Sourdough Pain Au Chocolat and Kouign Amann

Baked Sourdough Pain Au Chocolat and Kouign Amann. I hadn’t made these I a bit and my wife really likes the Pain Au Chocolat. They all start out with same laminated dough as my Sourdough Croissants. Different shape and inclusion of the chocolate for the Pain Au Chocolat and sugar for the Kouign Amann. IContinue reading “Sourdough Pain Au Chocolat and Kouign Amann”

Savory Sourdough Danishes

Had a desire to make savory Danishes again. Think it was prompted by seeing my Rosemary in my garden take off growing again. Filling was caramelized shallots, brie, and figs topped with a fresh rosemary, black pepper and honey drizzle. I must admit that drizzle is unexpectedly good! BTW when I mentioned “caramelized shallots“ IContinue reading “Savory Sourdough Danishes”

Sourdough Cherry and Apple Danishes

Oh My Goodness!! Tried a new recipe and this is a definite keeper! I’ve been trying out new combinations using my base laminated dough I use for croissants.

Savory Sourdough Pastries

Trying savory sourdough pastries. I’d never made some before so I thought I’d give it a go! I used my standard laminated dough recipe and method up to the point of cutting/shaping. I cut eight rectangles, cut holes out of four and then stacked. In hindsight I could have let rise a bit more (seeContinue reading “Savory Sourdough Pastries”
