I use a breadmaker to mix dough, hand shape into baguette shapes and cook on silicon lining on baguette tray.
This is a great staple gluten free loaf which I bake regularly every week. It's full of flavour and delicious eaten during the next 24 hours. After that it makes excellent toast for several days or can also be sliced and frozen for toasting at any time.
Crusty white dutch pot cooked sour dough - if you have ever despaired at making your sour dough rise despair no longer, i was once you, but this is my perfected technique!
Our everyday loaf full of body and texture. We eat it as toast with peanut butter and as sandwiches - ham, cheese, mustard and salad or roast chicken, stuffing and mayo our favourites! Never fails for a chewy, heavily grained, substantial wholemeal loaf.

A delicious, chewy, satisfying nutritious rye bread packed with flavour from the added dried fruit and seeds.
A georgous malted cheese sourdough.
This is a simple sourdough loaf using Shipton Mill No 4 flour and a small percentage of organic wholemeal. I use light rye flour for my starter and the leaven is made with No 4 flour. I start the leaven in the morning and the loaf around 3 o’clock in the afternoon. At around eight o’clock it is ready to go in the fridge over night. I bake the loaf straight from the fridge in a Dutch oven which has been in the AGA overnight. Its a really delicious uncomplicated loaf with a nice brown crust - thats the best bit.

Sourdough bread with a crunchy crust and delicious malty flavour!
Back in the day Stokies would pass half a dozen Oatcake Shops to buy from their favourite place. It's all about the texture, flavour "and 'em not being being too thick, duck". In homage to High Lane, Tunstall I now make these in exile at home in the Welsh hills on a cast iron planc usually used for Welsh Cakes.
I use a bread machine to make the dough but you can do by hand too.
Based on a Panasonic sd-zb2502 wholemeal loaf recipe. Makes a perfect, delicious loaf with or without seeds. This loaf has a slight nutty taste from the rye flour and makes the loaf slightly more substantial than a standard wholemeal loaf with without the real heaviness of a rye loaf
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. You can use any starter (though this may alter the balance slightly), and increase or decrease the spelt content (even leave it out if you don't have any, just use the same additional amount of WM).
Very simple garlic bread, only takes a few minutes to make
OK, so if like me you love a toasted teacake with a generous helping (slice) of butter on it you just have to try this recipe. Some of the steps may seem a little excessive (like the 24hr cognac bath for the raisins) but trust me – the results are worth it.

A really flavoursome, nutty, savoury and crusty wholemeal loaf. Perfect to eat with Summer salads, to accompany a cheese board or to have wirh a bowl of soup
Tasty and springy textured loaf. It's taken some experimentation to get a spelt and rye recipe to work in my Panasonic SD254, which doesn't cater for these flours. But the following recipe produces great loaves baked on the wholemeal rapid setting. I weigh the water for more accurate results: 1gm= 1ml

This was adopted from a recipe I found on youtube, but I just tweaked it myself, its 75% White Spelt Shipton Mill, with 25% wholemeal Shipton Mill stone ground flour. 73% Hydration with extra sesame seeds and some mixed seeds. Its a perfect loaf with great flavour and taste, the seeds work nicely too.
Lovely easy Sourdough loaf with a great crust
A chewy fruity loaf with a good rise and crusty bake.
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

Easy brioche to realise. The difficult part is the planning, read the recipe before you start. Will keep well for several days if wrapped in a plastic bag. Freeze fantastically well. Versatile shape. Note that you need a kitchen robot for this recipe. I use a Kitchenaid.

No Knead Sourdough!
I have tried various recipes for wraps and this is by far the best. The dough is easy to work with and wraps are made quickly with few ingredients.

A beautiful bread to cover all toppings, whether your choice is homemade jams and jellies or cheeses.
This is my Lockdown sourdough recipe that i have perfected over the past year and now keep the bread bin stocked with afresh loaf or 2 every week.
Easy recipe, Evening - Feed starter, Next morning mix and fold dough, Same afternoon Bake
Rich, caramelised crust meets an open, soft crumb with delightfully nutty undertones and a subtle sour tang. Perfectly paired with a strong blue cheese!
This is my 24hr wholemeal sourdough recipe using Shipton Mill bread flour. It tastes a lot better than shop bought, although I may be biased.
I use a slightly higher salt ratio due to the increased hydration, and it probably also adds to the already long shelf life of the loaf too.
Golden tasty Spelt sourdough
I’ve not tried Swiss Dark flour before so I mixed 50% with strong white to make these fantastically tasty, chewy, holey loaves!
A white, rye and spelt loaf with a poppy seeds topping.

