Baking Recipes and Advice

  1. Make a Gift of a Panforte

    Make a Gift of a Panforte
    Receiving something home-made is always a bit special, whether something made with a high level of skill and competence or whether a little bit wonky – it is of course the willingness to spend time on someone else that is the delight in these busy times. I think that something home-baked and not at all wonky to eat at Christmas...
  2. Sweet Ricotta and Cream Cheese Danish

    It looks like the artisan bread world is expanding strongly at the moment, judging by the number of jobs being submitted to our jobs board. Hopefully this is a reflection of a general awakening to the experience of a loaf baked by highly skilled craft bakers, and long may it last. The response to our new spiral mixers that we...
  3. Who are our bakers?

    Who are our bakers?
    I’m conscious that week after week I write about something I find interesting, but I don’t know enough about you! We have such a broad range of customers from keen amateurs to Michelin starred restaurants that it seems high time we ask about you and your interests. Hopefully this will let us better focus what we do to suit you...
  4. Our Favourite Norwegian Baker

    Our Favourite Norwegian Baker
    I have a new favourite sourdough book. I spent Saturday with an amazing group of bakers, food writers and Martin Fjeld, half of the Norwegian baking duo Ille Brød and authors of their book “Sourdough” (originally Surdeig). The baking duo describe themselves as “two guys baking organic sourdough bread at home and in a micro bakery”. I am not sure...
  5. Raise Your Spirits With a Tea Loaf

    Raise Your Spirits With a Tea Loaf
    I’m tired of winter now. More gales today flapping roof panels of our warehouse making quite a racket, although I did notice, one afternoon this week while chatting to a delivery driver, the hint of warmth from a fleeting burst of milky sunshine. Spring is coming – at least, I hope so. I can’t wait to see the earth coming...
  6. Spiral Mixers for the Discerning Baker

    Spiral Mixers for the Discerning Baker
    Spiral Mixers for the Discerning Baker A real joy in this business is engaging with a really wide variety of customers looking for anything from a bag of coarse rye flour for fishing (I have no idea) to an expanding bakery looking for 1000 fancy proving baskets. We’re always keeping one ear listening for great ideas for new products and...
  7. Beauty and Utility in our Handmade Lame

    Beauty and Utility in our Handmade Lame
    Having baked as an amateur for over 20 years, I am still surprised at how much there is still to learn and how many new ingredients and pieces of equipment are out there waiting for us to discover them. We’ve a healthy list of things to research and evaluate for adding to our range over the coming year – I...
  8. A SLICE OF THINGS TO COME in 2017

    A SLICE OF THINGS TO COME in 2017
    Happy New Year to all our lovely BakeryBits customers. 2016 was a pretty tumultuous year for most and for us it was no exception. Moving to a new warehouse was pretty hectic but now that we are nicely settled the benefits are clear with plenty of space for more sensible quantities of stock and the Dispatch team is very much...

  10. Dan Lepard shares his sourdough secrets

Dan taught the group of keen bread bakers some original and delicious sourdough recipes including chocolate sourdough cakes, fruit focaccias and fruity sourdough loaves. Sweet...
