Basil

Since 2016

I have had several sourdough starters given to me over the years, all of which have died due to my lack of attention. The bread I made has always been heavy and it wasn't until I got a copy of Dan Lepard's Short and Sweet that I realised I'd been doing everything wrong. This year I thought I'd make my own unique version using white spelt and coffee, making my dough wetter and kneading little

Characteristics

Basil is a fragrant sourdough with hints of coffee and slight sour notes. It is also slightly nutty, like me :) Because I use coffee as my liquid, the dough is a beautiful dusky colour; the crumb soft and well flavoured with only a slight whiff of coffee. It makes a great all round bread that lends itself particularly well to rye and wholemeal flour. Would also work with fruit and nuts.