This simple grissini recipe is quick to put together and a great way for all of the family to get involved with shaping dough. Obviously the thinner the better in terms of crispiness but our kids loved experimenting with lots of different shapes and it was all good!
Perfect Hackney Sourdough
Moreish Muffins using my three flour sourdough leaven
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.
This is a lovely simple loaf which makes a great accompaniment to a warming soup on a cold winter's day. The emmer gives the bread a toffee like aroma and a taste of toasted nuts.
A basic sourdough sandwich loaf
An authentic taste of home. Make sure you ask around for a good starter from a friend!
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.
Onion flavoured Wholemeal Sourdough (Zwiebelbrot) - one Sesame seed crusted and one Poppy Seed crusted

Great with smoked fish, butter and cheese, pickles or whatever you fancy
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
Delicious overnight sourdough using a mixture of malted flours to enhance the flavour and texture, with a pinch of instant yeast to help the loaf spring and not be too sour

Olive loaf using spelt sourdough starter, ciabatta flour, salt, olive oil and green pitted olives
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
Beautiful fig, spelt and pumpkin seed sourdough loaves - different style on the shape and scoring but same batch.

Basic sourdough recipe but replace half the water with your favourite beer for a lovely hoppy flavour note..adding some honey gives an extra dimension!
A good dollop of honey makes this recipe.
This is a great tasting and easy multigrain 2 lb / 900 g loaf pan or Dutch oven bread with a scald that works well to soften the crumb and prolong the life of the bread, producing a wonderful texture that also freezes well. This is my first self created bread recipe, it's defo a keeper, maybe even the best bread I ever tasted.
Lovely light and sweet malty loaf, great for toasting
Two Sourdough breads
A really nice nutty loaf using a combination of White and Brown flours

An Oatmeal and Brown Flour Everyday Bread
A simple white bagel recipe adapted from various online sources.
Delicious 100% white spelt loaf which has a bit more body and colour than white wheat. This recipe worked well in a Panasonic SD254 which isn't meant to bake spelt loaves, but I selected the basic white rapid programme to get closest to the kneading and baking times stipulated for spelt if you had the Panasonic SD255 which includes a spelt programme.
Great tasting, easy to make daily bread? Full of a variety of seeded goodness
This is a deep flavoured sourdough bread. The heritage flour makes for a soft, silky crumb and a dark crispy crust.
Excellent Bagels with a Shipton Mill twist:- they are delicious with cream cheese, salmon, jam or just butter

This is recipe on traditional baked goods we eat in Czech Republic as substitution to bread, but it tastes totally different than bread.

Easy homemade crusty bread with a soft crumb and so delicious.
Wide strong holes, a light and springy crumb and a fervent fermented flavour.
Gluten Free (GF) Teff Loaf for a Bread-maker - I find that this loaf is better in the bread-maker compared to my efforts in the oven. This does only make a small loaf but this bread is so much better fresh...I always eat more on the day it's made, particularly if it is still warm! I personally think teff makes a tasty loaf...so many gluten free loaves are rather bland!
Silky soft Hokkaido-style milk bread. Texture softened with use of yudane and flavour enhanced by the slow fermentation of a milk biga (preferment)
A delicious tear and share bread that perfectly compliments a good cheese.

Milk bread with a soft fluffy crumb is very popular in Korea, Japan, Taiwan and China.
This is a lightly sweet and comforting sourdough with unusally soft crumb, thanks to butter in the mix. It's possibly even better towards the end, toasted! Roasted nuts, soft fruit, fibre, beautiful crumb -- what's not to like?
Great for toast or savoury sandwiches. The combination of flavours and texture of the berries and seeds in this bread makes it really special. You can choose to make it lighter with all white flour or a little more dense by substituting some of the white flour for wholemeal.
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.
Vegan, oil free, salt free sugar free soft and stodgy bread.
A gorgeous, delicious and easy recipe - sure to impress!
1 hour prep and cook. Serves 6+. Best with a curry!

Fruit & Nut Sourdough Bread with a Spelt and Rye blent
This sourdough recipe combines 3 different flour types along with date syrup and treacle. It produces a really flavoursome and rich bread great for everything. It's somewhere between a traditional dark rye and a wholemeal sourdough.
Fill your house with the smell of home cooked fresh bread which is better than any shop bought bread
This is a wonderful loaf to bake after scavenging for chestnuts on a nice autumn forest walk. The longer fermentation that sourdough allows the chestnuts to impart a bit more flavour on the final bread. The chestnuts work really well with the nutty flavour of Spelt, while the strong white flour gives it the necessary strength.
A lot of Medieval breads made use of oats, so for this soda bread, I've used oats in place of some of the flour. It is vegan friendly.
Three flours mixed together give a crusty, tasty loaf which has a firm texture, some crumb, and holds its crust.
I have played around with rye bread for ages, with varying success, but have finally found that this is reliable, delicious and easy to make in my breadmaker. Comes out right every time!

