pics - Muns ... or maybe Buffins?
I finally got around to posting a few recent things I have been baking recently.
Breaking with my usual whole grain habits, I decided to make some white flour English muffins using a levain with an overnight fermentation, then adding some baking soda in the morning. Only in my sleepy daze at the end of the day I made the dough with water in place of milk, so the results were more like a hybrid between a muffin and a bun - Buffins? Muns? any other suggested names?
The next loaves are a couple of sweet potato sourdough loaves I made inspired by the "warm confort bread" posted by inlovewithbread - they had a little cumin which added a lovely warming taste to them.
Lastly a couple of skinny french sticks (stiques?) from my own sourdough recipe - made with steam this time, which was a revelation in giving a thin, crispy crust! It was the first time I heard my loaves singing coming from the oven - quite a thrill in the middle of winter!
