Sourdough Amongst Sisters

Michelle’s Sourdough Bread above.

I have been gone for the last ten days or so. My mother who, for those of you following this blog, was ill early in the Summer, had surgery and I went to California to be with her and help out. I brought along my sourdough baking equipment (Blentec mixer, bannetons, linen proofing cloths, premixes, timer,starters, etc) and besides helping out, we all had a great time baking up sourdough. My sister in law, Michelle, was the first one to take some sourdough lessons and her batch turned out fantastic. She had never baked bread at all before so she was a little nervous about the whole thing. Her husband, my brother, has gluten intolerance and she was hoping to be able to bake sourdough so he could eat some bread once in a while. I had baked up two batches before we started doing lessons and my brother ate the sourdough without any of his usual discomfort. He was really happy to be able to eat some bread without distress.

Here are some pictures of her bread:

Next my sister Mary baked up a batch. Unfortunately we burnt the first loaf because we forgot to reset the timer during baking and so overbaked the bread (you can blame the teacher!). However, the second loaf turned out awesome! Here she is with some pictures of her loaf:

The overbaked loaf wasn’t actually black but just overdone to a dark brownish color. It was eaten quickly with no complaints, so we did okay after all, however we didn’t want to take pictures of that one!

I had brought premixes which are what we used for all of the baking. The premixes were premeasured amounts of flours, Kosher salt and other ingredients that are easily added to the water and starter in the dough mixer. I have had really great results using these premixes and they are really easy to use, especially for beginning sourdough bakers. I am thinking of adding them to the sourdough store or some of the gift sets for the convenience they offer. We had just a few premixes left so Mary decided we should bake up some Sourdough Cinnamon rolls. We added some sugar and vanilla to the dough and they turned out delicious!
