Egged breads

Now that 90+ degree days are here, I've moved my bread-baking outside to the Egg. Here's a sourdough boule and some seeded twists, both Egg-baked (and from recipes in Amy's Breads cookbook). The dough uses a sourdough starter, built into a stiff-dough levain, then into a final dough. Not hard, but spread out over several days. A long-fermented loaf is a good way to have a "kitchen project" going during the week--intermediate steps require little active time, and you can schedule the baking for a slow, weekend morning or a time when you'll be lighting the Egg anyway.
And the seeded twists, after baking:

    Awesome bread! Do I see a touch of rye in the boule? And it looks like you use a reed basket for fermentation. Awesome.

    Good Morning Celeste. I'm currently in the midst of my third refreshment for my sourdough starter.....looks as if I can start my sponge in about 8-12 hours. Sure hope my bread comes out as good as yours. :)

  • The original recipe called for a touch of pumpernickel flour (rye), but I had none, so I used a touch of white whole wheat.
    ETA: and the loaf was indeed proofed in a brotform (coiled willow, though, rather than reed). Good eye.
