Cheddar Cheese and Paprika Sourdough

A friend clued me into a new sourdough method that promised to be pretty low effort but still resulted with great bread. I decided to give the method a try with a loaf using some sharp cheddar cheese and paprika. Schedule Using the lazy sourdough method is actually quite simple. The real key to this…

75% Whole Wheat w/ Sunflower & Pepitas

I’ve been trying some new techniques and have ended up with a few major fails. I’ll start documenting those for the blog but for now I’m sticking with successes. I was looking for a hardy and healthy loaf so I went with a 75% whole wheat bread that I added some sunflower seeds and pepitas…

6 Grain Sourdough

I really enjoy using several different flours and grains in a bread to really give it some depth and complexity. With this bread I used six different grains and flours I had in my pantry to come up with a really tasty sourdough. Schedule: I based this loaf off of my sourdough schedule. Since this…

Overnight Loaves w/ Whole Wheat

Green Chile Cheese Bread

The second loaf in my holiday baking spree is a staple in New Mexico… Green Chile Cheese bread! I’m still working on perfecting this recipe and I think I’m getting really close. I think the key to good coverage of cheese and chile on the top of the bread is to use sliced cheese instead…

Garlic + Rosemary Bread

The third loaf in my holiday baking spree was inspired by focaccia with some garlic chunks and rosemary added to this one. The smell was off the charts good. I probably could have used a little bit more garlic and rosemary but it was a good first try. Schedule: I based this loaf off of…

Rye Flour Sourdough

With the holidays around the corner it means lots of parties to attend! With a lot of parties to attend, that means a bunch of excuses to bake bread! To kick off this bread baking spree I decided to go with a simple rye sourdough. Schedule: I based this loaf off of my sourdough schedule….

Spelt Flour Sourdough

I felt like I had been neglecting my sourdough starter in the back of the fridge so I decided to feed it over a few days and then use it for some bread. I had been missing that good sour twang in my recent loaves and this one gave me what the other loaves had…
