Whole Wheat Anise-infused Apple Sour Bread
Wholewheat Anise-infused Apple Sour bread
Started as the all-white flour Apple Sour bread from the Cordon Bleu Professionals Baker's guide.
Adapted by fellow Arizonan Stephanie Petersen for whole wheat.
Then tweaked by me.
The "sour" refers to week-old fermented shredded apples, not to the flavor.
The texture is moist, the smell and flavor are woodsy with a light background of anise. The apples are inperceptably in the background.
Ingredients: whole wheat, grated apple, organic apple sauce, anise, water, salt, sugar, honey, yeast.
Note that this bread contains only 1/16t of yeast, most of the rise is by fermented apples.
