Both dinner plans and a fall feeling were in the air, so I prepared a loaf to encapsulate the autumn crispness and colors I was feeling. My fall flavors came from toasted pecans, cranberries and maple mashed goat cheese. If you’re a Pittsburgher, might I suggest Clarion River Organics for your local chevre supply?

*For the pre-dough: Combine the ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl until a dough forms. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside for at least 8 hours.
Time to mash the maple and goat cheese…
(It’s ok to take a little nibble to make sure the mix tastes appropriately like fall)
The maple chevre really added a flavorful moisture to each slice. I was quite pleased with the fall experimentation. This bread would pair wonderfully with a fall flavored soup. Speaking of a fall flavored soup, stay tuned for the aforementioned dinner plans!
