  1. Malted Beer Bread

    Malted Beer Bread
    Beer. The word sends me off into a daydream. Proper craft beer made by someone that really cares about the unique flavour and, just like bread, wine or cheese (or coffee, chocolate or tea for that matter), each one has characteristics to respond to, whether a like or dislike. I used to make beer from grains at home a few...
  2. Malty Flapjacks for Snack Emergencies

    Malty Flapjacks for Snack Emergencies
    Brighter and longer days and we’re all getting outside again. Whether it’s to visit a nearby National Trust house and garden or to get the garden ready for sowing, it’s good to have a snack at the ready – in case of an urgent need for something to nibble. Seeded malted flapjacks, full of oats, and seeds and deliciously gooey...
  3. Naturally Sweet Hot Cross Buns

    Naturally Sweet Hot Cross Buns
    The run-up to Easter is a good time to bake those indulgent treats and this year, we’ve had to wait quite a while as Easter falls late (the first Sunday following the first full moon that follows the Spring equinox, for those that are interested). Anyway, the bakes marking Easter originate from many sources including Christian, Pagan and Jewish among...
  4. New in – Best British Chapatti Flour

    New in – Best British Chapatti Flour
    I’ve known Charles and David Howell of Offley Mill for some years and was most intrigued that a traditional watermill in Shropshire should specialise in chapatti flour rather than the more typical mix of flours. The Howell family has been milling since 1740 at one time owning several mills. Now at Offley Mill, in 1998 they decided to specialise in...
  5. Tomato Bread

    Tomato Bread
    British tomatoes are ripening in gardens and are in shops and markets everywhere. In the same way that making bread is not rushed, tomatoes that are allowed to ripen on the vine taste the best. Despite my kids turning their noses up at them (they eat more tomatoes than they realise…) I think that they are a highlight of summer...
  6. Herby Italian bagels

    Herby Italian bagels
    The herbs are growing in abundance in the garden so it’s an ideal time to use them in your everyday bread making. Whether oregano or marjoram, thyme or rosemary, throwing handful of herbs into your bread is a great way to make it delicious and full of the flavours of summer. I tried over the years to get my bagels...
  7. Every thing you need to bake your own perfect baguettes #GBBO style

    You can’t avoid the Great British Bake off just now, but then why would you want to? It’s great television and I really enjoy seeing enthusiastic amateurs having a go, occasionally making a complete mess of things while at other times creating something marvellous. I was intrigued by this week’s baguettes, not least because like many people I feel that...
  8. Apple and cinnamon rolls

    Apple and cinnamon rolls
    I look forward to the apple season each year, hoping that my twig-like trees might produce some fruit this year. Spring comes and goes with some blossom but by the time apple season starts in August, nothing much appears. I think the trees are still too young: patience seems to be the key, something that doesn’t come too easily to...
  9. LAMMAS FAYRE FLOUR

    LAMMAS FAYRE FLOUR
    If you want to know more about the Lammas Fayre flour grown by our friend John Letts then don’t miss this Sunday’s Countryfile on BBC1, 6pm. Find out about his research into heritage growing and a look around the farm including scything, milling and some of his thatching too. Should be very interesting. Lincolnshire Plum Bread If you haven’t already...
  10. Beetroot bread

    Beetroot bread
    September is a busy month for me at home with all the veg ripening at the same time. Last year I grew beetroot for the first time – dead easy and there is loads more that it can be used for than simply pickling it. This year they have done well too and they also seem to be available everywhere...
