Maurizio's Sunflower and Sesame Sourdough Bread
Hello fellow bakers,
Today I baked Maurizio's Sunflower and Sesame Sourdough Bread, where I also added some spelt flour and DW's favorite, pumpkin seeds, to the recipe.
As a new baker, I was excited to try baking my first seeded loaf. And I couldn't be happier with how tasty this came out! DW and kids thought this was the best tasting sourdough bread yet.
Thanks to Maurizio Leo for his recipe that inspired me to bake this!
Below: after bulk fermentation, divided (not so evenly, oops), and shaped in bannetons for final proofing (cold retardation).
Below: baked and on rack to cool; doesn't seem to have quite the rise and oven spring I was hoping for
Below: crumb was more fluffy and airy than I had hoped!