A delicious, tear-apart bread that you can flavour in a zillion ways. My favourite is saffron and garlic, but you can make sweet versions too.
Amazing bread perfect for wet autumn days. Full of healthy stuff such as pumpkin puree and lots of seeds. The dough it fairly hydrated and more suitable for semi to experienced bakers. (But if you are a beginner and want to try it anyway just google few videos 'how to shape high hydration dough' and GO FOR IT!)
Basic Country Bread recipe made with love and care!
We've become so addicted to sourdoughs. Nothing else will do in the family now. This recipe speeds the process up without losing any of that wonderful flavour.
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.
These rolls are an enriched dough, really soft springy and so tasty. Also kind to your teeth. They also freeze really well if I can stop my husband eating them.
As easy as it gets - 4 good sized rolls.
So this still tastes great, mark my words. I am just on a quest to eat beautiful foods day by day rather then week by week because of how bad they actually might be for you! These are prefect for a midweek burger - far less guilt about smashing back tons and tons of butter!!!
This recipe uses Cultured Guru’s sourdough bagel recipe/method, to which I’ve added fruit and whole meal flour to make a lovely breakfast bagel.
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. I baked this for the first time at a wonderful baking course at Tuxford Windmill in Nottinghamshire several years ago and have recently started using it again as it enables my yeast stocks to last a bit longer.
A rich soft crumby soda bread with a low gluten content made on the hob in a rustic style.
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.
Fresh slices of this savoury bread provide an excellent accompaniment to all sorts of cheeses. A lovely smell of Rosemary filled the kitchen when we toasted a few left-over slices.
Moist and delicious tea loaf made with whole meal flour, bran flakes and plump, juicy sultanas - a family favourite.
Good option for those who want a tastier healthier bread
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).

Easy sourdough which can be baked on the day or can be left in the fridge for up to 18 hours
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!

A quick easy daily bread that keeps and freezes well
A white bloomer with a small ammount of wholemeal flour for added flavour and texture.
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
These little beauties are my first time of using Shipton Mills Finest No 1 white bread flour and Organic 100% wholemeal flour. The recipe produces a lovely soft centre with a slight crisp crust. Lovely when toasted under the grill and covered in local Berkeley Farm Dairy organic lightly salted butter. The recipe will make 2 x 1lb loaves or 1 x 2lb loaf.

Tasty wholemeal loaf made overnight giving a satisfying chewy texture
This is a sweet take on a sourdough loaf. It makes amazing breakfast toast!
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.
Simple to make with only 4 ingredients. Cooked on a griddle or heavy frying pan. Free from dairy and palm oil. The dough can be made in advance and then quickly cooked and served hot.
Deliciously tasty and healthy artisan bread that gets wonderful compliments !

Absolutely delicious spelt fig and pumpkin seed soda bread - just 4 ingredients
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.

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
Really nice simple loaf. Great staple to master.
Our weekly go-to white bread! Use Menu Option 1 - Normal White Bread ( for a non Panasonic machine the normal white bread time may be less than the 4 hours of the Panasonic but should still be good)

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.
An easy sourdough recipe.

A chewy but crisp pizza base - mmm!
My husband loves this bread and I love adapting it to use whatever flour, seeds and spices I have to use. You can also add in grated vegetables, or chopped cheese, nuts, dates, fruity bits, if you fancy a change.
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.
A really moist and tasty seeded loaf for perfect breakfast toast
A sourdough bread with Middle Eastern flavours. Tahini and molasses add a lovely depth to the taste of this bread.

Brioche style burger buns which are soft and chewy with a light sweet buttery flavour. Topped with sesame seeds for that proper burger experience!
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!
Nutty and unique
Sourdough with tasty, soft inside and crispy crust
When I Inter-railed around the Peloponnese in the summer of '82 we lived off maize bread like this, eating it with big ripe tomatoes. It kept great in the top of my trusty Karrimor rucksack.
Easy and quick to make, filled with falafel salad. Much finer than the list of ingredients would suggest,
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.
This is a very easy, no yeast, quick bake recipe for sweet or savoury soda bread that can be easily adapted for various dietary requirements and responds well to whatever additional ingredients or flavours that you want. It also lasts extremely well.

Delicious flatbreads using up sourdough starter. Perfect accompaniment for a BBQ!
Brioche is a bread of French origin that is similar to a highly enriched pastry, and whose high egg and butter content give it a rich and tender crumb. I love making halloumi burgers with this recipe, yum!
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 ...
Easy shape sourdough, if you make a mix too wet to mold into a boule.
Sourdough with a Rye starter, 50% malthouse flour and added sunflower seeds.
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.
A moist fluffy lemon bread which goes lovely with a cup of your favourite hot drink
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.
Looking for light and fluffy focaccia? Look no further!!!
Not too sweet, moreish and perfect for sharing. A great way to feed a crowd.
Fool proof sourdough which is the basis for any loaf to then experiment with flavours
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.
Nutritious and yummy seeded sourdough
A delicious and light wholemeal bread that keeps well. It's made using yeast and overnight proofing. It goes well with a variety of toppings or just butter. It's flavour develops for a couple of days after baking.

