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…

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….

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…

Blue Corn Sourdough

I love the color, crunch and flavor that adding blue cornmeal gives to bread. The longer fermentation and proofing that comes along with sourdough also helps to soften the blue corn a little more than a quick bakers yeast loaf does. Schedule: I based this loaf off of my sourdough schedule. Since this is a…

Spent Grain Sourdough

It’s been a while since I made a sourdough loaf using my spent grain flour. I remembered how well the flavors played together and wanted to give it a shot with my new sourdough culture instead of the old whole wheat starter I had used with the last loaf. Schedule: I based this loaf off…

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…
