Multi Seed Loaf with Rye & Spelt Flour
Since I am still nursing a brand new rye starter to life (finally there with great help from Minioven) I made a bread today with a biga preferment. I have been craving a loaf with seeds coming out of the yingyang so I stuffed this bread full of cracked wheat, steel cut oats and rye berries. I wanted a hearty loaf so I used a combination of bread flour with dark rye and spelt flours.
Never used a biga before so it was a new adventure. Actually, not really. Same as poolish just drier.
Now that I have my rye starter up and running, I will be trying a much anticipated go at a danish rye, packed with rye berries. This loaf today will have to keep me chewing happily till then. Thanks to Franko for the inspiration.
