Buttermilk Bread

This bread here is a simple wheat bread refined with buttermilk, which not only benefits the freshness of the bread but also the flavor. The delicate-sour note makes the small but subtle difference.  

Sonntagsbrot (Sunday Bread)

Richer than a simple wheat bread but not as sweet as a Brioche. I reserve this bread for weekend breakfasts with the family. Butter, strawberry jam or Nutella are my favorite spreads on the Sunday Bread.    

Broa (Portuguese​ Cornbread)

Traditional American cornbread is a butter or lard-enriched quick bread, leavened with baking powder and baking soda. It is usually pretty sweet. I make mine with yeasted Broa dough and bake it in a cast-iron pot. Broa is a very rustic cornbread from the Portuguese countryside.  It is usually served with soups and spicy meat stews but…

Walnut Bread

The aromatic starter dough, made from whole wheat flour and sourdough, gives this bread not only explicitly more flavor, but also a particularly fluffy crumb. The roasted walnuts make for the crunch. Mild sausage and cheese, as well as subtly spiced spreads fit wonderfully. Please try it out. It’s worth it!

Thereafter the dough needs to rest for 12 to 14 hours. The best dish to bake the bread is a cast iron or pottery…
