ham sandwich on hummus bread


Late night snack.


The other day I had an urge for a sandwich but  I generally do not keep bread around so I set off to make ordinary bread the fast way. By fast I mean five or six hours not the usual  three days or so for the sourdough.

 The bread was started with 1 + 1/2  cups whey with a scant one fourth teaspoon sugar for the commercial yeast. Whey, because it was there, usually water or milk.

The rest is whole a quarter whole wheat to three quarters all-purpose flour. I added a few rounded tablespoons of leftover hummus that was spiced untraditionally. I thought it might help keep the bread moist, but setting up myself for disaster.

The dough was slow to start. I began wondering if the hummus was preventing it from rising properly but once it started then it was fine and the bread is delicious.
