Paprika + Pepperjack Sourdough

I’ve been devouring so much bread lately. Between garlic bread, soups and sandwiches, I can hardly keep bread more than a few days before I need to start planning my next bake. I like having some savory bread around since they’re awesome to dunk into soup. One that I really remembered loving in the past…

Pumpkin Shaped Pumpkin Sourdough

The Aspens are changing color and the nights are getting chilly which means Fall is here! In honor of Fall, I wanted to try my hand at making a pumpkin shaped loaf that had a hint of the flavors of a pumpkin pie. I ended up pretty impressed with my first try at this style…

Whole Wheat + Spent Grain Sourdough

My sourdough culture had been sitting, mostly neglected, at the back of my fridge for the last two months. I finally decided it had been long enough and pulled it out and fed it a few times earlier in the week and then baked this delicious double batch today. Whole wheat flour mixed with some…

Dark Rye + Spent Grain Sourdough

Monsoons finally hit here in Santa Fe which really helped cool the house down. I hadn’t baked bread recently because cranking the oven to nearly 500’F for almost 2 hours when it’s already 85’F in the kitchen just wasn’t appealing. I decided my first loaf back was going to be a hearty rye and spent…

5 Flour Sourdough

These ‘clear out the cabinet’ loaves came about after I was looking at all the random flours I had in my pantry. The five flours in this recipe are bread, whole wheat, rye, buckwheat and spent grain. These flours and flavors combined into a couple really nice loaves for sandwiches. Schedule Using the lazy sourdough…

Sourdough Pretzel Buns – Trial #1

After having a successful batch of pretzel buns with bakers yeast, I wanted to try making some with my sourdough culture. I made this recipe and method to fit my schedule and was fairly happy with this attempt, although there are definitely things to improve on. I scaled this recipe down to make 5 bratwurst…

Lazy Sourdough w/ Spent Grain

I was down to my last slice of Cheddar Cheese + Paprika bread and needed something else to have on hand. That loaf was awesome and savory, but not the best for sandwiches or toast. To make a better sandwich and toast loaf, I went back to the pantry and grabbed some spent grain flour…

Seeded Lazy Sourdough

This is another loaf using the “lazy” sourdough method. I baked this at the same time as my Cheddar and Paprika loaf. This recipe uses sunflower, poppy and sesame seeds but you can substitute just about any seeds you’d like. Schedule Using the lazy sourdough method is actually quite simple. The real key to this…

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…

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…
