Busy baking, toasted flaxseeds sourdough

 

Baked with golden flaxseeds.... toasted and soaked. adds a beautiful fragrant to the bread.

 

Above, proof in normal tea towel in a basket. 

used my newly bought banneton proofing basket!

i am practicing scoring as well. pretty poor at it.

here is the crumb ... :) was waiting for the breads to cool down. 

it is not pure white bread. added wholegrain spelt flour and wholewheat flour. the crumb is not as open as a white bread. used a wholewheat starter as well.

Beautiful loaves, evonlim. I don't see any problem in your scoring. Especially love the way you scored the top one. It's possible it needed a tiny bit more proofing time, judging from the way the bottom one's scorings spread open that much but it's really extremely minor issue. Both look really great !

Well, looking at the crumb shot you just added now, I take back what I said before. I think your proofing was spot on. :)  

Is that raisin in the dough? I've never tried the combination of raisin and flaxseeds. Looks really yummy. I have to try it myself one day. Thanks for the inspiration.

 

ETA: sorry, just read other posts below. It's cranberry...  ;)

very nice breads to be proud of - and eat right away :-) Figs ,raisins and flax seeds are a nice combination.  You can also grind the flaz seeds in a coffee mill too.  They add really nice brown specks n the bread and they are much more digestible when ground.

Nice baking!
