Conference bake and Butternut Squash Bread
I am presenting at many IT conferences and other speakers know me for baking bread. Yesterday evening we had a welcome reception dinner for a conference in Bulgaria and I proposed to the organizer that I will provide all bread for the dinner.
To pair the bread with the menu I prepared 3 loaves:
- Butternut Squash bread with pumpkin seeds
- Oat porridge sourdough with flax, sunflower and sesame seeds
- Olive bread with Mediterranean spices
So for the butternut squash I used my Hokkaido squash bread recipe this time without sage YW and cinnamon. I used just spelt whole grain flour and according to my wife's wish I haven't added any seeds.
There was no difference in the procedure how to make the dough, but this time I was really amazed with so opened crumb which was extremely fluffy. I am sure this bread was the softest one I have ever made. This boule was reserved for home consumption while I am traveling around.
All three loaves just came out perfect and people really liked them. Mission accomplished!
Happy baking, Joze
