Multigrain Sourdough Mini MIche
I wasn’t planning on making such a large loaf, but it turned out to be just over 1 kg, I guess that doesn’t qualify it as being a miche, I’ll call it a mini miche 😎. It was with this bake that I noticed how extremely sluggish my starter had become, it’s now in starter rehab on a diet of whole rye and bubbling along quite nicely.
This loaf is 83% hydration and a blend of whole spelt, whole red fife, whole rye, bread flour, sesame seeds and chia seeds. Despite the slow fermentation I think it somehow went a bit over as evidenced by the flat profile and lack of bloom and ears. Fortunately the flavor is spot on. My partner arrived home soon after the loaf was out of the oven and remarked a bout how amazing it smelled. I will need to try making this again when my starter is back up and running more vigorously.
