Carrot Bread Two Ways
I had made a tasty carrot bread with spices before and wanted to do the same, but this time I thought I'd make two separate doughs and laminate them together. I did one white dough autolysed with carrot juice and a mostly whole grain dough autolysed with water. After autolyse, I added about 100g of shredded carrot to the carrot dough.
I added cumin/chipotle powder/coriander to one loaf during lamination and I added raisins and toasted walnuts to the other.
These loaves didn't look like much after the bake and I was disappointed, but I'm very happy with the crumb and taste. I think this is one of the better breads I've made given that it's about 40% whole grain. The crumb is extremely soft!
20% starter (or 10% pre-fermented flour)
Started hydration at 80% and added a bit of water along the way
