Bread Week

While tweeting with my friend, Susan she happened to mention her plans to make sourdough, having been spurred on by another person. I haven't made sourdough in probably a year and a half, if not longer. The more we tweeted, the more we decided that it should be a bread-baking week. So here it is . . .

. . . BREAD WEEK!!

Come join us. Bake some type of bread or bread item (cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls, flatbread, etc.) and post it on your blog. Then come back here, sign the linky, and leave a comment. Even if you don't bake anything, share your homemade bread knowledge - a recipe, a tip, a memory, or whatever else comes to mind.

Personally, I plan to make sourdough, which means I need to some sponge going (glad it'll be warmer this week - that'll certainly help). Now that I've unboxed my grain mill, I believe a big old batch of whole wheat dough is in order. That will likely result in a loaf of bread, a batch of cinnamon rolls, and maybe some sandwich rolls.

Here's my sourdough starter, fresh out of refrigerated hibernation, ready and willing to become a bubbly, aromatic sponge.



Happy Baking!!

I want to try to develop a sourdough starter this week as well, but in the meantime here's my family's all-time favorite crusty-goodness bread recipe...the famous no-knead one that was circulating the internet awhile back. It uses a tiny bit of yeast and a long, slow rise. The beauty is that the dough can sit around and just get better and work around your schedule without being picky. Try it!
