Classic Christmas Stollen

Classic Christmas Stollen

I’d never had Stollen until a few years ago. I spent my childhood absolutely convinced that I didn’t like marzipan, what a fool I was! So, Classic Christmas Stollen isn’t something that had ever appealed to me. I don’t hugely like Christmas food either. It’s […]

Red Onion Jam and Cheddar Focaccia

Red Onion Jam and Cheddar Focaccia

I haven’t made any fancy bread for ages. I’ve been making all my own burger rolls for burger Thursday, but haven’t made anything less basic for a while. So, I had a look through the fridge for some inspiration and found what’s left of our […]

Common Bread Making Problems and How to Fix Them

Common Bread Making Problems and How to Fix Them

Bread making problems crop up all the time. Once you’ve been baking for a while, you can often tell if a dough is right by how it feels and how it responds to your touch. But, in the beginning, when things don’t work out it […]

Red Onion and Brie Focaccia Recipe

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 to try something different with […]

Easy Homemade Crumpets

Easy Homemade Crumpets

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 I might add…there were also […]

Easy Homemade Pitta Breads

Easy Homemade Pitta Breads

I love bread. I’d happily eat it with every meal. However, I do get a bit bored of both making, and eating the same white loaf, all the time. Pitta breads make a nice change. I like them just in the normal sandwich bread replacement […]

Homemade Garlic Naan Breads

Homemade Garlic Naan Breads

Naan bread is brilliant, isn’t it? We should eat them more. I basically only made these because I had some yoghurt left from the flatbreads. They were wonderful (especially as a midnight snack dipped in mayo!) and I’m never ever buying supermarket naan bread again. […]

Flatbread Recipe

Flatbread Recipe

Making your own flatbread is really easy,  cheap and they taste fantastic. I use mine with chicken and Tzatziki for yummy Greek wraps. But you could put pretty much anything in them, a great alternative to bread, which can get quite boring as much as […]

Cheddar, Onion and Rosemary Focaccia

Cheddar, Onion and Rosemary Focaccia

Up until 3 weeks ago, I’d only ever made plain white bread. Then something happened and I went slightly bread crazy! I’m being slightly experimental and just trying things. So, this might not be quite right, it’s quite a bit different from the only other […]

Sea Salt and Rosemary Focaccia

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 more about bread than I […]
