What's on deck for your weekend bake?
What's everyone doing? What's got you padding around your kitchen this morning? What kind of flour will you be sweeping up off the floor?
I didn't bake last weekend... I'm still recovering. I am making Sourdough Noir again for the Hubs. http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/49030/hubbins-favorite-sourdough-noir He is simply bananas for it and, as kind and supportive as he is about my insane bread hobby, in truth he would prefer a hunk of dark chocolate to a slice of bread. Usually. This bread is the exception. The heart wants what the heart wants! :) So, this weekend will be Sourdough Noir Part Deux -- and this time I remembered to add the dried instant espresso at the autolyse! I changed it up from my first creation of this loaf (see blog link, above) to suit my schedule -- including an overnight bulk ferment, which should only improve the final product. I imagine I may be checking the Hubbin into the funny farm when the last heel is gone.
I am also planning a granary-style loaf for this weekend (a la Hovis) -- maybe in a bread pan (I should say "tin"... when in Rome), but not sure yet. I have been soaking some barley since yesterday morning to add some interest. I'm making this one up as a I go along, so we'll see what happens. (That's the fun part...)
Ok. Now you.