Delicious treat for those of us who adore mature cheddar and Parmesan cheeses together with caramelised onions with fresh baked bread and lashings of dairy butter!!
The non-sweet version of hot cross buns, dutch raisin rolls are best served with a think layer of butter and gouda cheese!
Tried and tested after following the many different options online - this works really well for me as a way to maximise taste and texture and minimise mess at home.
Perfect Sourdough Loaf from Shipton Mill's Head Baker, Chris Holister
Perfect for elevenses.
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.
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.
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…
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.

Easy white, rye and spelt flour sourdough bread
Pillow soft floury white baps, great oven spring. Try them and you'll never go back to shop bought.
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!

Delicious white sourdough
An indulgent and heavenly tasting traditional fruit bread from my homeland that, for me, evokes that sense of “hiraeth”.
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. It combines a malted, sunflower seeded flour, with Khorasan Heritage flour, and a smattering of Italian 00 (Which was all the white flour I had left!
We had this bread with a meal in a New Zealand winery near Napier, it was so good we asked for the recipe. I have uploaded a photo of the lupins which were all in flower when we were there with acres of them stretching into the distance all blue, pink, purple and yellow.

It's been great fun to experiment with different ratios and I have found the ideal recipe for me. Do you agree? I just love sunflower seeds but it's also good with pumpkin seeds which make it much more chuinky. Finer seeds like chia, sesame and millet are also good - find the one you like best, or just switch it around.
Lovely crusty cob using a sourdough sponge ferment with a touch of yeast
The look and taste is tantalising - Sandwich bread with Sourdough Dough - Your sandwich will taste lovely

White sourdough boule
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.
I feel in love with this bread, you will too !!
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.
A tasty, easy, no knead bread. This is for a single loaf
Soft bread rolls preparing dough in a Breadmaker and baking in the oven

A delicious and rich, banana bread. Great for breakfast, snack, or dessert.
A nutty and slightly sweet crunchy loaf - great for freezing whole or portioned slices
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.
Specialty bread from France, that can be found in any bakery there.
A chilli/cheese/onion flavoured wholemeal bread, with a rich cheesy crust. Light in texture, and if a stronger flavour is preferred, hotter chilli’s can be substituted! It is a modified 50:50 wholemeal loaf recipe which uses a (Panasonic SD-2500) bread machine for much of the work.

A delicious sourdough that tastes great (like real bread!) and smells amazing. Lactose and egg free too!
This wholemeal loaf is partly made with Shipton Mills coarse wholemeal flour to which I add millet and chia seeds.
It's impossible to buy organic gluten (and lactose) free bread , so it has been well worth persevering to find a reliable, delicious recipe for an organic loaf. Not only does it have the added benefit of being free from the long list of additives found in commercial gluten free products, but there is also no xanthan gum, which is so often found in home baked gluten free bread machine recipes.

10% Wholemeal 90% White Sourdough Boule
This loaf provides a slice of love and happiness. Its golden colour is due to Saffron, which not only radiates sunshine but is super healthy, containing antioxidants, whose antidepressant properties protects brain cells and improves inflammation. The honey gives a glorious depth of sweetness. The classic bloomer shape and distinctive markings emits slashes of splendid yellow contrasting with the white floury exterior. You can’t help but smile when you see it. Divine with cheese and makes a heavenly bread and butter pudding.
I love the taste of this ancient grain, Einkorn is so good for you too!
This bread is absolutely delicious! You will have to force yourself to put the loaf down! it's also very easy to do. My first attempt was a 100% success.

Seeds and Shipton Mill's Organic Light Malthouse flour combine to make the bread we would not be without!
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.
This half white/half wholemeal large loaf with seeds & a bit of rye makes a good daily loaf and you can throw in some excess sourdough culture if you have it (from refreshing your 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.
First attempt at Sourdough made using a mix of Khorassan and Canadian White bread flour.
This is a sour dough cheat, tasting enough like the real thing that it slows down the two-legged mice living with me who prefer and wolf down "normal" bread.
Big, fluffy and naughty
Delicious, the most basic and proper sourdough bread recipe!
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.
Delicious fluffy rolls which smell of butter and sprinkled with poppy seeds on top to intensify the crunchiness.

Brown Loaf small loaf
Amazing white bread that you cannot leave alone!! Will make 2 good sized loafs, or numerous white rolls if wanted. I normally cook one loaf on the day and after the second rise place 2nd shaped bread in the fridge overnight, and after leaving at room temp for an hour or two, cook in same way.
Most recipes for so called 'Rye' bread include wheat flour. So, if you have a sensitivity to wheat gluten, these recipes are no good for you.

A delicious bacon sourdough with a crispy crust and moist interior. Recipe Adapted from Ken Forkish’s Flour Water Salt Yeast.
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.

