Bread Box Cottage Bakery

Extra Large Honey Spelt Sourdough Loaf

I like to imagine that my great-grandmother Maggie had a Bread Box sitting on her Hoosier Cabinet to the left of her double kitchen window. If she did, whatever goodies it held would have been delicious. She was famed throughout the county for her delicious, home-cooking. She would serve a fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and green beans for the Sunday meal, and I imagine a nice, hot, buttery tin of biscuits sitting on her dining table to go along with her delicious Sunday dinner.

Maggie made delicious baked goods. Many people today don’t have the time or resources to bake for themselves. Enter my new endeavor.

The Bread Box.

I’d like to offer what fills my bread box to my local community for sale.

What type of bread do I sell?

I make sourdough bread. My sourdough is flavorful, but is not tangy and super sour like most sourdough loaves. This is because of the way that I care for my starter, and how I proof my dough. My loaves are great for sandwiches or toast. The bread has a soft springy texture and it holds together nicely. So, if your kids are like my kids and don’t like sour sourdough, then give these loaves a try and enjoy all the nutritional benefit of sourdough made with freshly milled wheat or spelt. And if you like the super sour taste just let me know and I’ll adjust the recipe to be sure that you get plenty of sour favor.

My bread is primarily whole grain. I use 2/3 whole grain flour and 1/3 all purpose flour in each loaf. This means higher nutrition compared to most small sourdough bakers which use only 25% whole grain flour in each loaf.

Keep scrolling for loaf sizes and pricing.

What types of flours do I use?

For my regular loaves I use white whole wheat and spelt that I mill fresh daily. I purchase my wheat from Wheat Montana which produces high quality, non-GMO grains. I also use King Arthur all-purpose flour which has been producing high quality flours in the U.S. since 1790.

Allergens:

I am very careful about mixing my bread with dedicated utensils to avoid cross contamination of ingredients. However, we are not an allergen free household. We do eat wheat, oats, nuts, coconut, eggs, dairy, soy, fish, and I bake with gluten free flours as well. If you have serious allergies to these or any other ingredient, I advise you to purchase your bread from a guaranteed allergen safe facility. In ordering from the Bread Box, you agree to hold the owner harmless for any injury or cross contamination of ingredients.

  1. We really enjoyed this mild doughy/dense bread.
    I brought it home, and half the loaf was gone 30 minutes later.
    My kids truly loved it, one of them commented that she couldn’t taste the sea salt, but nevertheless it was yummy.

  2. This bread is super yummy!!! I love it with butter, but it also works great as sandwich bread. You have a repeat customer here!!!

  3. I was recently fortunate to receive a loaf of the Sourdough Sandwich loaf from Rachel. Yum! It has a nice dense texture and a perfectly balanced taste…slightly sour, sensibly sweet! Perfect for buttered bread to go with soup or as a special treat for avocado toast! This versatile bread also lived up to its name as the delectable vehicle for a turkey, cheddar and watercress sandwich. Quality baking at its finest!

  4. We brought our bread home after a very filling meal out. The Bread Box bread was still warm, and we couldn’t resist. It was delicious! Just what you want out of bread: a nice crust, a soft inside. A hearty loaf too!

  5. We love our sour dough loaf! As someone who has lived in SF where sour dough is king, this bread is as good!! I can’t believe if. My kids even like it, which says a lot for my picky eaters.

  6. Your bread is so good, I usually don’t like sourdough bread but yours is so good, I ate 3 slices, my husband loves it with honey and 13 year old daughter loves it too.

  7. The sandwich bread tastes as good as it looks! We enjoyed it with butter and used it for grilled cheese sandwiches. My daughter proclaimed it was the best bread she’s ever tasted. Thanks Rachel for baking and providing an opportunity for us to enjoy your homemade bread!

  8. We ordered the rolls. They were delicious with some raspberry jam and butter! I especially liked how the bottom of the rolls were a little crispy…yum 🙂

  9. I am not usually a fan of sourdough bread; however I found this loaf to be enjoyable. It has a dense yet crumbly texture with a hearty flavor. I enjoyed toasting it with butter and adding a little honey. The bread was filling, but did not leave me with a heavy feeling like many breads do after eating them for me.

  10. My family consumed 2 sourdough boules and a gluten free one in record time. They were delicious. Very thick and hearty, but the best part is that I knew they were healthy. They gluten free loaf had all of the ingredients listed so I could see exactly what I was eating. And to top it off, they were beautiful! Works of art, really.
