Sorry no crumb shot as this was a gift.
It looks quite nice and since we eat first with our eyes, it must taste good.
What is the formula you used?
is as follows:
125g leaven at 100% hydration
400g KA bread flour
100g whole wheat flour-fresh milled
10g salt added after autolyse
400g water-50g reserved for autolyse
91% Hydration! Holy moly. Makes the tightness even more impressive. Bet that was fun to work with.
its a very wet dough. I bake it in a cast iron dutch oven which really helps it hold its shape and not spread out. Depending on the weather conditions it can be necessary to add a little more flour.
back at my formula I see an error. I typically use 300 grams of water. Sorry for the error
It look really very tasty!
It looks really very tasty!
for 25% WW bread - about 4% higher than I would use, but the 64% with 100 g less water seems way too dry if not in the UK using weak flour? Looks more like one of my 78%'ers and the gifted has to be happy as any kind if pie! Well done and happy baking ricman!
