Marbled Sourdough

I’ve wanted to make a marbled sourdough for a while but never got around to it. With a break in the hot weather, thanks to the annual monsoons, I was able to fire up the oven again and test out this method. I’m really happy with how the results came out! Schedule Using the lazy…

Easter Sourdough with Honey, Almonds and Sunflower Seeds

I baked these loaves to take to an Easter BBQ. I wanted something that was good on it’s own, or with some meat piled on top. The subtle honey aromas and added twist from the sunflower seeds and shaved almonds was perfect! As a bonus, one loaf got a rabbit stenciled on top. Schedule Using…

Blue Corn + Whole Wheat Sourdough

When I was pulling some ingredients out for my normal sourdough, I saw a package of blue cornmeal staring me in the face. I decided to change up my standard sourdough with whole wheat and throw some blue cornmeal in there too. Schedule Using the lazy sourdough method is actually quite simple. The real key…

Diastatic Malted Barley Flour Experiment #1 – Sourdough

I bought a bag of diastatic malted barley flour (DMBF) a few years ago when I heard it makes a great addition to pretzels, bagels and other types of bread. I’ve used it a few times but have never done a side-by-side comparison to a loaf using the diastatic malted barley flour vs a straight…

Aleppo Pepper + Mozzarella Sourdough

I finally got my hands on some Aleppo pepper and knew it needed to go into some bread. Aleppo pepper, in my opinion, is like a combination of sun dried tomatoes, red pepper flakes and paprika. It has a slight smokiness and a lot of earthiness without an overwhelming kick of heat. I paired the…

Blue Corn + Pepita Sourdough

I wanted to make a “New Mexico” sourdough but had recently made a loaf with green chile and another with red chile. What else is a typical New Mexican ingredient? Blue corn! Pepitas (or pumpkin seeds) are also used in a lot of Mexican and New Mexican cooking. Let’s combine these together into one delicious…

Habanero Pepperjack Cheese, Guajillo Pepper and Bacon Sourdough

That title is a mouthful! But that’s exactly what you’ll be doing when eating this bread. This bread is beyond delicious with the overwhelming amount of spicy and savory flavors. I had a block of extremely spicy habanero pepperjack cheese sitting in my fridge just begging to be put in a bread. I had also…

Bacon, Smoked Gouda & Hatch Green Chile Sourdough

I really loved the combination of smoked gouda and green chile in my last loaf and I wanted to expand on the savoriness by adding some chopped bacon. The results did not disappoint! The smokiness from the cheese combined with the roasted and earthy notes from the green chile combine extremely well with the bacon….

Bread Flour + Spent Grain Sourdough

I wanted to have some more bread on hand and hadn’t made a loaf with spent grain in a while. I threw this one together on a whim and it turned out tasting really nice. Schedule Using the lazy sourdough method is actually quite simple. The real key to this method is that you can…

Roasted Bell Pepper + Sun Dried Tomato Sourdough

Cold weather = soup weather, which means using up a ton of bread for some soup dunking. We already blew through all the Paprika + Pepperjack sourdough I had baked last week and it was time to make something else that leaned more toward the savory side. I looked through the fridge for inspiration and…
