No sifting bran, no autolyse, turned out way better than I thought, fluffy and even crumb not dense at all😋

New experiment. Soaked chickpea coarsely blitzed in a food processor, fermented with some starter for 20 hours before making the dough.

Just rye and sunflower seed, to go with the smoked salmon we got this weekend 

About 85-87% hydration 

Very simple bread

I want to get a perfectly square bread pan for just rye bread but this pan is a no brainer when it comes to proofing rye.

850g of dough, risen all the way up to the rim and bake, always right and never collapsed!

Made with 350g of non alcoholic cider, dates, cranberries and apricots, kamut and whole wheat for a sweet but slightly hearty loaf. Shaping was bad, I knew it wasn't quite tight enough but rushed it in the banneton anyway while preparing dinner. Taste is heavenly, insanely fruity and soft. 

Few days before this bake, I almost kill Otis's (my starter's)entire family, had 2 batches of prefermemt in the oven with light on, and then I had to use the oven to roast some veggies, well you can guess what happened next. Luckily I had exactly 20g of stater left in the fridge, and made a few bakes after the revival. 

My favorite 50% whole einkorn and another batch of burger buns. Otis had a strong comeback.

Sweet, soft crumb, slightly tangy, with a fruity, citrusy aroma both from the earl grey tea leaf and the lime zest.

I've been craving French toast and wanted something special instead of plain ol white sourdough. This is gonna do it if we don't kill it before it's stale enough for French toast..
