I’m super excited to bring you this new online baking course,”Learn to Bake Panettone.” Beesham Soogrim, whom many of you know from Perfect Sourdough on Facebook, is teaching this course and I collaborated with him by filming, editing and being your guide.
We both attended the Quest for Sourdough workshop in Belgium last summer and we decided I would film Beesham as he baked Panettone and then make an online course. Beesham is a master baker with 30 years experience in baking but he doesn’t know how to film/edit and do course creation. So we decided to collaborate.Continue reading
These flatbreads are SOOOOO good! You can get creative and put anything you want on top. You can slice them into wedges, like a pizza or into rectangles, like bread sticks. Any way you slice them, you will enjoy their savory goodness. I used 50% freshly ground whole wheat using my Mockmill 200. It may not look like I used 50% hard white whole wheat in the formula, but since 125 grams of the sourdough starter was white bread flour, you need to add that to the total amount of flour.

I just returned from a week of traveling by plane and then by car across the Arizona Desert (twice) in 118F weather! This instructor felt BAKED!
I was able to visit with my (87 years young) dad on the coast of California (80F! Yay!) and some of my children and grandchildren.
Now I am ready to get back to fun (not work!) and start baking again. I have some sourdough starter going for bread, pizza and brownies! More of my children and grandchildren will be arriving today and we will be picking blueberries tomorrow. Thank goodness coastal Washington doesn’t reach 118F!
For the rest of the month you can have more fun baking too! My online sourdough baking courses will be discounted until August 1st. All of the courses are discounted to $14.99 except the 101 course which is discounted to $9.99.
Here are links to the courses, check out the links and see what each course includes and start having fun baking! Continue reading
Hello everyone! I’ve been working for months on a new online baking course and it’s finally finished! It’s called “Sourdough Bread Baking Exploration.” In this course I explore different aspects of sourdough baking. The course covers:Continue reading
My favorite loaf is the very sour San Francisco Sourdough style bread. It’s why I started baking sourdough almost 14 years ago. It’s why I started a blog, wrote books and also built a company around sourdough. I was able in many ways to get a nice crust, chewy crumb and tangy loaf over the years but could not find a method that was actually controllable and gave that real elusive tangy flavor on a consistent basis.Continue reading
I’ve been experimenting with freezing dough. My first experiment was with a two loaf batch of seeded dough. After bulk ferment, I put the dough into the fridge to cool it down before shaping it. Chilling the dough minimizes excessive rising before it freezes. After refrigerating the dough for two hours, I shaped the loaves (about 700 grams each) and put them (in bannetons) into the freezer (covered with a plastic bag).Continue reading
I’m giving a Sourdough Brownie Workshop at the end of the month, so I’ve been tweaking the formula to get it perfect, especially for those who only have semi-sweet chocolate chips available to them. The first formula is here (use this formula if you are making brownies with the 100% baking chocolate): Easy Chocolate Brownies.
Here is the revised formula:Continue reading
These sourdough brownies are quick, easy and taste super! They use only fermented sourdough starter so the flour in them is completely fermented. When you need a quick dessert and brownies sounds just right, and when do they ever sound wrong? then whip these up and serve them warm with some whipped cream, your favorite icing or plain, they’re that good! The sourdough starter is best to use when the gluten has broken down a bit like after 10 -12 hours after feeding at room temperature. Continue reading
Hello Everyone! I’ve launched a new online baking course called, “Extreme Fermentation – Bake Modified Gluten Sourdough Bread.” The method was inspired by Yohan Ferrant’s method of low inoculation, extreme fermentation at high hydration.
For the course, I used a moderate high hydration to make the dough easier to handle. The course covers the low inoculation method of extreme fermentation with very little handling of the dough. I also show how to modify the dough so you can make “sour” sourdough or mild sourdough using the same dough.Continue reading
Hello my baking friends, this is the second week as I feature each one of my sourdough baking courses with a special discount coupon. This week I am featuring my second course, “Bake Artisan Sourdough Bread Like a Professional.” This was actually the first course I published, I later went back and made an introductory course for beginners called “Sourdough Bread Baking 101,” but the professional course was my first one and it is still the most popular one. As time went by and I published more courses, eight in all, I became better at video taping and editing, but even so, this course remains the most sought after. Continue reading
