Inspired by the recipe from the blog: Discovering Sourdough I baked my English Muffins with Feta.

 

Sourdough Starter:

172 g whole wheat flour

212 g water

122 g whole wheat bubbling sourdough

Combine the ingredients in a large mixing, cover and let ferment for 10-12 hours.


 

Final dough:

all of the  sourdough starter

256g water

505 g  whole wheat flour

Mix the ingredients and autolyse for 30-40 minutes. Then add 272 g crumbled feta cheese and work it through the dough.

 

 

Set aside for 40 minutes and knead the dough for 1 minute. Repeat the kneading after 40 minutes. Then let ferment for  4 hours.


Preheat your oven with a baking stone and a steam pan to 450F.Using a rolling pin roll the dough out to 11/4cm (1/2 inch) thickness. Cut the muffins out and place on the baker's peel  lined with parchment paper. Bake for  5-6 minutes each side.

I used a large band from a half gallon mason jar to cut my muffins. I baked 15 muffins.

My lovely husband brought two bottles of Polish beer. He is not an average man who enjoys his time with pals watching games and drinking beer. He said that he was given the beer and  I could make the bread with it. 

So I did. In my opinion the best place for alcohol is in food. I also marinated and baked a leg of lamb with the second bottle of beer.

I have never been a big fan of pears. I eat only a few per year. But when I saw those I decided to buy a few. They were delicious. Their beauty inspired me to bake this bread.

Soaker:
453 g water

283g whole rye flour-stone ground 453 whole wheat flour

 Mix the flours and water until the dough comes together and you have a sticky mass and put the container in the refrigerator for 12 hours  Starter: 125 g water 125 g whole rye flour 25 g whole rye starter
Final dough: all soaker from refrigerator 255 g starter Mix the ingredients (it's not easy) and let rest 30 minutes.
Add salt work it through the dough. Let rest 30 minutes. Fold the dough and let rest 30 minutes. Repeat the procedure once more.
Allow the dough to ferment for 4 hours at room temperature.

Shaping:
Flatten the dough into a disc, put 100 g of pistachio nuts (toasted, salted) and pear cut in to pieces. Fold in each side, and then the bottom. . Turn the dough over and shape your pear. Try to shape thick neck to prevent from burning during baking. Use XL raisin or dried plum to make stem end of the pear. Place the pear on peel with parchment . Cover with plastic to avoid drying the dough. After 3-hour proofing preheat the oven to 500F with a.baking stone. Prepare 1 cup of  hot water for steaming.Score the loaf.
Bake:
15 minutes-480 F
15 minutes -450F
Remove  the parchment, cover the bread with foil (it's brown enough) and bake 10 minutes in 400F.

Hello Everybody!

My name is Anna and I live with my husband and my two sourdoughs - Rye and Wheat-in NY. I was born in Poland. I started baking 3 years ago. I started from the no-knead breads. In 2009 I made my starters and till today I use them to  bake our daily breads. My baking is experimental, intuitive and personal. Recipes are inspiration for me but I rarely follow them. 11 monthes ago I started posting about my bread baking on my blog BOCHENKOWO (Bochenek means loaf in Polish). I had  posted in Polish but few days I decided to start posting in English. 

http://bochenkowo.blogspot.com/

 Here is my first recipe in English:

 

Soaker: 

219 g whole - wheat flour

200 g  boiling water

53 g golden roasted flax seeds

6 g salt

 

Sourdough:

130 g whole- rye flour

122 g whole-wheat flour

123 g organic spelt  flour (whole grain)

250 g  water

35 g  mature sourdough  starter (wheat)*

45 g mature sourdough  starter (rye)*. 

*My  both sourdough starters are whole grain.

Mix all ingredients for the soaker and sourdough it for 10 hours at room temperature.


Final dough :

424 g whole- rye flour

340 g whole- wheat flour

509 g  organic spelt  flour (whole grain)

900 g of water

soudough

soaker

24 g of salt

Disperse the soaker and sourdough in the water. Add the flours (without the salt), Knead by hand until it is thoroughly combined and all the flour is hydrated. Let the mixture sit for  30 minutes.

Add the salt and knead the dough until all of the salt is incorporated.Cover the mixing bowl with plastic bag and let  the dough rest for 60 minutes.

Knead again and divide the dough into two equal pieces. Ferment the dough for 3 hours.

Preheat oven (with a baking  stone) to 500 F.

Place the shaped loaves in oiled loaf pans (2-3) and cover with damp cloth. Score the loaves and put them in the oven.

 Bake  for 10 minutes , then  turn down the temperature in the oven to 450 F. Bake for another 10 minutes, remove  loaves from the pans and place them on the stone. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove the loaves from the oven and let them cool completely on a wire rack before cutting into.
