NEW COURSE LAUNCH! Learn to Bake Magnificent Challah!

Sourdough Challah Bread

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. The course took me many months of testing with  help from a group of formula testers (photos from the test bakers are included in the course).

For Launch Week I will have the course available at half off. Here is a discount coupon link: Learn to Bake Magnificent Challah

Sourdough Baking Techniques 1 – The Dough

thedough

Here are a collection of  Sourdough Baking Technique videos about “The Dough,”  all in one place. I thought it would be a good idea to have a list of videos and resources for baking techniques in one post so that you can bookmark it or share it with a new baker. However, one post would be too long, so I am breaking it up into three posts. This post will deal with techniques for The Dough. I will do a second post for Baking Equipment Ideas and a third post for Assorted Baking Techniques.Continue reading

Sour Seed Dough 40/100 and 60/100

We have been experimenting back and forth with it to obtain a “sour” bread. It is obviously not the way they(Boudin) bake their sourdough now.  Home baked sourdough’s are still the best.
