Testing New Ideas

I have a permanent excess of sourdough starter, and in an effort to do something useful with it, apart from adding it to my compost, I have been trying various recipes, this adds to my freezer stock of bread.

Ideally I need some more customers to buy the stuff.

Anyhow, we have Sourdough Focaccia,

Sourdough Rolls,

very nice with butter and home-made Marmalade,

and finally, the Sourdough Ciabatta,

I also have recipes for Sourdough Mashed Potato rolls, Sourdough Potato Bread (With roasties inside!) and Lentil and Turmeric Sourdough. So next time I refresh my starters, I can try those.

I have Marmite Bread, Condensed Milk Bread and Cheese and Chorizo rolls to make for customers in Gravesend, plus the usual orders for Oats and Millie.

Jo from West Country Deli also got in touch, they need more Savoury Morsels, so next week looks like a busy one.

As I said, taste testers are still wanted, no experience needed, apply below.

The Great Brixfest Mackerel Bap Challenge!!!

I've finished, 200 Rolls all done and delivered, now it's a case of sit back and relax, I may pop down to the stall tomorrow and see if they are selling. I'll go in disguise in case they aren't!


Sophie from Millie and Me said that they sampled one (or two) and they went perfectly with the Mackerel. I might have to buy one. At least that way, they will have sales.

Curry Bun!!!!!

From the people that brought you Marmite Bread and the Cheese and Chorizo Roll, the Amazing Curry Bun.

Containing Spices, Onion and Chutney it's a cross between a Bhaji and a Roll, an ideal accompaniment to a glass of Lager.

Or at least that's the plan. If it works, or even if it doesn't, I can try the Sweet Chilli Roll as well.

The recipe is a closely guarded secret, (only because if it doesn't work I can tweak it)
but includes Mustard Oil, A Marsala blend for stuffed Paratha, Mango Chutney and Gram Flour, in addition to the Onion flour blend I normally use.

To make use of the oven, I made an overnight sourdough from a recipe that I found online at


which looked pretty easy, I made the dough,

rested it in the fridge overnight,

and baked it at the same time as the buns.

Talking of which, after the dough had risen,

I formed it into irregular shaped buns, (trying to get the Bhaji look)

20 Minutes in the oven and they were done,

Meanwhile the sourdough was still baking, it needed about an hour according to the recipe,
and it took that long for the middle to get up to temperature. But it looked great on the outside, and the crust was solid.

The crumb was pretty amazing, not too ventilated, just how I like it.

So I would say that's another success.Tomorrow I start getting the supplies ready for the Brixfest Rolls, and start the Rye sourdough for Oats. But at least today I've done some bread for me.

A New Beginning

I'm reducing the frequency of posts here, as they all seem to be the same. I've decided to start a Facebook page for Well Bread!, but will keep posting here when I do something new or different.

I'll leave you with pictures of my latest order,

Check us out here, https://www.facebook.com/pages/Well-Bread/ and like or share. Even better, order some stuff.
