Today is Baking Marathon Day

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 🙂

Raisin sourdough Loaf

Raisin sourdough

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!


Mixing in action

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.


Ready to bake


“Whatever available in chiller” lunch

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

Salmon Sandwich


Quick lunch .. Complete and wholesome


Love those huge open crumbs, thanks to the very active baby!
