Travels with Sourdough

Almond and Raisin Sourdough

The underside of the Almond and Raisin Sourdough. A toasted almond crunch to a slice.

Wholemeal sourdough.

Sunflower and Linseed Sourdough Panini.

Date and Pecan Sourdough

350gms starter

600gms flour

2/3 cup chopped medjool dates

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1 tbs raw sugar

good shake of cinnamon

1 1/2 tps salt

I made this sourdough on the warmest day so far that I have toyed with the sourdoughs. Consequence- a lighter sourdough then I would normally make as it rose so quickly. I did two lots of folds in between proves. Verdict- um yes please! (My mum liked this one too, and said that I could make some next time I came down to visit. Have starter…will travel.)

    • Oh Celia if only I had the room I would be! Have to be content with the 12.5 kilo for now. I’m totally addicted to the whole sourdough journey, its quite funny how excited I get seeing how it will come out of the oven. Every time it’s different.


    • I’m not sure I could go back to just making yeasted ones now, its an addiction that must be fed…just like my starter. I don’t have stars in my eyes I have lumps of sourdough… The almond one is great for toast.


  1. Beautiful array of breads!
    Sourdough bread is addictive, I’m certain of it!
    Once you begin, you have a jar of starter on your back and a voracious craving in your belly- Feed ME!
    You may not know what you are doing, but you are doing it VERY well! 🙂


  2. Thanks Heidiannie. I have been playing around with plaiting my sourdoughs (thanks to you!) and am really happy with the results.
    It does make a difference having something to feed consistently.

    Christine pecans are good aren’t they!

    Yvette there are so many delightful breads in Italy you don’t need too 🙂