Delicious,full of flavor and healthy sourdough with amazing and rustic crust!Yum!
75% hydration sourdough loaf with white flour and a rye starter.
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…

The small amount of wholemeal in the starter gives the crumb a lovely colour. Wait as the loaf cools and listen to it sing. This loaf freezes well, as you can see from the picture. Enjoy
A delicious combination of Shipton flours and seeds. This sourdough loaf is a blend of 90% Shipton Traditional Organic White Flour and 10% Barley Flour. It also has Shipton's 5 seed blend. The seeds add a toasty crunch and the combination of flours make a fabulous soft-ish crumb. It really is delicious. The dough was retarded overnight in the fridge. This is one of the loaves I teach at Learn Sourdough www.learnsourdough.co.uk
Don’t be put off by the title. This bread is proper lush. My teenage daughter and her friends prefer this to gluten bread.
These are a traditional Indian bread, perfect with Chilli Paneer or Dal. A great alternative to rice. This recipe is gluten free. It taste great and is a nice light texture, though it doesn't always puff as much a wheat Puri.
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!

Reliable breadmaker recipe
This loaf is deliciously moist and keeps for several day.
This bread is made from rye flour and sourdough with just some water and salt. High in fibre, wheat free and perfect as toaster with soft cheese or smoked salmon.
A very straight forward and traditional Pain de Campagne, made with the aid of a poolish but using (as little as possible) instant dry yeast rather than a sour dough starter for added simplicity. The result is a golden loaf, very light and 'springy', with a good bubbly texture and superb taste. 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.
This delicious sour-dough bread is made with equal quantities of organic light rye, organic malted flour and organic white spelt flour. For a rustic effect dusted with organic semolina flour.
A warming spiced bread for the winter. Perfect for an alternative Christmas bread. Perfect with cooked meats or strong cheese. Use squash instead if pumpkins cannot be sourced. An easy bread to make, be careful when adding water as the pumpkin puree maybe moist.
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!
A real mix of flours. I found myself with various odds and sods of different flours left and decided to have a play! Quite a tasty result, a bit of something for everybody in these.
This recipe freezes well, and if sliced before freezing, can be toasted as needed.

Slow fermented wheat and rye sourdough bread
Delicious loaf with cacao in the mix that can be baked with chocolate, dried fruit or simply just nuts. The dough is not sweet however the additions can make it sweet or not at all.

Lovely, full of flavour wholemeal loaf, very tasty. I have never used this flour before but I wanted to try it on its own rather than mixing it with another flour.
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.
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.
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. A loaf never lasts long in our house. I have not found another bread, on the market, to match the flavour that the malthouse and mixed seeds add to this recipe.
This is a soft white gluten free loaf using eggs and yeast

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.
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.
Great recipe for a large 1.85 kg sourdough from sourdough expert Vanessa Kimbell, a cold overnight prove then cooked in a bread cloche this recipe gives fantastic results, especially when using Shipton Mill untreated organic No 4
This produced a lovely strong flavoured loaf that goes great with good butter or even lightly toasted which seems to bring out more flavour as the seeds toast.
Produce the most delicious sourdough bread every single time!
Soft white rolls with seed toppings. Perfect for a breakfast sausage sandwich or a lunchtime roll
An incredibly easy way to turn Shipton Mill's Einkorn flour into a dense, sweet, nutty loaf. No kneading and only one rise required.
French sourdough bread
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.
The inside of the loaf is wonderfully light in texture with a superb flavour, needless to say the first crust gets cut off as soon as it’s cool enough to do so:- gorgeous with butter and lovely & crunchy.
A nutty~tasting granary bread to make in a bread machine makes 750g loaf
Really tasty nutty cob. For those who like a full flavoured rustic bread. Fabulous just cut and buttered or great with any filling, hot or cold. Very good toasted too! Enjoy.
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 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.
Wholemeal Spelt loaft
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.
A tasty, easy, no knead bread and a method that easily converts to any loaf recipe.
Easy, healthy chapattis. These wholemeal breads perfectly complement a vegetarian curry dish.
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.
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.
A fabulously easy, no kneed loaf using dark rye flour and cracked rye pieces - based on a recipe by Trine Hahnemann. (NB: this loaf also uses white flour to lighten the texture slightly.)
Delicious nutritious loaf with real depth of flavour.
This makes a splendid general loaf with a difference. Plenty of taste. Great for sandwiches. Superb for beef-burgers or bacon sandwiches!
There is nothing better then a home made bread roll, I love adding vegetables such as parsnip or carrot , it gives a nice texture to the roll and it looks good.
A good combination of tea and bread. Make 8
I love the taste and crumb of this bread and my mother-in-law asks me for it so often I developed a recipe that can be whipped out in our Sage bread maker in no time. Lovely for sandwiches, as toast or simply on its own with a salad.

