This past weeks baking

I have been layed up with a twisted foot so I have had a busy week Baking and Cooking.

The Bread is a new one for me in Hydration. 28% Whole Wheat Sourdough at 80% Hydro, one with Lemon marinted  Olives and Oregano. The next with Toasted Walnuts and Sage.

Mixing in the flavours…..

Proofed and ready to bake after 16 hours...

Out of the oven...

Crumb Shots...

Breakfast Snadwich…Bacon & Egg on olive toast

Leftover Dough made into Pizza...

Also made Char siu bao for the sainted wife...

Then a Pear and Hazelnut cake for her workmates...

And some ribs for good measure...

Cheers all,

Wingnut

That's some nice baking.  Breads look stellar as usual but that hazelnut/pear cake is calling my name.  Where did you get that recipe I'd love to try that one out once the early pears show up here.  Please tell me it has some "beurre noisette" in it. 

Cheers

Sorry to hear about your foot, but looks like your wife and neighbors benefited :).  Great looking bread and dim sum and cake and ribs!

So is that a pork filling for the Dim Sum?

Wingnut,

Loaf looks wonderful.  I like the scoring pattern on it too.  I just baked a loaf with olives too but mine had just cheese added and no spices.  Love the way olives make a dough handle so I could almost feel your dough when looking at your photos.

All the other goodies look great too.  Lucky wife and friends.

Take Care,

Janet

What beautiful scoring!  That loaf immediately caught my attention when I scanned the pics on the bread browser.  Everything else looks good, too.

Best,

Syd
