Whole Wheat Cranberry Walnut Raisin Sourdough

My own combination using a whole wheat fruit & nut bread recipe from DOUGH. This is the second bread I’ve made "from" this book. I added a starter I made around a week ago… I’ve named it George.

The taste? I think I’ll add a bit more dried fruit in next time as the addition of 1.5 cups of George seemed to have decreased the fruit and nut ratio vs. the bread. However I did detect a faint sour flavour, which was very nice. The whole wheat part of it all made me feel healthy eating it. Nice crust:innards ratio once again. 🙂

My cuppy cake had a little air bubble in it.

The use of buckwheat continues as both CL and I were served a mini-cupcake/muffin like butter cake that was made of buckwheat flour and studded with moist bits of apples. Delicate, moist, with a tight crumb, it is easy to appreciate why Japanese desserts are in such small portions – you really do need bites to be satisfied. In line with the previous courses, this cake was light enough not to overwhelm the zen-like qualities of the preceeding soba meal.
