Sourdough, Three Ways


Hello Dear Reader,

As I mentioned last weekend, I have been making a lot of super yummy Sourdough lately. I have made Plain and Simple White, Toasted Oats and Honey, the recipe is from The Life of Clare, and these three, which are a Light Rye and Caraway, a Pumpkin Sourdough with Sunflower Seeds and Sage and a Fruit and Spice Sourdough Loaf.

Any way I make it, it is delicious and wholesome. It still amazes me that the basic Sourdough bread is made from only 3 ingredients - Flour, Water and Salt, this neutral base can then be added to, to create wonderful sourdough varieties.

Light Rye Sourdough with Caraway seeds

This is a sensational loaf, it is beautiful with a crumbly vintage cheese and sweet, from the vine, tomatoes

For the Light Rye and Caraway loaf:
Follow the instructions for the basic sourdough here and then substitute 1 cup of the white bread flour for 1 cup of Rye flour plus add 1 teaspoon of Caraway seeds into the flour mix and then sprinkle some on top of the loaf before baking. 

Ingredients for Pumpkin Sourdough with Sunflower Seeds and Sage
(I forgot to put the Sunflower Seeds in the photo)

Sunshine-y yellow Pumpkin Sourdough with Sunflower seeds and sage 

For the Pumpkin, Sunflower seed and Sage loaf:

Follow the instructions for the basic sourdough here with the addition of 120 grams of baked and mashed pumpkin, 12 sage leaves, chopped finely and 1/4 cup of Sunflower seeds, some mixed through the flour before adding other ingredients and the rest sprinkled on top before baking


Fruit and Spice Sourdough Loaf 
Beautiful toasted with butter and honey

For the Fruit and Spice loaf:

Follow the instructions for the basic sourdough here with the addition of 125 grams of sultanas, 1 and1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 40 grams of brown sugar to the flour, mixing well, before adding other ingredients.

So, tell me, what varieties of breads do you make?
Sweet or Savoury?
