Baking Recipes and Advice

  1. Caramel, Banana and Walnut Loaf Tinned Loaf

    Caramel, Banana and Walnut Loaf Tinned Loaf
    What a strange time we are going through politically, with plenty of madness in every direction it seems to me. It makes me want to take shelter with some comfort food. Something with both nuts and bananas (nice straight ones if you believe the Euromyth!) seems apt. I asked Vanessa to come up with something along this theme, something we...
  2. Crunch from the Cotswolds

    Crunch from the Cotswolds

  3. Chewy Date and Buttermilk Pretzels

    Chewy Date and Buttermilk Pretzels

  4. Spelt, fennel and butter rolls

    Spelt, fennel and butter rolls
    We often get calls from customers asking how to use particular products and we enjoy talking to our bakers as hearing about their successes and occasional failures is always interesting. I had a call from a keen baker recently asking about using glycerine in bread. You may remember that we used glycerine recently in our sweet cardamom buns but is...
  5. Vanilla Toffee Buns

    Vanilla Toffee Buns
    Buns are almost universally popular and have been for centuries. Variations are numerous with regional varieties taking on their town’s name, Bath and Chelsea being obvious examples and add some intrigue as to the nature of the bun…Others take their name from their ingredients, currant buns for example don’t leave much to ponder. Good for a snack, especially if out...

  10. Pandoro Recipe, a Cake for Christmas

    We challenged Vanessa Kimbell to come up with a Pandoro recipe in time for Christmas that would be achievable and reliable - if a little more challenging than our usual recipes. She has come up trumps with a delightfully light cake that does use your sourdough starter for that authentic, complex flavour.
