Today's breads

Today I baked a sourdough loaf in a pot...

and cinnamon rolls too.

10% of the sourdough loaf was whole wheat, otherwise it was the same as my previous loaves.

I hope everyone had good holidays and New Year!

Happy holidays and new year Floyd,

That pot bakes a great looking sourdough!

mmm ... maybe my new years resolution should be to make more cinnamon scrolls ...

Cheers,
Phil

Floyd.  Nice boule!  I'm a fan of how much flour you use on the crust.  And you always get me craving sweets when I see your bakes.  You're a bad influence to my weight!

I pass by Grounds for Coffee, home of the  "Fresh! Gooey Cinnamon Rolls" regularly and have to fight temptation.  Mine are slightly less unhealthy... at least that is how I rationalize it. :)

My rule of thumb is anything that is baked at home is healthy so you don't have to worry :-)

Love the loaves you are getting out of that pot!  Do you add any water or is it baked in it's own steam?

Take Care,

Janet

All the steam is self-produced.  I've been giving it a long time, like 25 minutes, with the lid on, before removing it for the final 20-30 minutes.

Have you tried the sticky buns @ Solly's Bagels?  They are really good.

Yes, and their babka buns.  Very rich and tasty.

Great looking boule and cinnamon buns Floyd!

Looks like you got some great color on your bread and the crust looks perfect.

Regards,

start out 2013! Nothing like a fine boule that morphs into  cinnamon rolls :-)

Happy baking Floyd!

Great looking boule (esp the crust!) and yummy looking rolls, Floyd!

I know you're a very busy person do not post your bread very often (...says someone who hasn't blogged about her bread for a long time.... :p), but it's really, really nice to see your lovely creation.

Very Happy New Year to you and your family! :)
