90% of the time I make sourdough bread, but the problem of waiting for inspiration to strike is that sometimes i’m caught out with the leaven not ready. Yupe, slow loaves do require some planning ahead, especially in these cold times. So I made a quick loaf this time, from Dan Lepard’s Short and Sweet. It has oats, linseed, pumpkin seeds, and I also added sunflower seeds. Moistened by butter and sweetened with honey, what’s there not to like? It makes perfect breakfast toast and is so easy to make. I’m floored each time I hear people say they need a bread machine to make bread.
