Sunday bake-off!!

So this Sunday turned into a baking marathon! Two fresh loaves of bread were being created; one sourdough loaf made using a sourdough culture that I started a little over a week ago [thanks to the constant guidance of a very close friend in the UK], a white loaf of bread that is rising as this post is typed and a rhubarb grunt which just came out of the oven…
The sourdough loaf will not be baked until tomorrow as it requires an overnight resting/rising period, but already is looking amazing! As for the white loaf, it requires a slow rise and then an additional rise before being baked. The ‘grunt’ takes practically no time to prep and a little over forty-minutes to bake-off! Full of wonderfully tart rhubarb, it’s just what we needed to end this amazing weekend…
What will be conjured up next!

at a low simmer…
