Oobleck, my friendly pet sourdough starter has been helping me produce some lovely loaves in the past two weeks.
I just had to brag. Check out that oven spring. Which I learned is the rapid increase in the volume of bread during the first few minutes of baking. It occurs when the yeast hits a hot oven and gives its last gasp, puffing up the crust.
I just wish there were a way to show off the tasty and delicious aroma that should go with this photo.
The flavor is right up there with yummy and mouth watering. It goes so well with the plum jam DH made the other day. I love it when a plan comes together.
Note to self: back off on eating bread or ride bike a whole lot more.
Just in case you don't know where I got the name Oobleck, I stole it from Dr, Seuss.
