What can’t one do with this Sturdiwheat Baguette mix?
This takes a bit longer than the regular Sturdiwheat mix, but it is sooooooo worth it.
To start, dissolve yeast packet contents in 2.25 C warm water. Add 1.5 C of the mix and stir until smooth. Cover and let this sponge cure for up to 24 hours. If cured in the refrigerator, bring to room temperature for 1 hour before using.
Natural and Healthy!
Sturdiwheat Focaccia / Snack Bread Mix is a wonderfully surprising and pleasant change from what we often consider Focaccia. It is filled with healthy grains and steps up a BLT and other sandwiches beautifully. It has a great robust earthy flavor from the grains and you can truly taste this bread – whether it is on a delicate veggie sandwich on a mighty sandwich with intense meaty and flavorful fillings.
As an appetizer bread with cheeses it is a special treat for your guests – or even just for you and yours while waiting for dinner in the evening – or for a snack whenever!
For this baking session I added fresh rosemary to the top. As you can see, it looks delicious and tastes equally as nice! Use the package instructions – just be sure you let it rise in the pan before baking. About an hour is good until it doubles in size. You do want to let it rise in the pan because with the thinness of the bread, it doesn’t get a long time in the oven to rise.
I will report on my next experiment with some other toppings. I am expecting similar results.
Oh – I used a pizza pan from a local take it/bake it outlet (pizza came in it and I just re-used it), and it made a great undercrust on this bread. But you can use any metal pan.
This is such a great bread. And Sturdiwheat, as always, is making your life in the kitchen easier. Enjoy!
