Black Sesame Einkorn Sourdough

Updated: Jun 7, 2021

Do you agree that you find tranquility in sourdough baking? Amidst to my busy schedule in juggling between various tasks and taking care of my young children. I find peace and quiet whenever I bake, like how meditation does for others.

Einkorn wheat was known to be the first wheat plant cultivated during the early days. It's also known to have a richer nutritional than modern wheat varieties and easier to digest. Added black sesame to get the extra nutty flavour and nutrients.
