Overnight Sally Sourdough...

I followed Celia's tutorial for this bread...


I began feeding my Sally starter on Friday afternoon but she was still sluggish yesterday so I just tipped that out and started again. Naughty Sally!
~
So starting over, at 1pm I fed 1/2 cup of starter with 1/4 cup bakers flour and water...
4.30pm I fed it 1/2 cup flour and water...
Then I promply forgot about it as I got busy making dinner later thst evening. It wasn't until we were going to bed that I remembered it. 
~
I peered in at Sally and she was nicely bubbly and ready to party!
So at 11pm (!) I am mixing dough in my mixer, crazy lady style!
~
Sally had risen to the top of my big bowl this morning ~ good girl!
~
I decided I'd make a pistachio and cranberry loaf and a plain loaf...

Deliciously fluffy dough plopped out of the bowl...
~
I folded in the thirds...
~
...and divided it in two.
~
I shaped the first loaf just by gently pulling the outer edged into the middle, round and around...
~
...then plopped it into the cane banneton which I hope I have floured enough!
~
The second loaf, I massaged in some pistachios and cranberrys, just turning the fruit and nuts in until they disappeared, then added more to do the same. 
~
I have no idea how this will turn out but we'll give it a go.
~
Here it is all combined...
~
Both loaves ready to prove...
~
Hooray! It came out of the banneton without sticking! Happy dance!
~
Celia says to "slash with panache"...
~
~
45 minutes later...
~
Yum!
I sliced it immediately to see how it was. I'm hoping the fruit/nut distribution will be better through the middle of the loaf.
It is delicious!

Cheers - Joolz xx

  2. Joolz, thanks for the reminder as I need to wake up my Gertrude and feed her. I am going to have a go at making beetroot and feta cheese sourdough.
