Off topic. The Bread baking thread

Sorry if this does not belong here. Move if needed.

Anyone else bake bread? I love bread.
I am trying to perfect my sourdough. I am really close. It takes a while.

Here are a few pics of the last few loafs.

I’m not a baker but this brings back memories! I used to live in the same neighborhood with the famous sourdough bread company, Boudin. Because the San Francisco fog kept the air close to the ground, the “yeasty” scent would permeate the surrounding area every morning.

Now I need a baguette and some butter…

I love bread, here is a unwanted opinion that very few seems to get:

You can make the best sandwitch in the world but if you skimp on your bread quality, it’s garbage!
Your bread looks like it would make great sandwitches

My “šumava” of sorts (not visually, but conceptually) sourdough bread:

Some Laugenbrötchen:

My first attempt at “Middle class brioches” from Peter Reinhart’s book:

My “went to NYC once” bagels. Being Central European, I have little idea how these are supposed to taste, but I loved these.

100% agree with you. A good sandwhich needs the best bread.

Love baking bread! I can’t find a good picture but this is my go-to

Very easy and very good. Everybody should try this one.

I also have a cold ferment pizza dough recipe that’s just unbelievable. I do this more than bread loaves these days

Sourdough blueberry scones and sourdough blueberry muffins. I also do a lot of sourdough pizza. It’s so good.


Some people, some people like cupcakes exclusively
While I myself I say there is naught
Nor ought there be nothing so exalted
On the face of God’s grey earth
As that Prince of foods… the Muffin!"

“Some people prefer cupcakes better, I for one care less for them”

“God’s grey Earth” has stuck with me
and I still use it all the time!

I’m not into baking, but these little bread rolls are more cheese than anything. Pan de Yuca. Also known by other names.
