The 365 Bread (Jane Pittenger's Recipe)

Some of us have been baking Jane's famous rye bread for months now. But her most recent change to the recipe left out the caraway seeds and included red pepper flakes and cheddar cheese cubes. Oh, yum! Absolutely delicious. The crust was crispy and the inside very moist, and the flavors are fabulous.

For the story of how Jane's bread came to be named and tagged the "365-bread" involving:
@jgpittenger @taffy @haskar @byrdlip @domenicododaro 's wife @blueberry1222 @ludwigsdiana and @vankrey provided the starter

And for Jane's latest: http://365project.org/jgpittenger/extras/2021-01-04

And for this version of Jane's recipe:
Feed your sour dough starter:
1 c flour (rye or white or whole wheat)
1/2 c warm water
Let it bubble with plastic wrap over it overnight in a warm place.
Feed again in the morning:1 c flour + 1/2 c warm water and bubble in warm place again for several hours and then...

Ingredients:
1 c “fed” sourdough starter
1 1/2 c lukewarm water
2 tsp yeast
1 TBL sugar
2 1/2 tsp salt
2c rye flour
1 c whole wheat flour
Up to 2c white flour
1T red pepper flakes (JY: used Korean flakes)
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese in 1/4" cubes

Directions:
1) combine all ingredients to form a soft dough. I use bread hook on kitchen aid and beat them in gradually until they just begin to attach to the hook...still pretty moist...and then let mixer “knead” it for maybe 5 min and then knead by hand adding just enough flour to keep it from sticking to board. It seems to me it turns out lighter with less flour rather than more
2) Rise in covered oiled bowl until double..about 90 min
3) Gently divide in half and shape into two10-11" logs.
4) Roll each in a mixture of poppy seeds, sesame seeds, and coarse salt. Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise in warm place until very puffy...about an hour. Toward end of rising time, preheat oven to 425F
5) Spray loaves with lukewarm water
6) Make 2 diagonal slashes in each
7) Bake for 25- 30 minutes until deep golden brown. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack...or eat immediately if you are Jim and me (Jane)! Enjoy

Sounds very scrumptious.

Lovely collage

I am embarking on some sourdough today and tomorrow. It’s a long and involved process and yours looks amazing!

Great collage and the bread looks scrumptious

oh, all those delicious looking bread shots, wants me to get a bread maker lol....
January 6th, 2021  
yum
January 6th, 2021  
It looks good and sounds great but it's all a bit too involved for me. I'll just pop down and buy some sourdough bread.
January 6th, 2021  
Oooh, sounds and looks delicious - anything with cheese in and I'm there!
January 6th, 2021  
No, no, no. Rye bread without caraway seeds is like raisin bread without raisins. :-)

What a beautiful collage, your bread looks amazing. I think I should make a starter and try it! Thanks for the reminder Junko :-)
January 6th, 2021  
Looks delicious! Love how you put the photos of different stages into a collage
January 6th, 2021  
You have nailed the collage!! And of course, the bread looks fantastic. Thanks to @jgpittenger for getting us going on it! I just am re-igniting my starters which have been sitting in the 'fridge for 8 weeks.
January 6th, 2021  
This looks wonderful and sounds delicious.
January 6th, 2021  
Fabulous! I must try this.
January 6th, 2021  
sounds and looks great - at some point you'll get me started on bread ...
January 6th, 2021  
You had me at red pepper flakes ❤️

I have it on my list to make! I did a bunch of bread baking and my daughter has started the process of making sourdough starter--her third attempt at a loaf was divine!
January 7th, 2021  
What a neat collage you made of this!
January 7th, 2021  
Wasn’t it terrific! My last two bread makings were it
January 7th, 2021  
The texture in yours looks even better than mine
January 7th, 2021  
That looks yummy.

@vankrey -- you gave me magical starter! see the jar you gave it to me in and the huge amount it made for this recipe. Bubbles well.
January 7th, 2021  
@jgpittenger @vankrey gave me the starter for this round because I let my previous starter go bad and this new starter is magical in how well it works. You can see it in the crock in the first photo.
January 7th, 2021  
Yum-yum!
