**Its cookie time in the HotLoaves Test kitchen**
We aren’t sure if we will be putting these on the menu anytime soon but wanted to share what we have been up to.
All recipes were from Broma Bakery’s website and we are very happy with them. We plan on making some modifications to suit our tastes but they all turned out great.

Strawberries & Cream cookie
Red Velvet Crinkle cookie
Fudgy Brownie cookie

In our opinion, a great cookie should be buttery with crispy edges and crust and a soft fudgy interior (there are of course exceptions to the rule as in the case of shortbread cookies).
My personal favorite is the strawberries and cream but that’s mostly because I love those flavors and I am not a huge fan of chocolate. My daughter on the other hand loved the Fudgy Brownie cookie. And we all loved the taste and texture of the red velvet cookie, although a little less cocoa powder next time.

**Product Feature**
Organic 100% Whole Wheat Sourdough

We take our testing seriously! We received our first shipment of organic flours from Janie’s mill this past week and we had to test it before using it in our loaves that we sell. Each millers’ flour, their milling process, the grain(even the same variety of grain), the time it was harvested, the season it grew in, the amount of rain during its growth, the temperature during the growing phase- all of these (and probably more) are factors that contribute towards how a flour is going to perform in a dough. In simple terms, how much water it is going to need depends on these factors and can vary a lot. All this to say, we think it is very important to test flours from a new shipment before we make large batches of dough with it using our established formulas or “wing it” as we go. I wing pretty much everything else in my life 😆 except my baking.

Moving on to the bread itself. It turned out great. It needed more water than our previous flour. The taste was quite similar - very nutty, fibrous (as you would expect from a 100% whole grain) but light.

Nutritionally, this loaf of bread is unmatched.
1.Naturally leavened (sourdough)
2. 100% whole grain
3. Organic

However, I have to say it it is not for everyone. If you are used to eating white bread, then it can feel very intense in both taste and texture. Although those who love it will not eat anything else. For those who want to gradually move towards more whole grains, we recommend the organic country bread which is 20% whole wheat and is much more mild tasting than the 100% whole wheat.

If you are looking to try the whole wheat, our recommendation is to eat it toasted well with some good quality salted butter.

Today in the HotLoaves test kitchen, we got serious about focaccia. Whenever I have made it in the past I have had too many other things going on to distract me. It has always turned out good but the one from today was exceptional. Presenting our Sourdough Focaccia with Rosemary and Sea salt. Once we have the logistics worked out, this will be going on the menu!

Let’s talk Sourdough Bagels. I have been wanting to talk about them for a very long time and I may have brought them up once but I have thought and over thought and hesitated. Well it’s a new year and I plan on hesitating less and doing more this year. I made the one in the pictures this morning. The starter was made two nights ago and the dough was made yesterday as is usually the case with sourdough baked goods. I am crazy about bagels! Might be my favorite-est baked good. I usually try to not be a purist (has been hard but I do really believe that not being stuck on a process or result breeds creativity). However, Bagels are one of those few things I make an exception for. Probably because I have had too many “Breads with a hole” instead of a Bagel from some popular places around where I live. It’s definitely not bread with a hole. The thin crispy crust and the chewy crumb are insane together. I think my sourdough bagels are all that. However, in my quest to be a Bagel purist, I haven’t offered them for sale because unlike my sourdough bread( great on the counter for a week), Bagels are best day 1 and should be frozen if not consumed after that. However, I am starting to realize that even though my day 2 and 3 Bagel is clearly not like my day 1 Bagel, it is still very enjoyable. Letting myself be ok with that might mean that HotLoaves will offer Bagels at some point. Maybe one Saturday each month? But they will definitely come with a disclosure to freeze past day 2 or 3. Many of you probably know that already but to be honest it is a bit scary because I can see some folks complaining about them being hard as a rock on day 4. I”ll probably get over that though 🤣

Some Nutella Cruffins from today’s bake. These are becoming quite popular. While we won’t be offering them every week, we plan on keeping them in our laminated pastry rotation.

What an incredible year it has been. I am incredibly grateful for all the love and support our tiny minority woman owned small business has received this year. I am equally proud of how much I have grown as a baker. I think I would scare myself if I started counting the hours of hard work it involved. 😆 All this happened because I finally found something I am truly passionate about. I have always half-assed things in the past and led myself to believe I am not a finisher. Sourdough baking changed that for me and for the first time in life I have felt like I am where I truly belong. With 2 kids under 4(when I first started)and a full time 9-5, I would not have been able to figure this out without the incredible support I have received from my husband . He has worked alongside me in every capacity I needed him to and for that I am forever grateful. Cheers to baking for all of you and to continuing on the never ending journey of learning.

Instagram did not do a good job of carrying over the write up. This is 30% whole grain, most of which is sprouted Spelt. Spelt is an ancient strain of wheat which has a really distinct strong flavor and is generally liked by many people if used between 20-50% of the total flour. It absorbs less water than many conventional wheat flours. It is considered nutritionally denser than some modern wheat, especially since this one is sprouted. It is so fun to work with so many different variables. This particular loaf is slightly overproofed. We had friends over for dinner and I forgot about it bulk fermenting. Our family of 4 polished it off between lunch and snack 😂 it was delicious!

So! We are taking the break back! 😂 The baker has had enough of a break from baking. I thought I would like the down time and although it has been nice, I am itching to get back to it. All that means is that you have the opportunity to buy some bread and pastry just in time for New Year’s Eve and some cinnamon rolls for the first day of the year! Ordering is now open for pickup on 12/31. The menu and quantities are both limited. For those who really wanted the cinnamon raisin bread and the rolls- they are both being offered along with a few other things. Go check out the menu at HotLoaves.com and place your orders while you are at it!

Baked some Rosemary twists, chocolate croissants, brown butter chocolate chip cookies and pistachio cranberry shortbread for a special order yesterday for a customer who wanted to use them for making assorted gift boxes. I wanted to keep some for myself! Should have baked extra 😆

Today has been a long dough day. Most of the breads, and pastries have been shaped and resting to be baked starting at 3am. Had to redo all our croissant dough(miscalculation on the bakers’ end). 🤪 but we are getting it done! Glad to have caught it in time !

More layers! I gush over them every time I see them. It never gets old! And some granola- don’t sleep on it if you haven’t tired it yet. Folks who buy it, buy it all the time. It has everything that the grocery store granola promises on the bags but lacks in the actual contents- loaded with pecans, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries. The sweetness comes from real maple syrup and a little brown sugar, oh also coconut oil! Yummy! It’s definitely in the bakers’ breakfast rotation. Is it weird that I top my oats with granola - oats on oats? Maybe but I love the crunch. Steelcut oats topped with granola, chopped apple(did I mention I love the crunch), some berries, a little maple syrup and milk of your choice. Don’t take my word for it, check out the reviews on our website HotLoaves.com.
