Multigrain Sourdough Sandwich Bread (in theory)

May’s bread is now one for the books; yet another candidate for the baking fail program, Nailed It.  (I hear this show is getting ready for its third season.)

The Kitchen of the Month was Karen’s Kitchen Stories.  Karen challenged us to make a starter and use it to make Multigrain Sourdough Sandwich Bread.  

The other bakers’ breads were successful, so I have no idea what I did wrong.  I even made it twice!  The second time I watched it like a hawk, getting it into the oven at the perfect time, but it still ended up looking badly.  It tasted just fine, but won’t win any beauty prizes.  If I ever figure out the problem, I will cheer.

The starter, however, has been doing just fine, nice and bubbly and perfumed with alcohol.   I have used it to make other baked products, each one turning out as expected. 

Take a look at the beautiful breads that the other Babes made.  If you would like to participate as a Buddy, get the recipe from Karen’s blog, and share your results with her by May 29th to be included in the roundup.

To see what the bread is supposed to look like, stop by the other Babe’s blogs.
