I created this blog when my second book, The Sourdough Whisperer was being released to share the set of bonus recipes I created to support it. Now that my new, and third, book, has been published, I have been posting lots of new information and some sneak peeks on my main website.
I’d hate anyone to miss out, so please do pop over and find the full recipe for my new stuffed pizza rolls and subscribe to follow that blog to receive all of my news and recipes…
If you would like to learn more about proving dough, I recently made a video showing well, under and over proved that you can now watch as part of the Pastry Arts Baking Summit 2022 – discover how the doughs look, behave, handle and bake, and why. Click here to watch.
If you’ve got mincemeat to use up, this one is for you!
Welcome to my third bonus recipe….I know I’m repeating myself, but I really do love this recipe! I was so pleased with it when I first created it, it turned out even better than I hoped. Like so many of my recipes, this was the result of using up leftovers and wondering what it would create. So, I give you, my ‘Christmas Carrot and Buttermilk Loaf’.
In the dough I used up some leftover mincemeat from making mince pies at Christmas, hence the name, and added in some leftover grated carrots with the idea that it might produce a carrot cake outcome, and as I spotted half a pot of buttermilk in my fridge that also needed using up, that got thrown into the dough too! And the outcome is a light, flavoursome loaf, with a slight sweetness, studded with dried fruits from the mincemeat, and all creating a wonderful texture. If you don’t have mincemeat I’ve provided alternative options.
I really hope you like it, and I hope it makes you feel festive. Happy baking all!
It seems that my cheese and chilli/chile flake loaf has been a success! Check out all of these bakes, and these are only the ones I could capture…there was even more in amongst Instagram stories… thank you all!
