Multiple Flour Sourdough

I ran out of bread a little while ago and needed to restock my freezer with some. I always seem to go back to the basics when I want some hearty and tasty bread on hand. These sourdough loaves have dark rye and whole wheat flour in addition to bread flour fit the bill perfectly….

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…

Overnight Loaves w/ Garlic and Rosemary

Garlic and rosemary is a great combination and one I definitely need to use more often. You’d typically see these ingredients in a focaccia or in an olive oil dip for bread, but putting them in the bread themselves turns an ordinary loaf into an aromatic and savory masterpiece. Schedule: I based this loaf off…

Spent Grain + Whole Wheat Standard Loaf

My sourdough culture has been acting up lately (really low gluten development), so I wanted to go back to basics with a standard bakers yeast recipe. If you’ve read my previous posts, you’ve probably seen how I really like using spent grain flour in my loaves to help give it an extra boost of whole…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
