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…

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….

The tart bite of cranberries combined with the crunch and earthiness from the walnuts has made this my go-to bread lately. I use this bread for toast, breakfast sandwiches, pressed lunch sandwiches and to soak up soups and stews. Schedule: I based this loaf off of my sourdough schedule. Since this is a 100% naturally…

Pepitas + Sunflower seeds + Oats Hybrid

It’s not often I bake the same loaf of bread twice, but this is one that I find myself coming back to. The seeds give a little crunch while the oats provide a silkiness. This is a great all purpose bread that I use for toast, breakfast sandwiches, cheesy garlic bread or simply dipped into…

Red Chile + Piñon Sourdough

I really like using local ingredients in my bread. One thing we don’t have any shortage of out here is red chile. I use red chile powder on just about everything but hadn’t used it in a bread yet. Adding some piñon (pine nuts) also gave it a local twist. The red chile powder gave…

Turmeric + Almond Sourdough

Turmeric is a great addition to just about any food but it really makes bread pop with vibrant yellow tones and subtle hints of an exotic flavor. The shaved almonds thrown in give an unexpected crunch and texture. Schedule: I based this loaf off of my sourdough schedule. Since this is a 100% naturally leavened…
