  • Baking a Hollywood Malt Loaf

    Britain’s favourite master baker shares his recipe for a proper malt loaf. Exceptionally easy with a rich flavour, this loaf has a light texture and is more like a risen bread than the dense ready-made versions you find in supermarkets.

  • Baking at The Holt plus Paul Hollywood's Malt Loaf

    We love an exciting bread baking course here at BakeryBits, so much so that we have an entire Courses page on our website website dedicated to spreading the word about some of the best artisan baking schools across the UK.   This month is was BakeryBits team member and keen amateur baker Adrian’s turn to learn the secrets behind traditional bread baking the Richard Bertinet way during an inspiring class at The Holt in Honiton, Devon:   When I heard that we had a place on Angus’s bread class at The Holt in Honiton, I jumped at the chance...

  • Bread Baking at The Holt, Honiton

    The Holt Bakery - BagI’m a keen amateur baker, having ditched my bread machine a few years ago when I started working at BakeryBits -  it’s very hard to resist giving traditional bread baking a go, when, wherever you look you see artisan bread baking paraphernalia!

    My earlier attempts left quite a lot to be desired – unless you’re the sort that enjoys chewing on concrete, but now, most of the time, my bread turns out pretty well. However as I’ve basically taught myself at home, from reading books and asking Patrick every 5 minutes for advice, I knew there was a lot I was missing, many things I was probably doing wrong and also a heap of stuff that I was just guessing at without the technical knowledge to know how not to make the same mistakes over and over again.

  • Perfect Pandoro

    If making Pandoro sounds like a lot of effort to go to for Christmas .. you’d be entirely wrong. This straightforward recipe from food writer Vanessa Kimbell may not be the 3-day process that the original recipe comes from, but as she says in her house it took about three minutes to devour so she recommends making two at the same time! This is an easy recipe but can be just as complex in character as the complicated one .. if the right ingredients are used. For me the essence from BakeryBits just knocked up the flavour, and the...

  • Homemade Vanilla Extract

    Vanilla extract is a ubiquitous ingredient in cakes - it's an ingredient in virtually everyone's kitchen. Why not make your own? It is really, really easy to do and you can customise it too. The extract takes about 8 weeks to make - no heating or factory processing needed here. The first thing you need to get is some attractive bottles so that you have something on your shelf or to give away that look good. I used 250ml push-cap bottles which are available from your local cook shop (I got mine from Wendy's Cookshop in Honiton) as they...

  • Vanessa Kimbell - Caraway Soda Bread

    Vanessa Kimbell - Caraway Soda Bread

    There are days you just don't get a moment to bake. This recipe for soda bread is one of the fastest baking tricks on the planet. I challenge anyone to take more than five minutes flat to get it into the oven. Make no mistake: the speed of making it doesn't mean you're compromising on the taste. On the contrary, the pace of its creation should be counterbalanced by the speed to eat it – which really is best soon after baking. Continue reading
