Sorry, this entry is only available in German.

There are only a few things that are as essential as a loaf of bread. For me the last home baked bread, made with my own sourdough, is already too long ago. Fate seemed to be against me, killing first not only my first rye sourdough, but also its successors, and soon after that the wheat starter followed as well. So yes. I needed fresh dough. Because self-made bread is […]

Recently I like to bake rolls with a cold overnight proofing in the fridge, so that we have fresh rolls on the weekend. The rolls from the bakery are always the same so we yearned for something else and also baking your own rolls is much cheaper, especially if you like some fancier rolls. These rustic rolls are substantial, but still fluffy. With a part rye flour they are perfect […]

After making my own wheat flour tortillas I wanted to make corn tortillas, of course. After a bit of research it turned out more difficult than expected, because you nead a special flour, called masa harina. Masa harina is a special treated corn flour which is nixtamalizated. Nix-ta-what? Nixtamalization is a traditonal Mexican process, which is already used since 1500 BC and improves the baking properties, inhances the flavour of […]

This bread wandered around in the english bloggersphere for months and after ignoring it first, I took a chance, bought some ingredients and baked it. Two times. It’s just that good. Sarah from My New Roots says it’s life changing. I can’t disagree. First I was quite sceptical, if this bread tastes good and if it tastes like bread after all. But after the first bite I didn’t even realized […]

 I promised to blog this recipe this week, yet, as the picture itself evoked already excitement on Facebook. But it was awesome! The recipe is from Jamie Oliver. Of course I altered the recipe here and there. I served the bread as a side dish for the first barbecue this season. And actually it was quite the best food that evening ;). The bread dough is delicious, although I didn’t […]

I’m back from vacation and after 6 weeks I’m totally relaxed, but not ready for the next step to come (writing application). The trip was great, but I’m so glad that I can finally prepare my own food again. First culinary thing I made after we came home was to bake a bread. Ok first feed the starter overnight, then bake the bread. This is my favourite bread so far. […]

Bread is such a German thing. We could be proud of our “bread roots”, but instead, almost all bread that is sold here, doesn’t deserve that name. Don’t get me wrong. The variety is huge, but the taste and shelf life are lacking and the number of ingredients is rising. Baking my own bread was going around in my head since months. Lots of food bloggers, blogged about making their […]

Today we talk about toast or sandwich bread. You know that kind of toast bread lying in the supermarkets. Full of air, missing flour. Mostly just wheat. Squishy texture. To talk about bread here, is ridiculous. But it’s easy to have on hand, either stored in the fridge for weeks or in the freezer.  It’s good for a quick breakfast, if there’s no more bread or granola in the house. […]
