I use a bread machine to make the dough but you can do by hand too.
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.

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.
A gorgeous, delicious and easy recipe - sure to impress!
A hearty and zesty version of apple crumble, with lemon zest and some jumbo oats in the topping
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.
A recipe by Cees Holtkamp- one of The Netherland's most famous patissiers, from his book "De Banketbakker". I have left out the almondspijs (almonds meal mixed with sugar and egg) as it is not necessary but it is original to Holtkamp only and not all bakeries in Holland.

Delicious for breakfast or for tea these scones are light, fluffy and a tad sophisticated. Enjoy unreservedly either just warm from the oven or, if serving later, cut in half and lightly toasted under the grill. The cranberries add sweetness so can be served simply with unsalted butter or clotted cream.
Lovely soft loaf with the taste akin to a sour dough loaf.
This is my version of Fig and Pumpkin seed Sourdough bread. I thought it may be nice to try something with a bit of a twist and see what happened. I'm fairly new to sourdough baking, but I'm hooked and like to try different things. I hope you enjoy my recipe
A really moist tasty fruitcake, it is the ultimate feel good cake for my family. I'd like to add that it has has good keeping properties but it never lasts long enough for me to test!

A French apple cake with subtle hints of spiciness brought out by dark rum
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!

An indulgent and heavenly tasting traditional fruit bread from my homeland that, for me, evokes that sense of “hiraeth”.

I was given a friand tin for Christmas one year and I thought that the oval shape for little cakes was delightful. They will however taste just as good as small cakes cooked in a muffin tin. This recipe has been adapted as gluten free but are enjoyed by all, as they are a real treat.
Super spelt recipe from our friends at Seasoned Cookery School
Gorgeous, soft loaf cake with a warming hint of spice and the tang of apples - made in a panibois
These gluten free muffins are a favourite with children. The addition of lemon zest and poppy seeds makes them really special.
A good combination of tea and bread. Make 8
This simple, versatile cake looks stunning if made with young, pink new rhubarb that comes into the shops in January. The rhubarb can be substituted with blueberries , raspberries, plums or strawberries if you would like to vary things a bit.
Makes 6 large muffins: you can make these at any time of year using frozen raspberries, but using fruit in season make deliciously fruity muffins with a lovely citrus burst in the mouth, and the ground almonds add richness and moistness without making the result too heavy. These went down very well in the office at Shipton Mill!
This apple tart takes a tad longer to prepare due to cooking and pureeing the fruit prior to baking, but it produces a lovely smooth tart with a good flavour, and looks really good if you leave red skins on the sliced apples for decoration - only if you're using organic fruit though. The gluten-free pastry can be made in advance and kept cool in the fridge for up to 3 days.
This is a delightful, soft beautifully flavoured cake which is gluten free and easy to make. It doubles up nicely as a pudding served with fruit and ice-cream.
Lovely fruity desert encased by wonderful pastry.
For breadmaker, makes 750g approx loaf
This recipe really packs a fruity Rhubarb and hot ginger punch. Really good. Great as a breakfast muffin or as a treat. Don't worry about the sugar in the rhubarb, you won't use all the syrup (though what's leftover makes for a lovely ice-cream syrup or cordial with soda water).
Twisted and plaited crown shaped loaf flavoured with a smooth damson purée jam, made using an overnight sponge.

Moist, delicious banana bread recipe - that looks beautiful too!
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!
This is one of the best lemon cakes I have ever baked. The cake is very fragrant (thanks to a candy-like liqueur limoncello), moist and finished with smooth lemon glaze. The best with tea or milky cappuccino. Enjoy! :)
This loaf cake is soft and fluffy, and very moist on account of the lemon drizzle, stained a deep pink from the lavender.
A deliciously nutty and treacly spelt loaf for all times of the day.
This recipe makes a wonderful moist cake but due to the type of ingredients it does require a food processor! I regularly include this healthy cake in my chidren's lunch boxes. It keeps for a week in the fridge and any dried out crumbs may be served with icecream or part of a custard style desert, so there's no waste!
These are great for traveling or picnics - moist and filling and no need for butter or other fillings!
A delicious, soft bread similar to a brioche - great for an afternoon tea in the dark and cold season (not just on Halloween).
The Queen of Banana Bread. This quick and easy recipe is a delicious all purpose treat, which can be made and served within the hour. The hardest part of the process is clearing up afterwards so I have given the quantities for making two loaves. Any excess can be sliced and frozen.
A raspberry flavoured cake with raspberry buttercream, chocolate ganache glaze, topped with vanilla buttercream and raspberries. Yum!
An exquisitely flavoured rye sourdough, which was a softer, lighter loaf than I expected.

Full bodied, hearty bread with a great texture
Very quick to prepare and using chestnut four, this wheat-free pancake is delicious served hot for breakfast.
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.
Great for using up spotty bananas, works with both plain and wholemeal flour, kids love em!

This is a movable feast. The basic idea is a rich yet light chocolate tart, in a crisp pastry shell with a fruity bit in the middle. For the Christmas theme I suggest using a cranberry mincemeat.
A light fruity Christmas jam packed with berries and fruits with a hint of jasmine flower and rose fragrant.
