I love my sourdough starter, as it helps me to make delicious bread. I have two them in my hand but only one is surviving now and other one died. I make sourdough bread because it is healthy and helpful for my hubby’s diabetes. Yes and it also helps him to control his blood sugar and also it is really filling you don’t need to eat a lot one or two slice is enough until next food. I was experimenting with recipes from my bread book collection, this overnight country brown sourdough bread from one of my favorite book.
I bake at least one sourdough bread every week. Earlier I used to follow the recipes line by line now I am changing it to put my own twists and taste into the recipe. I like Ken Forkish recipes, however it makes lot of leaven and that means lots of flour for a single recipe. I don’t like to waste any flour as bread flours are really expensive so like to cut down on that part. And I don’t think it will comprise the taste so it is fine. Nowadays due to winter, kitchen is cold so when I crank up the oven it is nice to stand near and watching the baking bread.
For this recipe, increased the whole wheat flour than the original recipe and also increased the hydration as I am obsessed with yeasty holes. Yes I was able to get the perfect ears in bread while baking also. Baking is always fun when you get what you looking for. This is simple and delicious bread as soon as I took photo’s my little guy want to taste the bread. They are really delicious and with good crust and chewy interior.
Still I need to work on the scoring part, as I know practice make it perfect. Today we went to DPS to change our address in the Driver’s license, the officer who attended me wanted the naturalization certificate which I didn’t have in hand. But the officer who was helping my husband told him your passport is a proof of citizenship and is enough. Then Hubby told her, that the officer who was helping my wife would not accept the passport. This lady left the seat and went to officer who was helping me and told her to change a sequence on the computer. Finally it got approved and both I and my husband got a new driver’s license. That indicates that for everything working knowledge is needed.
After cutting the bread, I was able to find some tunnel and holes which made me happy.
Coming back to the recipe, here is the delicious overnight country brown sourdough bread. Try it you will love it.
