Buried Bread – A Sourdough Experiment

Buried Sourdough Bread

Buried Sourdough Bread

Many years ago, when I was working with and experimenting with Desem, I would bury the Desem dough ball in the bag of flour and then later dig it out and see that it had cracked open with the fermentation going on inside.

Hi everyone! We are having a challenge in our group on Facebook called, “Perfect Sourdough.” The challenge is to score a loaf to look like a sunflower, some 3d scoring fun.

Sourdough Challah Bread

My sixth baking course called, “Learn to Bake Magnificent Challah,” has launched!

In this new course I cover three types of Challah, a commercially yeasted dessert Challah, a hybrid Challah using both commercial yeast and sourdough and a sourdough only Challah.

I’ve been having fun with some higher hydration loaves. This particular formula is easy because it uses up a lot of your sourdough starter and the high inoculation rate of starter in the dough is like a built in autolyse.

Playing Around with Teff Flour for Teff Bread

teff_600

I was able to pick up some Teff flour on discount at the store. The flour is still fresh, so I think the store just wanted to discontinue it. Which means I’ll have to find it elsewhere when I need to purchase some more.

According to the internet, Teff is a seed not a grain and if that leaves you scratching your head, read here: Difference between Seeds and Grains. That is not the only article, just Google it for more information, it is quite fascinating actually.
