recent simple bakes
















Nothing fancy, just basic baking.

AP flour unbleached, overnight cold fermentation in the fridge, spray and steam pan at the start of the bake, came out of the oven making cracking sounds.

Reinhart's crackers are facinating.  I made a basic variation of the whole wheat with sesame seeds.


 First try with wet dough.  Should have used more steam.

Nice breads there, Blackbird. I really like the crackers too.

On steam: I'm hoping lava rock will get me more steam! I just can't generate enough of it by other regular methods.
