Help! I want to copy this Pacific NW sourdough
I really want to copy a sourdough bread that is made by an instore bakery. The store chain is Haggen's and is located in the Pacific Northwest of the USA. It's their in house sourdough and it is a fantastic bread.
I'm a novice when it comes to bread making but am learning fast. I already have a homemade starter that tastes authentic and good so that hurdle has been taken care of.
The crust has a cool elastic texture and the crumb is moist and pliable with fairly large air pockets. This bread is irresistable and seldom lasts longer than two days in my household.
So far all of my attempts have produced a crumb that is dry and with few air pockets. I've had more luck with the crust and feel that I'm getting close to reproducing what I'm looking for.
Now the details...... The recipe that I'm following is here http://haggen.gsnrecipes.com/Recipes/RecipeFull.aspx?RecipeID=30983&QuickSearch=70&PageNumber=2&Source=search I believe that this is the actual recipe and have followed it to a tee with the exception (in all my attempts) of using the molasses.
I really want to perfect this bread and I'm hoping someone from this community knows of this bread from Haggen's grocery stores, and knows what I will need to do to copy it.
If you need more info please don't hesitate to ask me.......... I'm sure that 99% of all bakers that taste and experience this bread will be extremely satisfied and will make it their favorite as it is mine and my families.
Thanks for taking the time to read this,
