Sesame & Flax Seed Sourdough

A bit of an improvisation on a basic recipe from Hamelman - his seeded sourdough, but I omitted sunflower seeds, increased the sesame, the flax seeds, and added commercial yeast to speed things up a little....

 

but worked great!  We loved this bread...

That is one great looking bread!  I like the crumb and the seeds throughout.  Bet it tastes really good toasted with a bit o'butter on it.  Great job!

Love the look on the pup's face - 'A little something for a starving puppy, perhaps?'

Buck is our rescue dog, was terribly abused in the past...  Anyway, he won't make a noise, won't bark, won't try to grab the food from the table, just sits there, paralyzed, staring...    Of course, he does get a little treat.... but the vet made us promise to put him on a  more strict diet when Spring comes... he needs to lose a little weight. Sourdough and cheese will have to be kept to a minimum level....

Buck sounds like a great dog that is so lucky to have your loving home.

We have 5 cats, 4 of them rescues and 1 adopted Cleo, after her mother passed away.

I try not to give my cats any human food either, but if I'm eating cereal Cosmo has a homing device installed and mysteriously shows up to help by sticking his paw into my milk!  He also insisted on trying my Ale sweetpotato bread and actually gave it 2 paws up :).

Regards,

Ian

Buck has me mesmerized too!  What a fine rescue dog.    See Lucy ....that is what an apprentice is supposed to do -No barking, no stealing food off the table,no baking .....:-)  Love your bread as usual.  Very well done.

Happy baking Sally
