Have you heard of San Francisco sourdough bread? It’s leavened with wild yeast found in that part of the country. This is my local version, made with starter developed here in Georgetown. The bread’s sturdy crumb stands up well to all sorts of sandwich ingredients and also makes great toast.
Challah is an enriched bread, meaning it has some fat and sweetener in addition to the usual flour, water, yeast, and salt. The yellow color comes from eggs in the dough. This lovely braided loaf made with maple syrup, making it perfect for French toast. The texture of the bread is open enough to soak up lots of your egg & milk mixture, but firm enough not to turn to mush. Not into French toast? It would also be an elegant addition to your table for a family meal or dinner party.
This bread hearty bread includes sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, and flax seeds as well as some whole wheat flour. It makes excellent toast–try it topped with hummus!
Be warned–once you’ve had a soft, fresh homemade English muffin, you won’t want to go back to the ones you can buy in the grocery store! If you’re coming to one of the farmers markets to get some, come early, since they usually sell out. 😊
These delightful rolls are made from the same dough as my loaves of maple challah, just shaped a little differently. They’re perfect for sandwiches or burgers. If you like slightly sweet rolls (think Hawaiian bread), these are for you!
Authentic bagels can be difficult to find outside of New York and the surrounding area. These are the real deal–they have a chewy texture that only comes from boiling and then baking them. Toast one and top it with cream cheese or butter for breakfast, or make bagel sandwiches for lunch! I usually bring an assortment of plain, sesame, & everything to the market. If you’d like to pick up bagels with specific toppings, let me know a few days ahead of the market.
I find that people either love raisins or hate them. If you’re one of the former, these bagels are for you. I’ve added a bit of cinnamon to the dough, but the only sweetness comes from the raisins.
Try these fluffy cinnamon rolls for your next weekend breakfast! The brown sugar & cinnamon filling is just sweet enough, and the rolls are finished with a slightly tangy buttermilk glaze.
**Seasonal** This is the style of crumb cake that I grew up eating. The base is a slightly sweet, buttery sweet dough, and it’s topped with loads of streusel. I’ve added a layer of jam between the dough & the topping. The flavor will change seasonally, so check my weekly market menu email for what’s currently available.
