Intro: 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...
- 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...
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.
