April Fools Volcano Miche
<sigh> My latest submission to the TFL Rogues' Gallery of Mutant Loaves. What causes such volcanoing? (scores blew out too)
This miche is based on David Snyder's but with 7:2:1 AP:GoldenBuffalo:Spelt and such young levain that I could be had up on child labor charges. Must be Spring Fever: going for young and sweet. 7:2:1 flour + young levain flavor is superb (2% salt). Crumb moist if a bit rubbery -- perhaps will improve w/drying as week winds on.
Possible volcano sources? (1) Insufficient burden of proof: No rise during o/n fridge retard and very little at r/t next AM, though poke held. (2) Oven was 550˚F at start (not my intent - flakey theromostat), but immediately turned down to 450˚F/no convection.
My harshest critic :-) says bake all in one day and forget this overnight retard crap. I second that, but will have to forego the Sat AM lie-in :-(.
