Wild Bread

Yesterday’s loaf of Dutch Oven wild bread (no store-bought yeast used, just 1/2 cup of my refrigerator sourdough mother) was so happy when it hit the oven it exploded sideways. This loaf was destined for my daughter’s household. I have perfected this kind of loaf so that it’s airy inside but super moist by working with a more wet dough when I knead and fold it. If you haven’t yet toyed with the idea of nurturing a sourdough mother, I encourage you to take the leap.

    I have a really good friend who loves sourdough bread and has been experimenting with many recipes lately. She talks with me all the time about what’s working and what she doesn’t like. I know she doesn’t have a sourdough mother, so I will have to encourage her to give it a try.

    These are the only kind of donuts that I truly enjoy. They are especially delicious when the batter is made with apple cider and they are rolled in the cinnamon sugar. Pure Bliss with a cup of coffee!

    ok help me out here, what is MaryJane’s Budget Mix?

  5. Karlyne says:

    Please bring me one. I don’t want to be greedy, so I won’t ask for two.

  6. karen dingmann says:

    I got some donut pans for Christmas so I can bake donuts in the oven. Could this be altered to use it that way and how would I do that? Thanks

    MaryJane I love all the recipes that you post. So when are you going to print a cookbook?????

    • MaryJane says:

      Well, strange that you should ask. Today I’m putting the finishing touches on a 400 page cookbook/cow how-to book called Milk Cow Kitchen. It’ll be out in the early spring and has 15 cheese making recipes as well as 75 meal recipes.

  8. Karlyne says:

    When are you going to open a traveling restaurant???

  9. Sharon says:

    I wonder if this would work using gluten free baking mix to replace the budget mix? Any one know? They sound yummy and fun to make, but I need to eat gluten free.