A tasty wholesome accompaniment to Şakşuka or any saucy dish. 70% wholemeal spelt flour dough cooked in a very hot oven.
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.
A very simple baguette recipe that gives delicious results every time. Can also be used for crispy rolls. I now use the same recipe for crusty white loaves. My granddaughter, who is intolerant of shop-bought wheat products demolishes large quantities of loaves and rolls with no adverse reaction.
Makes 2 crispy loafs with soft insides - nice texture . Made with no dairy products
"We've run out of bread"! I came up with this as a quick loaf recipe for whenever the call came ( usually at seven in the evening ). It's not intended to be high end bread but it still better than most supermarket white wheat based bread substitutes.

For breadmaker, makes 750g approx loaf
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.
Crusty French bread stirring memories of the authentic village boulangerie.
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.
Simple but very effective white bread recipe for loaves,French sticks and rolls
A lovely naturally leavened bread with a mix of bread flour, whole wheat and whole rye. Makes a great sandwich loaf. While this was inspired by Emmanuel Hadjiandreou's "Levain di Campagne" I have incorporated numerous changes of my own to produce a wholly different loaf.
... et voila!
You need a sourdough starter for this one and I make it the night before for the following day's evening meal- but it's worth the effort and rarely lasts until it's cold
Makes two cob loaves with a crackle glaze (sometimes called tiger bread). This is a 50:50 white and wholemeal standard bread recipe with a tangy crunch to the crust
75% hydration sourdough baguettes. They are airy but chewy and elastic. They develop a lot of flavour (non-sour) from the long cold levain fermentation. Still learning, but very pleased with the results.
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.
Crusty bloomer with soft white centre. Perfect for sandwiches
Pane di Altamura is a bread made with durum wheat from the Altamura region of Provincia di Bari in South East Italy. Made from Semola Rimacinata (re-milled semolina), and is naturally leavened, its characteristics are a thin dark crust with a lovely soft yellow crumb.
A wholesome nutty bread lovely toasted or with cheese.
A lovely light white sourdough loaf with a good crust made using a wheat leven so it has a very small proportion of wheat in it. I have been making this for myself for a few months now and I find that although I am intolerant of wheat I can eat this regularly.
Traditional danish rye
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.
Twisted and plaited crown shaped loaf flavoured with a smooth damson purée jam, made using an overnight sponge.
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.
White spelt rolls and platted bread with rye, oats, carrots and sunflower seeds.
A moist, nutty flavoured classic sourdough. Inspired by Richard Bertinet who, through his books has taken me onto a different level with bread making.
Fabulously tasty lunch time treat (or any time you like!). White bread rolled thin and topped with tomato purée, red onions , mushrooms and mozzarella cheese. A taste explosion. Great with salad leaves and tomatoes etc.
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.)
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.)
A light, moist, tasty loaf which has excellent keeping properties
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.
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.
I have used these quantities and the same method for a number of combinations and have found it to make great loaves.
A simple delicious bread that can be on the table in under an hour. Perfect to make last minute
A lovely malted multi seeded loaf really tasty,to make in your bread machine.
Delicious Buns made with Khorasan Flour, milk and honey.
Fluffy light spelt loaves, delicious with mayonnaise and dips
A moist malted Christmas bread full of spice and fruit. Increase amount of spices (Allspice - 1.5tsp & Cinnamon - 1tsp), if you prefer a stronger flavour. Use Spelt flour instead of Wholewheat. This loaf is approximately 65% hydration.
A tasty loaf with a pleasing texture using Italian White 00 Flour (118)
The Best Spelt Bread I've ever tasted - great texture and nice and light!
A really simple and easy way to make a deliciisou loaf, time after time!
The best seeded loaf I have ever tried. Easy to make, always rises well and tastes very good. The loaf contains finest organic white flour, sunflower, linseed, millet and poppy seeds. The good news is the master miller at Shipton Mill mills it all and puts it into a bag for us to buy. (Seeded White Organic Flour)
Simple soft white loaves, excellent for everyday use
First batch of rolls, eaten within half an hour. Look good and taste great.
Very flavored and tasty bread, made with flour, black tea water ferment and salt
I found this amazing recipe on line and use it when I need some soft dinner rolls in a hurry, I've tweaked it slightly to make it easier, it's measured in cups which I find so much better when you're in a hurry, I also used granary flour with the same results, its my go-to recipe, hope you like them ......
Made in muffin tins to puff up and make a "snail shell", these lovely spelt buns ooze with buttery toffee and sticky date pieces. Best served warm from the oven with a steaming cup of tea or coffee to chase away the winter shills. Leftovers (if there are any!) will reheat well and can be frozen and zapped in the microwave for emergencies. There is a picture but it doesn't always seem to view in Firefox!
Easy to remember recipe for a classic bread....crisp crust, slightly chewy centre...fabulous toasted and covered in butter !
Tasteful and healthy

