Sourdough bread – Coil Fold

Today we have the second in the series of ‘Bread of a kind’. I have made another sourdough bread, a boule but this time I have used the coil folding method instead of the usual stretch and fold method for strengthening and developing the gluten in the dough. Coil fold seemed easier to me and I like it the few times I have done it … Continue reading Sourdough bread – Coil Fold

Stiff Dough Sourdough Bread

This week’s theme is ‘Breads of a kind’ and it is as if this theme was picked just for me. I was so ecstatic to see this and the buns theme in the same month.

As I continue discovering innumerable things about sourdough baking, I figured I would post three sourdough breads … Continue reading Stiff Dough Sourdough Bread

Eggless Herbed Scones

It reminds me of the endless stories from my childhood when I read Enid Blyton tales with secret picnics, afternoon teas and midnight feasts and almost everyone of them having scones on the menu. As a child I was so curious about what scones are and how they taste. So now I love making them because it … Continue reading Eggless Herbed Scones

Cumin flavoured Cookies

The house is beginning to resemble a home somewhat though I have to yet be able to locate everything I packed. The good news is I figured out where the camera and laptop are and so this week’s posts are kind of better than last week’s. This is first of my three posts for the theme, ‘Savory Bakes’ that I am hosting, part of the … Continue reading Cumin flavoured Cookies
