Christmas products : So, what are we baking ?

by Andy Wallis

Cranberry, Oat and Apple Sourdough loaves

As yuletide approaches, so do our Christmas products. Here at the loaf, we will be bringing  you a very wide range of festive treats


fig bread on bread shelves

Fig bread (Pictured)

Made using our very popular light rye dough, and delicious with cheese.

Apricot and walnut sourdough

With a heartier crust than the fig bread, this also goes well with cheese but is a great partner for a hearty winter soup.

Marzipan Stollen

Marzipan stolen

Made small and medium for customer sale, or can be made large for use in cafés to slice and toast (oh how the marzipan caramelises in the toaster!)

Christmas Puddings

Christmas puddings using Andrew’s family recipe are now available from the shop and we will be selling them at the markets we attend (check out our website for where we are when!). These cakes are deliciously dark and gently spiced with fresh apple and carrot in the recipe, giving them a moistness that adds to their flavour, the perfect way to round of a Christmas meal and save yourself a job whist you’re at it. they are available in three sizes; small (1-2 people), medium (3-4 people) and large (6-8 people)

Also from a family recipe, our Mince Pies are now available daily. We made our own mincemeat a couple of months ago using English Bramley apples and not-so-English Brandy and pride ourselves in our all-butter pastry