Large loaf of White bead make with Spelt flour

Traditional french rye loaf with olives. Delicious with cheese
This is a simple recipe that gives you tasty bread in no time!
light, soft, flavorful bread with just enough wholemeal to entice even those who usually turn away from brown bread.
Soft White Sandwich Loaf
Yummy crusty wholemeal bread - makes two large loaves
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
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.
A delicious loaf that's simple to make using spelt and wheat flours, which my growing grand-daughter puts away at the rate of 2 loaves per week (there's no better recommendation)
Crushed green coriander seeds and chopped dried black olives add tasty flavours to this rye sourdough loaf, great with cream cheese
Very easy, always successful, white bread with good crumb and good taste
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.
Basic recipe for bread making machine.
This is a basic cold-proofed white bread baked in a tin and suitable for making sandwiches (prawn, smoked salmon, cream-stewed chantarelles, cheese) or e.g. serving with jam or honey. 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.
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
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.
Middle eastern flatbread, lovely and soft!
A sweet beery bread with a lovely crust.
A French sandwhich loaf
Using a mixture of White and Wholemeal Spelt, this yeasted bread is proved in a Banneton.
From mixing to baked in less than 2 hours, this fool-proof recipe can be used to make white or wholemeal bread and is my 'relaxing after a hard day's work' loaf!
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.
I have kept a wheat leaven on the go for nearly three years now. I use it to make all sorts of everyday bread. It gives a lovely texture and flavour but is not too tangy.
A friend emailed me from holiday saying that she had enjoyed this loaf where she was saying. I took up the challenge to devise a recipe and came up with a delicious loaf which can either be eaten as savoury or sweet, has a lovely aroma and toasts well too.
Great tasting and smelling bread, brilliant with bacon or marmalade.
Lovely crusty white bread
You have got to try this bread, seriously, perfect texture, country stile crust and taste to die for !
A hearty, sweet and delicious dark rye bread for savoury toppings or breakfast
This is a tasty and versatile wholemeal bread recipe that can be easily varied according to your tastes. Why not add gently fried onions, sliced olives, sun dried tomatoes, pesto or even chopped nuts and fruit for a delicious alternative to a standard loaf ?
Having tried a great number of the ciabatta recipes and methods available on various UK food and tv sites I was never quite happy with the results .. until now
Delicious savoury loaf lovely with feta cheese
After a lot of experimenting this two-stage recipe has emerged as a tried and tested recipe for our daily bread.
A mix of white and spelt flour with a generous sprinkle of fennel seeds
delicious crusty nutty taste
This is a tried and tested loaf, it never fails us. We also play around with the flours, sometimes we add less white and more Organic Light Malt house Flour.
These are great for traveling or picnics - moist and filling and no need for butter or other fillings!
Dark and rich. Overloaded with delicious seeds. Rye bread like you've never tried before. Some say it's the best bread they've ever tasted...
A sourdough loaf that is mainly white flour but with wholemeal additions to give flavour. These loaves have been devoured by recipients, even children as young as 3.
Rye bread made with Sourdough starter
Easy daily white spelt loaf for your bread maker with wonderful crust, without any added sugar or dairy, easy to cut thin for sandwiches, cut it thick for lovely toast.
Soft and Crusty, perfect for sandwiches
using dried porcini mushrooms and chopped Moroccan dry black olives and a mixture of Shipton Mill organic flours with a sourdough starter this loaf was a great success.
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.
A simple, but delicious, sandwich loaf
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!
A tasty sourdough that's great for toast, with soups and just buttered!
I made this when I had run out of every flour but Type '00', and needed to make a loaf. It turned out really well...
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. Anybody, who has ever baked a bread, can make this with excellent results.
A delicious bread with festive ingredients, which is as good with cheese or pate, or just dipped into a good quality extra virgin olive oil. The red cranberries give a festive colour.
A light open texture loaf with plenty of flavour
Delicious & quick loaf - wheat free, low GI, with omega 3. Great with nut butter - or anything on top!
A light aniseed taste, delicious as a sandwich with sardines and lettuce
This is the bread I make most often using Organic Malted brown flour with added seeds. Delicious fresh in sandwiches and good as toast too.
One step on from my no-knead sourdough, the extra time spent kneading improves the crumb.
Perfect breakfast bread, soft, buttery and with chocolate chips. What's not to like?
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).
Very healthy sourdough bread, with exceptional taste of black onion seeds. Not a fan of onion? Linseed, sunflower or pumpkin seeds can be used instead.
A simply gorgeous golden slightly nutty tasting 'Mighty White' sandwich loaf that takes about 15 minutes of your time!
A tasty simple loaf using Malted multigrain and baked to share an idea
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.
Delicious Rustic Homemade Bread
Easy sourdough prepared in mixer in 10 min
This recipe makes two loaves and involves very little hands-on time. It just uses great quality flour and slow fermentation to create an outstanding flavour and texture! More importantly it has just three ingredients and is free from any chemicals, additives and improvers typically found in mass produced supermarket bread! This recipe is for your life, not shelf life!!
