Ravenhill Sourdough Bread Recipe

B&B hosts, Roger and Olive of Ravenhill HouseRavenhill House in Belfast, Co Antrim   

At Ravenhill House Bed and Breakfast, we aim to use the best Irish produce and ingredients available when making our home-made bread. Bread making is a daily task in our B&B and we start with raw materials of organic wheat and rye grain from Dunany Farm in County Louth. Using our trusty German grain mill, we grind a coarse wholemeal wheat flour for making wheaten bread and a finer rye flour which gives a delicious flavour to our sourdough loaf. Grinding the flour just before it is used, ensures that none of its nutritional goodness is lost before the loaf is made. Our extensive breakfast menu makes good use of our homemade loaves which we hope that you will enjoy when you visit Ravenhill House. #TastetheIsland B&B food experiences.

Danabel Porridge Bread Recipe

I started making my Porridge Bread about a year ago. It was so popular with guests that I carried on making it. Now, I make it everyday and leave it on the breakfast table for my guests to help themselves. I am always complimented on how tasty it is. The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it is so easy to prepare, yet so delicious!
