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. In fact, my grandmother used to tell me that people would always invite themselves over for Sunday dinner. I think my grandmother slightly resented the imposition on her mother’s time and resources, but I never got the feeling that Maggie ever hesitated to show hospitality to anyone who needed a good meal. 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 currently offer Honey Wheat sourdough sandwich loaves. My sourdough is flavorful, but is not tangy 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. Keep scrolling for loaf sizes and pricing.

What types of flours do I use?

I use White Whole Wheat 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. I can also substitute freshly ground spelt for the white wheat flour upon request. An additional charge will apply.

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 nuts and eggs. If you have serious allergies to these ingredients, I advise you to purchase your bread from a guaranteed allergen safe facility.

  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!!!
