Multiple Flour Standard Loaves

I was running low on bread (and time) so I whipped together these loaves using multiple flours and bakers yeast. The bread has an excellent crust and crumb and smelled amazing while baking. The sound of the bread cooling when I took it out of the oven lasted quite a while too! Schedule: I based…

Valencia Mill Standard Loaves

A friend of ours had some flour from a mill here in New Mexico and wanted me to try baking some bread with it. The mill is Valencia Flour Mill and I used some of their unbleached flour in these loaves. Schedule: I based this loaf off of my bakers yeast schedule. Ingredients: Dough I…

Smoked Gouda + Hatch Green Chile Bread

When the weather starts cooling down and Fall starts knocking on the door, it turns into Green Chile season here in New Mexico. Anywhere you go you get whiffs of green chile roasting. It’s one of my favorite times of year here. I bought about 5 pounds of freshly roasted Hatch green chile this year…

Oat + Walnut Standard Loaf

I wanted to make a loaf of bread that would be good for sandwiches, toast and garlic bread so I went with a recipe loaded with oats and walnuts. I love using walnuts in my loaves. They give a really good flavor and soften up nicely after baking. The oats also give a really nice…

Turmeric + Almond

I remember really liking the savory flavor of my last Turmeric + Almond sourdough loaf so I decided to make it again. Due to time constraints, rather than using my sourdough starter, I used bakers yeast. The color of this bread is ridiculously yellow. Schedule: I based this loaf off of my bakers yeast schedule….

Pretzel Buns

I’ve had an itch to make pretzels for a while but was waiting for the right opportunity. We were planning on grilling out some burgers for dinner and we didn’t have any buns on hand. The solution? Pretzel buns! These buns are stupid easy and taste amazing. I might try updating this recipe to use…

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…

Overnight Loaves w/ Whole Wheat

Some friends are doing a big pre-holiday dark beer sharing party and I wanted to bring some bread to help keep everyone sitting upright throughout the night. There wasn’t much notice about the party so I used the overnight baking schedule to whip up these flavorful loaves. Schedule: I based this loaf off of my…

Cinnamon + Sugar Star Rolls

I’ve been watching a lot of Great British Baking Show lately and got inspired to try some different types of baking. My wife had mentioned wanting some cinnamon rolls the other day so I decided to try whipping up one of those star shaped loaves. It was actually much easier than I thought! Since this…

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…
