I undertook an experiment today. Same spent grain dough, split and formed into sandwich rolls instead of loaves. I can vacuum seal and freeze the batch individually, thawing for carrot dogs, etc.
I baked these on Sunday and froze them for the coming weeks. We thawed a half for barbecue sandwiches (using soy curls) last night. These may be the best loaves I’ve baked yet.
Today’s chores included a long walk, a trip to the dump, baking more sandwich loaves for the week, making a batch of hummus, and setting up this standing desk converter.
And now we have sandwich bread for the week. Like my breakfast loaves, these have no added oil. Except for possibly the top crust, they are also free of problem ingredients for Andrea so she can enjoy them too.

Another success, making the dough for our pizzas without oil this time. Consensus was the dough was even better; crispy, chewy, great flavor.
First experiment baking with aquafaba was a huge success. Crust is light and crunchy, texture is airy, flavor is great. Also, I love the color of these finished loaves. My only problem is keeping myself from eating them both right now.
Into the form they go for a second proof while the oven heats up. Happy with the first rise, optimistic these will turn out well with the changes to the recipe.
I have been changing my spent grain recipe almost from the start. First I tweaked to replace the milk with beer and oil. For this batch, I dropped the oil and egg replacing them aquafaba. Texture while kneading was great and first rise is going well.
