A whole week of bread adventures!
Not all entirely successful….
Sourdough rye bread that I finally got around to baking in my little dutch oven. Beautiful loaf! Just not all that flavourful.
But finally, finally, to cap things off, a sourdough challah that was amazingly buoyant; this rose better, and with less commercial yeast, than any sourdough challah that I have made so far. I had 324g of starter, more than I’ve used before, and it performed super-well, though I did add 1/2 tsp of yeast.
The rise times were comparable to non-sourdough loaves, despite the wintry-cool house. On the downside, it tasted like there was no sugar in the loaf, and I’m really kind of wondering why (I’m pretty sure I added 1/4 cup!).
Took a picture before it baked, but got too busy to do another one afterwards!
Have a great week!!!
