Bread from the future

I baked a couple of things this weekend.  The first was the Sourdough Carrot Cake recipe from King Arthur that someone (TXFarmer?) posted about a couple of months back.


Carrot Cake Muffins


I halved the recipe and baked them as cupcakes rather than a cake.  It is quite good and a useful way of disposing of ripe starter.


I thought I also baked a walnut levain today, but judging by the timestamp* this is a loaf that I'll bake 205 years from now.


Walnet Levain


It looks like it'll be good.  I'm looking forward to trying it someday!


 


* I suspect the fact that my 8 year old son has been borrowing my camera to make stop action movies with Lego figures recently has something to do with the timestamp getting changed.

I believe that loaf will taste great when the time comes Floyd. And ya can't beat carrot cake in my book!

It's a beautiful loaf for any era.

I expect to have gotten pretty good at bread baking, if I live so long.


I will have made 30,000 baguettes and might have the scoring right.


If my retirement plan does ok, I will have a steam-injected deck oven and a professional proofing box.


My tendonitis might be a tad worse, so I might need a spiral mixer.


TFL will have gone inter-galactic by then.

Those both look delicious! Good thing about pics having zero calories! I guess I don't have to worry about the second one for quite a while yet. Lovely bakes!

Good thing you used a levain in the walnut bread - it should increase the lasting qualities, though 2216 is a stretch.

Have you been time traveling again? If I try these will it lead me to the future?

I doubt I'll look as good as your bread if I make it to 2216....

 Simply amazing how real hand made bread has changed so little over more than 2 centuries. Thanks for giving us a glimpse into what future generations will hopefully know as bread.

I checked the date. It's a Sunday Floyd, and you have the day off to play with your family who will all be in a geriatric ward. lol

Are you sure you've told us all the ingredients in those cupcakes, Floyd?  ;-)

Hello Floyd, Everything looks tasty! and that carrot cake looks like a really good way to use extra starter. Thanks for posting the link to the KAF recipe.
