Introduction: Maggies Loaf

Wow...this original recipe surpassed our expectation and was enjoyed by the whole family.

Our little four year old had a blast working through all of the tasks in making this loaf, guided by her older sister.

Step 1: Herbs Freshly Picked...

You'll need:

  • 1/2 Cup of sourdough starter Sourdough Starter
  • 1/2 Cup of flour
  • fresh herbs (we used thyme, oregano and rosemary)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 Cup grated cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp milk powder (5 grams)
  • pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)

Step 2: ...and Carefully Chopped

Finely chop the herbs.

Step 3: Sifting and Grating

Add the flour, grated cheese, milk powder and mix together.

Step 4: Herbs and Egg

Mix in the herbs, and in a separate bowl beat the egg...

Step 5: Mix the Egg With the Sourdough Starter

...then mix in the sourdough starter.

Note the extra support from a curious two year old...

Step 6:

Add the egg-mix into the floor, cheese and herb mix.

Step 7: Prepare for Bake-off

The dough will be quite stiff so pull/push/herd it into the baking tin.

Bake for 20 minutes at 180C (360F).

Step 8: Nice, Says Maggie

This is amazing when served warm and it can also be toasted.

You could serve this loaf as part of a lunch or supper, or try lightly coat a slice of this loaf with olive oil then grill until golden.
