Recipe: Belgian "Liege" Waffles

Recipe: Belgian "Liege" Waffles
Like many countries in Europe, Belgium has a tradition for waffles with two very popular varieties widely eaten today: the "Brussels" waffle and the "Liege" waffle. The Brussels waffle, has been adopted by the USA, where it has become known as the "Belgian" waffle. In the USA, the recipe has evolved to make a lighter and sweeter waffle, risen by egg rather than yeast. On the other hand, the Liege ... Read more

What makes bread rise, and how to get the best rise ever

What makes bread rise, and how to get the best rise ever
If you put wheat flour, water (and some salt, if you like) in a bowl, mix it well, roll pieces of it thin and cook it on a hot metal bakestone you’ll get one of the earliest forms of bread, what’s known as unleavened flatbread. Easy to make, utterly delicious: today there are many people who make and enjoy this bread pretty much the way it was made hundreds of years ago. Perhaps the flour ... Read more

Easter Vegan Saffron & Date Hot Cross Buns

Easter Vegan Saffron & Date Hot Cross Buns
I’m always looking for ways to create Easter bakes that are big on flavour and a joy to eat but are a little healthier at the same time.

There are two ways you can use barley flour in a recipe like ... Read more

Golden carrot burger buns

Golden carrot burger buns
Fresh carrot juice gives these buns a rich golden colour, extra flavour, and sweetness, and helps to keep them soft for several days. You could use other vegetable juices here, like tomato, beetroot, or a mixture, and a home-juicing machine makes this very easy. Otherwise, you can often buy fresh vegetable juices at the supermarket. But the heart of these delicious buns is the flours used, and a ... Read more

Dark Malt Focaccia

Dark Malt Focaccia
With its caramel coloured crumb and an open bubbly texture, this malted focaccia is relatively easy to make by hand but super-easy with a machine. Here I mixed this in the Ankarsrum Assistent with the dough hook attachment and scraper, but you can mix it by hand in a Swedish stainless steel mixing bowl. The flour used, Mulino Marino's excellent Organic Type "0" Manitoba Flour gave it an ... Read more
