SWISS FLOUR HELP !

Hi everyone :)

I studied to bake a bread for one year and last month i went to Switzerland and bought 2 packages of flour there but I don't know how to cook because there is no english infomation on the packages so i type it all and translate it on google.

here is what i got

ingredients
Wheat flour (semibiancabigia), 14% seeds (linseed, sunflower, sesame), segake flour, oatmeal, salt, dried yeast, wheat gluten, sugar, dried sour dough rye wheat germ, emulsifiers (E322), enzymes (amylase).
Total content of salt: 1.8%

 

preparation:
this mixture already contains the yeast and all the necessary ingredients for a crunchy bread prepro seeds. Just add water and you're done!

 

Recipe: mixing by hand: (vslori indicative):
Mix the contents of the package basin. 3 dl of water (30 c) and work the dough by hand or with the mixer for approx. 8 min. until the dough is elastic. Place the dough in a bowl and let stand for 40 coprore min .. form a single piece or more pieces (round or elongated) and arrange on a pan lined with baking paper. Cover again and let rise for 30-40 minutes .. brush the dough with water and record it with a knife. Bake in preheated oven at 230 C. after about 15 minutes reduce the temperature to 190 C (oven-heated: 170 c)

Cooking time:
1 large bread: approx. 45-50 min.
2 small loaves: approx. 35-45 min.
8 small rolls: approx. 25 min.

Preparation with a bread machine:
Pour into a container the contents of the package, about 3.2 dl of water (30 c) and choose the cooking program.

Store in a cool dry place (not refrigerator). Always replace the pack after opening or store the content in a jar Provista

(I'm sorry for some error spelling)

 

And I wonder if I could create steam when I bake or not and is anyone have a better method of how to cook it?

 

here is the picture of the flour that i bought

 

Thanks...

The baking method seems accurate, because it already has all the ingredients in it, including yeast and salt. 

Yes, you can use steam when you bake this, of course it will result in a harder, crispier crust. 

One tip: follow the dough's actual rising, not the given times, which are probably close but a very general estimation.  Let the dough rise in a large glass container. You want the first rise to just about double, and the 2nd rise after shaping to not quite double...use the "poke test" to determine if the finished, shaped dough is ready. It may take 40 minutes, it may take 30, it may take 50...just pay attention and let the dough tell you when it is ready!

Good luck!

The "segake" flour is rye flour.

Hi,

As far as I understand,

Ruchmehl is the leftover, after the inner part of the grain has been extracted.

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruchmehl

It seems to be simolar to a German Type 1050, something inbetween wholegrain and white flour

I baked it yesterday and it was very very good, a little bit too salty though.

I love this bread !

 

Thanks for every suggestion by the way, does anyone has a recipe of this bread ?

too salty and add a good dose of my favorite regular flour to increase the dough & reduce the salt, adding water as needed.  Pre-mixes are very handy at camp outs.
