Obviously, we used the event to promote ourselves, so we baked as many different types of bread in 24 hours as possible! Not as easy as it sounds, as each loaf needed to be timed. You can't just knead a hugh amount of dough, shape it and move on as we only have a domestic oven, therefore, we timed each loaf (or every two loaves to be precise) with 40 minutes space inbetween for the bake. Most of the time this approach worked. We started with the humble white loaf.
Next, onto our Hippy Loaf. One of our biggest sellers, this combines malted wheat with seeds, plus honey. People love the taste and, deep down, we're all hippies aren't we?!
At the fair we had tasters of the first three types of loaf - white, wholemeal and hippy. Good idea from my OH!
Meanwhile, we'd had our sourdough proving. People asked me at the street fair, what's a sourdough? I said the clue really is in the title. Not a taste you'll forget, but one you'll hopefully love! As with one of the Hippies, you'll spot that the proving baskets were now being used!
