weekend baker: top five homemade breads

  • weekend baker: top five homemade breads

    I just love the smell of freshly baked bread – it's always better made at home! From seriously simple no-knead rolls to cheesy flatbreads and loaves, a big pumpkin bread or rosemary-infused crunchy knots, these will get you baking!

  • no-knead bread rolls

    This is the no-fuss way to make bread. The secret behind the no-knead process is all about fermentation. Giving it time to rise, instead of kneading it, lets the yeast work wonders. The result? Lovely, airy-textured bread.

  • garlic, sage and blue cheese twisted loaf

    The soft blue cheese mixed in with the garlic and sage offers a punch of flavour you and the family will love. The perfect accompaniment to pizza on a night in.

  • blackcurrant, brussels sprout and cheese flatbread

    Bread doesn't need to be bland. Bring your loaf to life by experimenting with various colours and ingredients. It'll look just like a work art, you almost won't want to eat it!

  • pumpkin, speck and fennel no-knead loaf

    I absolutely adore the unique flavour the pumpkin and speck add to this rustic loaf. It takes me back to the countryside every time I make it.

  • rosemary and provolone seeded knots

    Making these knots takes only a flick of the wrist. Simple, quick and elegant it's like a present for your tastebuds!
