It seems that there’re not a lot of sourdough recipes on TFL that involve peanuts. In an attempt to change that, I tossed some peanuts into the dough…
Black Peppercorn Peanut Cranberry 50% Sprouted Kamut SD
Dough flour (all freshly milled):
150g 50% Sprouted kamut flour
90g 30% White wheat flour
60g 20% Whole durum flour
5g 1.67% Starter
20g 6.67% Bran sifted out from dough flour
20g 6.67% Water
280g 93.3% Dough flour excluding bran for leaven
170g 56.7% Water
100g 33.3% Whey
45g 15% Leaven
9g 3% Vital wheat gluten
5g 1.67% Salt
30g 10% Toasted skin-on peanuts
21g 7% Dried cranberries
3g 1% Toasted whole black peppercorn
302.5g 100% Whole grain
292.5g 96.7% Total hydration
Sift out the coarse bran from the dough flour, reserve 20g for leaven. Soak the rest, if any, in equal amount of whey taken from dough ingredients.
Soak the cranberries in a little hot water to re-hydrate. Set aside until needed.
Combine all leaven ingredients and let sit until doubled, around 3 hours.
Roughly combine all dough ingredients except for the salt and leaven, autolyse for 20 minutes. Knead in the reserved ingredients than ferment for 15 minutes. Fold in the add-ins and ferment for 2 hours 45 minutes longer.
Preshape the dough then let it rest for 15 minutes. Shape the dough and put in into a banneton. Retard for 12 hours.
Preheat the oven at 250°C/482°F. Take the dough out of the fridge and let it warm up for 20 minutes at room temperature.
Score and spritz the dough then bake at 250°C/482°F with steam for 15 minutes then without steam for 25 minutes more or until the internal temperature reaches a minimum of 208°F. Let cool for at least 2 hours before slicing.
The dough sprang pretty well in the oven. It didn’t spread much but I think it was owed to the relatively low hydration rather than proper shaping :)
If you’re like me, who complain that cracked black peppers could hardly be detected in bread, you have to try using whole peppercorn. The pop of spiciness is so stimulative!
This bread has well-balanced flavor: sprouted kamut produces a very sweet crumb, cranberries give some tanginess, toasted peanuts are toasty and savory, while the black peppers add hotness.
