Sourdough Multi grain Sandwich Bread

It’s that time of the year when the ovens in most households are going to be working overtime. It’s holiday season and to jump start my baking spree I joined the lovely group of ladies doing the bake-a-thon. Champa @ Versatile Vegetarian Kitchen is the brain behind this bake-a-thon. The group has been doing this baking marathon for the past couple of years and I’m joining in the fun for the first time this year. Group is planning to post 3 days a week, so look forward to some delicious sweet & savory bakes in the coming days. I’m always…

Sourdough Banana Bread

This is the last of the banana recipes from my drafts. This banana bread recipe uses 2 ingredients that I always have on hand, my soudough starter and of course the bananas. My starter is now more than 3 years old and it has been through a lot already in these 3 years. I forget to feed it regularly, but in spite of the neglect it has been doing well (knock on wood). Even though this bread has sourdough, it does not taste sour. All you can taste is the banana. I think the sourdough makes the bread really moist…

Corn & Scallion Pancakes

Blogging Marathon # 26: Week 3/ Day 2 Theme: Pick 1 ingredient and Cook from 3 books – Breakfast Combo Dish: Corn & Scallion Pancakes When I started looking for breakfast dishes with corn, most of the recipes used cornmeal instead of whole corn. I found this savory corn pancakes recipe in the King Arthur Flour catalog. These can be served for breakfast or even brunch with black bean salsa and a dollop of sour cream.

Sourdough Waffles

Blogging Marathon# 25: Week 4/ Day 1 Theme: Breakfast on the Run Dish: Sourdough Waffles Breakfast in our household is the least thought out meal of the day. It’s usually toast or cereal or a granola bar. So for the last week of BM# 25, I decided to try recipes for “Breakfast on the Run”. Valli wants us to make dishes that take less than 30 minutes to make from scratch or 15 minutes if assembled.

Sourdough Chocolate Bread

VeganMofo Day 5: My sourdough starter has been neglected for quite sometime now. During my 3rd trimester, I neither had the energy nor the time to even feed the poor starter. I can’t even explain why or how I brought it out and fed it just hours before I rushed to the hospital for delivery!!!! I had the presence of mind to put it back in the fridge before leaving the house (??). So finally I felt it was time to use the sourdough starter and I made this amazing Sourdough Chocolate Bread. I had this recipe bookmarked forever and…

Grilled Veggie & Cheese Stuffed Rolls

After that decadent stuffed breakfast and indulgent stuffed lunch, I have a light & healthy stuffed dish for dinner. Today’s recipe is from King Arthur Flour’s Baking Sheet newsletter. In this dish, roasted vegetables and cheese are rolled in a yeasty bread dough and baked to make light & flaky stuffed rolls that are perfect for a meal with some salad on the side or even as a quick pick-me up breakfast. The original recipe used roasted vegetables, but I used left over grilled vegetables. Also the original recipe called for garlic herb cheese (like Boursin) or goat cheese, but…

Sourdough – Zucchini Bread

Today I have yet another bread recipe that uses sour dough starter. I have to admit I’m not so good at taking care of my starter. I have it sitting in my fridge and I feed when I remember (which usually happens once may be every 2 weeks), but (knock on wood) it’s doing pretty good given the circumstances. So with the bread baking week, I thought it’s probably time to properly feed the starter and used the cast off to make this quick bread and kulchas that I previously posted. Recipe adapted from Simple Math Bakery. This turned out…

Onion Kulcha made with Sourdough

The minute I read Valli’s description of “Bread Baking” on BM# 15 announcement, I knew I have to make an Indian bread for the marathon. So after 2 days of Western breads I have this very Indian Kulcha that is baked in the oven. Recipe is adapted from Raghavan Iyer’s “660 Curries” cookbook. I actually made a lot of changes to the original recipe — I used some sourdough starter as I was feeding my starter that day and used the cast off to make these kulchas. I added chapati flour (atta) along with all-purpose flour (original recipe used only…

Injera (Ethiopian Sourdough Crepes)

This is a foolproof recipe for Injera that I found on one of the forums at Fresh Loaf website. I forgot to write down the name of the person who gave the recipe on the forum, but it really works. I have read that many people had trouble making injeras, with stinky batters, crepes sticking to the pan etc. But using sourdough starter and steaming the crepe before flipping them made “the best” Injera I’ve ever eaten (to be honest I ate them only once in my life in, Mesob, an Ethiopian restaurant in NJ). This is another great way…
