Sourdough pita bread

Sourdough pita bread

I am a massive fan of sourdough baking and published probably at least half a dozen sourdough related recipes already. One of my first sourdough related recipes was about creating your own sourdough starter also known as mother. My current starters are now about 2 years old and in order to keep them active and healthy I need to feed them regularly. Unless you bake a lot of bread this would normally require discarding part of the starter and feeding it…

Milk loaf

Milk loaf

It is that time in January when you are not longer full of cheese after Christmas and want to get back to simple things. One of the most simple breakfasts my family enjoys is a buttered slice of milk bread with jam or honey accompanied by a cup of freshly brewed cappuccino. Milk gives this bread a wonderfully soft crumb and little sugar added makes it a bit more special. It is delicious when freshly baked. But if for some…
