Baking Recipes

This page is a roll-up of all my naturally leavened sourdough bread baking recipes, plus anything else I've managed to concoct in my kitchen. Below you'll find baking recipes using fruit/nut/seed mix-ins, freshly milled flour, and recipes utilizing various grains (rye flour, Sonora wheat, spelt, Khorasan, and more). If you're looking for something very specific use the search button in the top right of the page to get right to it. Happy baking!
