Red Onion and Brie Focaccia Recipe

I’ve made focaccia a few times before, with red onion and cheddar being our favourite. It just works exceptionally well. Like fancy cheese on toast. Husband brought me a huge block of brie last week. I love brie and wanted ...

I'm a massive fan of crumpets. They come in such tiny packets though, why is this? 9 last us about 6 minutes. They’re so lovely, and warming. We used to eat crumpets in sixth form at school (not just crumpets ...

Sea Salt and Rosemary Focaccia

What’s the difference between a focaccia and a ciabatta? I wasn’t entirely sure what this was, but a bit of googling revealed a Paul Hollywood recipe for focaccia which is similar. And I’m willing to concede that he probably knows ...

Rosemary Bread

Rosemary is such a lovely flavour, and it smells incredible. I generally just make plain white bread, or white bread rolls, but thought I’d try something a little different. Adding rosemary is great, it’s quite a mild flavour, and makes ...

Bread Rolls

I love making bread, the kneading, feeling it change as I go, the satisfaction when you check on it after proving and its massive, the smell that lingers for days afterwards, but for some reason I’ve only ever made basic white ...
