Three Sourdough loaves
These three sourdough loaves are made with Doves Farm English Wholegrain Wheat flour mixed with Shipton Mill’s Organic White Strong Flour.

I made up the dough yesterday and folded it four times and about one hour intervals and then left it in the fridge overnight to retard.

This morning I took the dough out of the fridge to warm up while I had my breakfast, divided the dough and left it for 30 minutes. Then shaped them and put them into bannetons. They proved in a not so warm kitchen for about three hours before baking for 50 minutes with some steam trays to start.

  1. They look gorgeous! I always think of gorgeous fist sized sandwiches laden and bedecked with salad, avocado and dripping with mayo… (I really shouldn’t type comments just on tea time… 😉 )

    • Ahhh – a lovely image you conjure there. Now, where’s that mayo? 😀

      • Time to get making some of the good stuff methinks… a loaf of bread like that needs something special to hold it in your memories, although I figure you eat bread like this all of the time…is it possible to become immune to this kind of gorgeousness? 😉