Jewish tradition became delicious
This is a recipe developed over many years of experimentation in the quest for a bread replacement for my grain intolerant partner - no maize, no rice i.e. the standard replacements in commercially available wheat free bread alternatives - the latest modification with Chestnut Flour has been the most successful one.
A good loaf
This is more about the shape than the bread itself. A great one for Halloween, or just to make friends smile.
This sourdough bread includes 10% spelt flour and seeds, which give it a great flavour while keeping the crumb texture pretty light. Also excellent toasted, on the second or third day!
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.
These are simple to make. The egg and sugar give them a fluffy richness which goes particularly well with strong savoury flavours like burgers, sausages or cheese.
A lovely sourdough loaf with a hint of local (to me; Devon!) honey. Made with a blend of Shipton Mill white and wholemeal spelt flour.
This is a variation on Richard Bertinet's Bacon and Red onion bread but uses smoked cheese (thus suitable for some vegetarians) and is fortified with sourdough batter. It makes lovely toast and would be great with a hearty soup.
Sweet Brioche - You can make this a traditional plain brioche or as a chocolate chip plait.
Authentic Italian recipe
An exquisitely flavoured rye sourdough, which was a softer, lighter loaf than I expected.
These easy to make flat breads are brilliant for making neat, little sandwiches.
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.
Slightly sweet and amazing with blue cheese such as Roquefort, or a lovely strong English Cheddar, this special loaf is quite something to put on the table.
Full bodied, hearty bread with a great texture
Ideal for wheat intolerance! Delicious served warm or toasted lathered with butter.
If you have a sensitive gut you may find it difficult to find a loaf that suits you - the mixture of seeds and flours are rich in nutrients and flavour and texture to the bread, but are gluten free.
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.
Lovely soft moist wheaten bread, very moresome
This recipe can produce one of the nicest loaves you will taste in less time than it takes to go to your supermarket for a plastic bag of sliced mush (i.e. less than one hour start to finish)
A fragrant aromatic bread, perfect to go with cheeses, salads, soups...in fact almost everything.
A delicious crispy outside and soft bread to go with pasta, salad or cheese or anything! Made easy using the bread maker.
This is my everyday loaf because its delicious with a great texture and flavour but also a nice easy recipe.
To be eaten, thickly bread with butter, glass of cider, sitting by the haystack while the horses have their rest.
One of my favourite loaves with a subtle taste of rye, sour notes from the leaven and great texture from a long rise.
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.
This is positively the easiest and most tasty Spelt bread recipe I have come across. Turns out perfectly every time and has become an often requested favourite of my clients. It takes next to no prep time, keeps well and is fab for toasting too!
Simple, natural and healthy loaf of bread
Crusty Rolls with Sourdough starter for Flavour and Crunchy crust rather than a leaven
This recipe is for a super tastey, seedy, crusty soft bloomer - delicious with just butter, preferably consumed on the patio with a cup of coffee!
Sweet, delicate texture. Good for sandwitches
A wholsesome, healthy, delicious and satisfying bread for everyday use. So versatile and well structured - cut it thin and make sandwiches to serve with a salad, or start your day with it toasted, slathered in butter and marmalade; cut it chunky to eat with or without butter dunked into soup, or as a snack with a piece of your favourite cheese. This bread will grace the highest of tables or the simplest cheese-on-toast supper. Whenever I serve it, at the church supper, or to a tradesman in a bacon sandwich, it's always the same - "Mmm! Where did you get this bread?" Simple to make - flex the process around your day. Works out about 40p per loaf.
This wonderful Sourdough loaf is really crispy and has a lovely subtle nutty flavour.
Sourdough loaf with Crispy Crust that you can hear crackling when removed from the oven. I make this when I'll be out all day, or overnight.
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.
A moist and light multigrain bread ideal for sandwiches and toast.
I wanted to make a loaf that resembled a multi seeded loaf that we always used to buy from one of our local supermarkets.
Homemade cinnamon swirl bread with a gooey cinnamon sugar center - heaven !!!
Simple but secure success recipe tried hundreds of times.
This is a delicious open-crumb white loaf, made with a poolish and a wet dough, and includes wholemeal and rye for extra flavour
This was initially an experiment that turned out to be an unexpected success. Don't be afraid to test the water with this one, it really works!
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.
This is the recipe that got me to ditch the bread maker and make my bread by hand. Thanks Nigel Slater! No mystery or complicated processes, just a delicious, crusty white loaf that smelled and tasted glorious.

My tastiest loaf ever
This overnight sponge and dough process produces the very best Sandwich Loaf. Give it a try and add a comment to let us know if you agree!
A quick-ish recipe, nevertheless a good one. This will fit an “average” loaf tin, and can be doubled for two loaves or the resulting dough from this recipe could be divided in half for two small loaves.
This is of course an approximation and no historical accuracy is implied…but it is close to the original(s) and one of my favourite breads
Soft crust light tight crumb

Easy, fast (50 mins) and very tasty without getting your fingers in the dough.
