Hearty Whole Wheat Sourdough Boules with Poppy & Pumpkin Seeds,

'Earthy' was how a friend describe this sourdough boule. It was downright earthy because it was made with organic whole wheat flour from Bob's Red Mill. The earthiness paired well with the nutty flavors of poppy and pumpkin seeds that was added. A hearty bread indeed

Bread Making Timetable

As my young sourdough starter matures (2 months old), I find it improves the flavour and structure of the bread I made. As I practice and get familiar with the routine of bread making, I find myself more at ease working with the dough rather than fussing over it.

Triple Chocolate S'mores Cookie Cake

'Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate with some marshmallow and cookie and then more chocolate' - that was the request from my eldest kid for her birthday cake. She loves her dark chocolate and only eats desserts that are chocolate base.

White Country Sourdough Boules

My first homemade whole wheat sourdough starter that I used to make last week whole wheat boules was fed for another week and this was what my 'pet' rewarded me with today.

I have also made another organic raisins sourdough starter, where I will be using it to make some whole wheat boules.

Homemade Sourdough Starter with Organic Raisins

My newest 'pet', sourdough starter, is made with organic raisins. I got this pack of raisins (any organic raisins will work) for the salad and realized that I can use the rest of it to make a raisin sourdough starter. That's how a new bread experiment began.
