Walnut bread from Korea
I'm a Korean home baker with 4years baking experience.
In most of Korean bakeries, they make some cakes and pies and sweet breads. Hard rolls are not popular here.
You can find some baguette. However, the baguette is not pure sometimes. They add milk, cheese, butter, sugar, etc.
When I traveled European countries, I tasted some really nice breads and I decided to make something like it by myself.
I studied from this website and some books.
This is the latest version of my study - my daily bread.
- Whole wheat flour 400g
- Water 850g
- Pressed oat 100g
- Molt 1g (1tea spoon)
- Instant dry yeast 15g
- Sea salt 17g
Mix them all, cover with plastic wrap and leave in room temperature for 30minute.
- Bread flour 800g
- Walnut 200g - pieced as you like
- Grape seed oil 200g
Carefully take out the dough from the bowl on lightly oiled work place. Stretch and fold 4 sides of the dough and put it back to the oiled bowl. Cover and wait for 10 minute.
Take out and fold 3 more times with 10 minute interval as described above.
Let the dough rise double of its original size in room temperature. Divide dough and make two big loaves.
Cover with cloth and let rise for 45 minute at room temperature. Bake at 230oC preheated oven 45 minute. I put one cup of boiled water in a bowl of preheated gravel to generate steam.
The final result is as above. Please advise me if I have something to improve.
