Ginger & Spice Sourdough Loaf

Starter 125g
Plain flour 125g
Strong white flour 125g
Milk 150g
Yoghurt 50g
Butter 15g
Honey 1 tbsp
Sugar 1 tsp
Salt 4g
Mixed spices 1/2 tsp
Crystallised ginger (chopped into small pieces) 50g

Maybe because of all the sales emails I get or the Christmas lights in town, I've started to feel I want to add some festive touch to my baking too. I added my favourite fiery aromatic root veg, ginger, and mixed spices to my loaf.

And bang! Even before baking the loaf, the kitchen smelt like Christmas! Love it. ;D

Adding plain flour made the crumb soft and bit more on the cake side. The spices came through even more when I toasted it. I think other dried fruits will work too... (hum.., maybe rum soaked dried fruits next time...;)
