I seem to keep accumulating sourdough starter in my fridge (I hate to throw anything out) and every now and then I mix all my left over bits from the various tubs I have cluttering up the shelves and look for ways to get rid of it so I loved Karen's sweet and buttery treat called "Kouign Amann" so this weekend I thought I would have another go at making another one.
The Kouign Amann turned out great and smelt so good I spoilt it by not waiting for it to cool enough and so it was a bit doughy in the middle. Still it was just so delicious I can't help my self.
Suger, butter, apple and cinnamon ....yummmmmm
I ended up baking in a glass pie dish.
So I turned it out and just could not resist cutting into it.
I bet nobody else could resist this baby...
As I said I probably needed to cook it a little longer and wait a bit before cutting next time...It's just such comfort food..apple,butter, cinnamon and sugar wrapped around with crusty sourdough. What else could you ask for?
Last weekend I used up some left over starter perfecting my sourdough pizza base and trying out a new gas pizza oven. Of course all my sourdough pizza experiments have been inspired by Ross and his quest for the perfect pizza base. Last weekend I think I got pretty close to it. The crust was thick, crunchy bottom with light airy inside.. yum!
So next time you have left over starter consider making something delicious ...
