I love to bake. I love the feel of it and the simplicity of baking bread.
I have a sourdough starter at all times in the fridge. This weekend, I decided to refresh it and start on the four day odyssey which is Basic Sourdough Bread from The Bread Baker’s Apprentice.
It was a success.
I generally eat sprouted bread, so eating white flour sourdough is such a treat.
The recipe makes two loaves. I kept one at home and brought the other into work. Nothing like the appreciation co-workers give you when you ply them with food. Compliments on my baking/cooking always make my day.
I had a lot of the loaf left over and decided it was french toast for dinner. I cooked some apples with cinnamon and honey on top of Greek yogurt for a side. The french toast is of course topped with Vermont maple syrup because this New Englander only eats the real stuff.
Today was my rest day and I really needed it. This week has been long but Friday is just around the corner.
