Today is Baking Marathon Day. All projects started, but all incomplete just yet.
First the forsaken levain which had been hibernating in the chiller for weeks .. Sundried tomato sourdough loaf
Next power berries sponge for antioxidant power ..
And finally a chocolate cheese to indulge in
Will update in next post on the final products 🙂
I don’t really like to eat raisins, but I love them encased in bread dough! Call me weird, but I find the texture changed dramatically in the process!
Raisins, conditioned overnight, added towards the end of mix. It’s fun watching the raisins finding it’s way into the dough
Love the touch -you’ve got to be gentle yet sure. Too harsh and you may lose all the bubbles that have accumulated, too soft and you get a dough that lacks strength.
Am home alone, not too hungry yet craving for something to munch. Have been having too many cakes, decided to make a simple healthy snack.
A look into the chiller reveals many kinds of greens .. Various lettuce, radish, seaweed .. And since I have smoked salmon and bread left from yesterday, this is probably the fastest and easiest for a lazy afternoon.
Throw in some caramelized banana chips and my daily coffee .. Perfect balance of crisp, chew and crunch
I love bread baking, the touch of dough is truly therapeutic. I could be dead tired, or feeling unwell, but will instantly be energised once I start working on the dough. No one at home can really understand how I can be so sleepy during dinner, yet working late into the night waiting for the dough to ready itself. No one at home can really understand how I can complain of a nagging headache yet, covering my hands in flour and refusing to go to bed.
Just like to document this for those who share my passion, and for those who are thinking of starting.
