    Seigle D’Auvergne 

    Inspired by Mick and Zeb’s efforts with making this rye bread I had a go myself. It’s the one where you pour over 46 c water over the sourdough and rye flour. This brings the mixture down to 37 c. The crumb was still sticky though after resting for 24 hours but tasted very good. I used  two thirds wholemeal rye and a third white flour.



    have edited to show image directly in post (only a link not embedded) hope that’s ok, and I’ve just added a link to Mick’s post on this bread too – Zeb

        Hope not interfering, I don’t know how familiar everyone is with the wordpress dashboard. Anyway that is a beautiful loaf Ben! Did you like the taste?

            It should then be ideal for sandwiches on the train up to the DDD! It was a good flavour though perhaps not as “fruity” as some other rye breads I’ve made. The process reminds me of the detmolder method with two different temperature ranges.

    Concrete capers 

    I got a bit carried away today and my bread hit the roof of the oven leaving an H impressed on the top of the loaf.

    The other day I knocked up some chelsea buns.

    Today we cast the sides of the oven, this has turned into quite a project, lets hope we can dry it out in time.

      Your chelsea buns look very nice,

      Is there a list of things that have been planned to be made?
      Such as sweet dough etc?
