Home Made Breads and Pastries!

Since the Festival last year, we are pleased to announce the launch of 2 exciting new businesses here in Steeple Morden; The Bakery @ Number 55 and Apricot and Fig. We have made arrangements with both, to allow visitors to the Bluegrass Festival to pre-order (by Sunday 12th June please) for collection and payment (cash only please) from the reception area at the Festival.

The Bakery @ Number 55

Visit the website


Offering a mouth-watering range of artisan home baked breads, made freshly to order, customers have been spotted sporting huge grins when they collect their breads. Orders should be placed on line from the website, but you must remember to indicate Bluegrass Festival as all pre-orders will be delivered to Steeple Morden Village hall

Five seed sourdough with a blend of organic flours.  £3.10 per loaf, cooked weight approx 550g

A lovely light textured sourdough with added crunch, this is a delicious blend of six flours and five seeds.  Made with predominantly white flour, the 'something special' comes from the added spelt, rye, malted barley, light malthouse and wholemeal flours.  Ingredients (Allergens are highlighted) Strong wholemeal, spelt, light malthouse, and white flours (wheat), rye flour, malted barley flour, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, millet seeds, linseed and poppy seeds, salt, water.

Irish wheaten soda £3.75 (2lb loaf tin)

In Ireland, north and south, soda bread is the standard loaf. It's often made in the home, and everyone has their own recipe.  My family is no different -and my 85 year old father still bakes this recipe a couple of times a week! It is packed full of goodness, and has a touch of sweetness,  Wheaten bread lasts well, and makes lovely toast but can sometimes be too crumbly for sandwiches!  However, it is great for open sandwiches, especially with smoked salmon.  Ingredients (Allergens are highlighted) wholemeal self raising flour (wheat), Porridge oats, buttermilk, demerara sugar, salt and bicarbonate of soda.

Cheese and mustard loaf £3 (1lb loaf tin)

This cheddar loaf is absolutely luscious with a hint of mustard. It makes stunning sandwiches, and is heavenly toasted (for example with poached eggs, grilled tomatoes). That is of course if it lasts beyond your front door. Ingredients (Allergens are highlighted) cheddar cheese (milk), white bread flour (wheat), milk, Dijon mustard (mustard and sulphites), yeast, sea salt  

NEW Chocolate or almond croissants £1.40 each or 4 for £5

Lovely and buttery with a generous filling these will make a lovely Saturday morning treat. I hope you enjoy them as much as we have!  Ingredients (allergens are highlighted), strong white bread flour (wheat), normandy butter (milk), eggs, salt, yeast, caster sugar. Chocolate croissants also contain rich milk chocolate (no additional allergens).  Almond croissants also contain ground and flaked almonds (nuts),
