Strongbow honey apple cider and apple bread
HI Fresh loafers!!!
It has been AGESSSSSSS since my last post. I have been baking of coz and practicing what ive learnt in the state. I can finally getting comfortable baking at home. But since the temp and my laziness to my sourdough feeding my fermentation time isnt anywhere close to accurate at all.
For this bread its simple:
40& Liquid Levain (100% hydration, half strongbow and half water) I let it ferment in my room temp for 8-9 hours (sweet smell and taste sweet as well)
70% hydration (half strongbow and half water)
25% WW flour (didnt use special flour as its would be covered by the apple taste)
75% White bread flour
25% dried apple (rehydrated till its soften and moist)
Roughly mix the dough by hand transfer to an oiled container
3 fold : 40 mins each add apple at the first fold
let it ferment for another hour
divide, pre-shape and rest for 20-30mins
Final shape and proof in the fridge for 6 hours.
remove from fridge and proof at room temp for another 2 hours.
Hit the oven and bake with a dutch oven.
20min covered and 25min uncovered.
This is a very good to have on its own, accompany with soup or even spread with honey ^^ Bon Appetite
