No Knead Sourdough
Finally found it! A way to incorporate good sourdough flavor with the ease of no-knead! :-) Unfortunately, we ate up a lot of this loaf before discovering that the photo was too big to upload- maybe I'll have it figured out by the next loaf. It has good crumb, a lot of natural splitting on top, and great taste, and sooo easy!!
Basing off a "Simple No-Knead Bread" recipe using 6 1/2 C AP flour, baked in a Dutch Oven, here are my variations and success!!
Mix together and let sit for 1/2 hour:
1 C whole wheat sour dough, mature
1 C white sour dough- mature
2 1/2 C water- room temp.
1 Tb. instant bread yeast
Then stir in vigorously:
1 C rye flour - freshly ground, coarse
1 C hard winter white wheat - freshly ground
1/2 C hard red winter wheat - freshly ground
1 1/2 Tb. kosher salt
1/4 C sesame seeds
1/4 C flax seeds
Then mix in up to 4 C AP flour until the dough is thoroughly mixed and thick.
Autolyse 1/2 hour, Mix again for several minutes
Turn into a large plastic box, cover lightly, let rise 2 hours, S&F,
let rise 45 minutes while preheating the oven with Dutch Oven inside with lid on.
Dump dough into DO, bake 30 min. lid on, 33 min. lid off
Let cool at least an hour before cutting.
