We make our own plum bread from scratch to a very old family recipe. Plum bread's spiritual home is Lincolnshire where it has been made for centuries and takes it's name from the pluming process, which is to dry fruit, such as currants and sultanas and doesn't actually have any plums in it.
We start by slow fermenting a sponge for 12 hours before we start baking, just like they used to in the rural bakehouses of the Victorian era. This process was originally done to make the gluten development of the dough easier and reduce the kneading time as it was all done by man power, it also gives the yeast a head start for a better rise, however a by-product of this process is a tastier bread that is more digestible.
Once the sponge has fermented we add all the other ingredients to this enriched dough including the dried fruit before shaping it up into traditional shaped loaves ready to bake.
It's fantastic on it's own simply buttered, served with your favourite cheeses or why not try making a bread and butter pudding with it! Don't just take our word though, we won a silver medal at the Lincolnshire Plumbread Completion.
