Porriage Bread



This delicious gluten free bread is a firm favourite with our guests (it’s loved by our staff too!) Once you’ve tried it we reckon you’ll be obsessed too. It’s so simple to bake that you may already have all the ingredients at home. Perfect for dipping in soups or having as toast, you’ll never want to buy shop-bought bread again. You just can’t beat the smell and taste of freshly baked bread!

Pour into tin. Bake for 40 minutes in oven, until it’s firm in the centre and shrunken from sides of the tin.

Make the syrup be boiling up sugar and lemon juice.

Prick the top of the cake when it comes out of the oven with a fork or cake tester. Pour over the syrup and leave to cool…
