  1. Ale, Butter & Mustard Pie Gravy

    Ale, Butter & Mustard Pie Gravy A wheat flour-based sauce has been show in trials to give a more pleasing flavour – what foodtech people call mouth-feel – for savoury food, compared to sauces thickened with cornflour or other starches that are better suited to sweet dished. So that old-fashioned pan gravy my mother would make for Sunday roasts was the way to go, and still my favourite. By browning the butter first, ... Read more...

  3. Cream sauce for pies and pastries

    Cream sauce for pies and pastries Very useful for pies, savoury Danish, on any pastry or dough that needs a layer of a creamy filling that won’t add too much fat or oil.

  4. Dark Mocha Chocolate Cake with Fudge Frosting

    Dark Mocha Chocolate Cake with Fudge Frosting A very simple, utterly delicious rich mocha chocolate cake with a great coffee flavour thanks to Brazier's Altitude House Blend coffee, and an intense chocolate flavour. I've baked this in our Chicago Metallic Unglazed Professional Sponge Cake Tin (20cm/8-inch diameter), especially good as it's 5cm (2 inches) deep so it can bake a generous thick laker of cake easily.Method Line the base of a deep...

  5. Saffron & Date Hot Cross Buns

    Saffron & Date Hot Cross Buns I’m always looking for ways to create bakes that are big on flavour and a joy to eat but are a little healthier at the same time. Hot Cross Buns traditionally have added sugar but as dried fruit are intensely sweet, so you don’t need any extra. The dates in particular give a warm rich sugar hit. I’ve lived in various African countries and finding butter was often an issue. I ... Read more...
  6. Rum Baba

    Rum Baba A baba is a small bread-like dessert "cake" that is soaked in a lightly flavoured sugar syrup, and served cold or at room temperature with big spoonful of slightly sweetened cream and a slosh of rum that gives it its name. As desserts go it’s very simple and unfussy, yet for people like myself who love it we class it as one of the classics of French patisserie. Under the hood this is based ... Read more...

  8. 100% Rye Sourdough

    100% Rye Sourdough For some bakers this loaf is considered the King of Sourdough as it has a reputation for both an amazing flavour (which it does) and a complexity in getting it right. It has an intense sourdough tang to it, perfect when paired with strong-flavoured foods like pickled herrings or blue cheese. Though my favourite way of eating it is toasted and buttered with Seville marmalade. Using what’s ... Read more...

  10. West Country Rarebit

    West Country Rarebit Slightly more complex than grilled cheese on toast but in its own way equally delicious. There used to be many different sorts of rarebits, you sometimes see them spelled as "rabbits" – an English rarebit would be made with good red wine – and they somewhat grew out of the traditions of 19th century gentleman’s clubs. Wales was renowned back then for toasted cheese on toast ... Read more...
