Dark Onion Rye
I also learned to love sourdough breads and so I began to work on Breadchick’s sourdough starter. I was surprised how wonderful it worked out and had lost of fun to feed Harry (rye sourdough) and Sally (spelt sourdough) throughout this 20 days.
Mrs Q. says it’s much too much work to do sourdough breads – she is right regarding the time budget you’ll need to do a bread with sourdough compared to yeast.
But and – that what counts in my eyes – with a little planning you get paid with a heavenly tasteful bread.
Breadchick’s Dark Onion Rye
I made the sweated onions myself (didn’t like to use dried ones) and used spring onions cause they were in my pantry and I like the taste better than “normal” onions.
I also substituted caraway with cumin ’cause I really hate the taste of caraway but don’t mind cumin.
So this is my masterpiece *hehe*
I followed Mary’s recipe as I found Ulrike’s too late and worried just like Zorra if it might end in a brick experience as well as the second proofing was a little lazy and it did not rise as much as Sher’s or Mary’s… Well I finally decided to bake it anyway and it came out a just perfect little loaf….
Mmmmm and the smell of it… I tasted the first slice plain and it was just perfect and then the second one with butter and some radish! Mmmmmh.. need I say more?
Just one thing that bothers me: my sourdough breads always seem to crackle…
See what I mean?
UPDATE: Got my Badge from Mary – I am proud to be a Bread Baking Buddy again this month:
If it wasn’t for Sher I think I’s never even tried… ;o)
