A fan’s sourdough creations

Becky Zavada says, “I made a sourdough nutella star using Lisa Rayner’s sweet dough from her book “Wild bread“. I really love that book. I also made crackers and batter bread from that book and they both turned out great.” Purchase a Kindle or paper copy of Wild Bread at the link.

Blue corn pancakes for Christmas dinner

Here in the Southwest, Hopi-bred blue corn is a staple food. Blue cornmeal makes the most delicious pancakes. Sourdough pancakes are very easy and the sourdough adds an even greater depth of flavor. Of course, my pancakes are vegan.

No knead sourdough breads

While flatbreads like pancakes, crêpes and focaccia are easy to make, you can even make no-knead loaf breads. No knead doughs can be artisan doughs or sweet doughs.

Sourdough sweet doughs

Sweet doughs contain sweetener and fat. They have a softer crumb than artisan breads and often include fillings and toppings. And yes, you can make excellent sweet doughs with sourdough starter whole wheat or other whole grains.

Sourdough flatbreads, baked on oven tiles or on the stove top

 Sourdough flatbreads were the world’s first breads and continue to be highly popular. They are made from artisan doughs, sweet doughs, no-knead batters, and can contain fillings and toppings. From pizza to pancakes, flatbreads are eternally popular and especially easy to make. Here are some blog posts I have done on sourdough flatbread recipes:

Make your own sourdough loaf breads!

ANY bread can be made with a sourdough starter instead of commercial yeast. Sourdough loaf bread is one of the easiest breads to make. You can use plain flour/water/starter (artisan dough) or sweet dough containing sugar and fat. You can flavor loaf breads in multiple ways. You can bake your dough in a loaf pan of any shape, like the super long loaf bread pictured above. You can even bake sourdough batter in a loaf pan to make no-knead sliced bread!

Details are in my book Wild Bread: Handbaked sourdough artisan breads in your own kitchen:
