RHEINBROT – My Choice for July bake with BBB

For July bake I had quite a few options but have chosen this recipe because of Riesling. Well, if you know me, you know that I cook with wine, I bake with wine, I bake with wine flour as well. Here was a perfect opportunity to try a new recipe and also use Riesling flour I have on hands. I based my dough on Cathy’s numbers, just added a little bit of wine flour. As usually, wine flour changes the crumb color and gives additional sourness to sourdough, as well as rich and complex taste. It’s particularly great grilled and eaten warm with butter.
Below is copy of Cathy’e recipe and my notes at the end.

Rheinbrot – A Taste of July with the BBB

DSC_3230
Rheinbrot is made with an overnight sponge of Reisling, sourdough, flour and water. This version includes spelt and emmer in the final dough.
Author: Bread Experience
Recipe type: Sourdough Loaf
Cuisine: Bread
Serves: 1 Medium Loaf
Ingredients
Sponge:
72 grams sweet Riesling (or other white wine of your choice)
72 grams boiled water, at room temperature
143 grams white bread flour
72 grams sourdough at 100% hydration
Dough:
207 grams white bread flour
95 grams whole grain spelt flour
55 grams whole grain emmer flour
190 – 225 grams water, divided
8 grams salt
Instructions
1. Mix wine with water and add the sourdough, whisk thoroughly. Add flour and mix again.
2. The dough ferments at 2 stages:
3 hours at a temperature 70-75°F, it should grow at least twice its size, will be lumpy looking at this stage and have larger and smaller bubbles.
3. Pour the sponge in a bowl and whisk thoroughly to remove all the gas out of it and fill it with oxygen. Cover and let sit for 10-12 hours (overnight) at room temperature. Dough will rise again in half and very often shows smaller bubbles.
4. Now the sponge is ready for kneading: pour in the water and stir until smooth. Add the flour, mix well and give the autolysis a chance to do it’s magic for 40-50 minutes. I added more water due to the whole grains, but depending on the type of flour used, you may not need additional water.
5. Add the salt and quickly knead the dough, if it is too sticky add a little four, but be careful not to add too much. You may also need to add a little bit of water to dissolve the salt.
6. Let ferment for 2-2.5 hours. Fold twice after 1 hour and 1½ hour.
7. Form a loaf and let proof in a basket for 1½ hours (until doubled in size) covered with a towel in a draft free place.
8. Preheat oven to 450°F with a baking stone on the middle rack.
9. Gently flip the loaf over to a piece of parchment paper. Score the loaf in the pattern of your choice, add a stencil design if you like, and transfer it to your preheated baking stone.
10. Spritz the loaf with water and bake at 450°F for 10 minutes. Spritz with water 2 more times at 30-second intervals, then lower the temperature to 400°F. and continue baking for an additional 20 minutes.
11. Let the loaf cool down for at least half an hour before slicing and eating.
Notes
The formula for this winey loaf was translated from this forum (http://homopistorius.livejournal.com/1029.html) where the chemics of wine and bread baking are discussed.

My notes:

I used for final dough 320g og bread flour and 37g og Riesling flour.

I bake in Dutch oven since it’s the only way not to burn crust in my horrible oven.

Rosemary Raisin Sourdough Bread

Bread Baking Babes are baking Rosemary Raisin Sourdough Bread in June.
This month I wasn’t wating too long to join the group and baked it last Friday.
Very easy recipe to follow, pleasant playful dough and great results!
As usually, below is the copy of Judy’s recipe with my notes at the end.

Rosemary Raisin Sourdough Bread

Processed with VSCO with  preset

(Recipe can be halved or doubled)
Ingridients
28 oz bread flour
8 oz whole grain flour*
1 oz Kosher salt
2 tsp. active dry yeast
2 oz honey
4 oz olive oil
4 oz golden raisins**
1/8 cup chopped fresh rosemary (or to taste)
16 oz sourdough starter (100% hydration)
16 oz room-temperature water

Instructions

  • Blend dry ingredients in mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix until just combined into a shaggy dough. Cover with a towel and let mixture rest for 10  minutes.
  • Using a dough hook, knead dough for about 10 minutes, until it is smooth and pulls away from the side of the bowl. Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place for 1 ½ to 2 hours, or until doubled.
  • Remove risen dough from bowl, shape as desired, place on baking sheet, cover, and let rise for 30-45 minutes.
  • About 20 minutes before baking, heat oven to 500˚F. Bake at 500˚F for 10 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 425˚F and continue baking until top is brown and the internal temperature is between 190-200˚F, about 15-20 minutes. Watch the bread carefully so it doesn’t get too dark (adjust oven temperature accordingly).

My notes: I baked half of the portion and added ~ 50ml more water.

* I used emmer flour.

** used dried wild blueberries instead of raisins. Love the combination of them with rosemary.

 

Multigrain Sourdough Sandwich Bread

In May Bread Baking Babes were baking Multigrain Sourdough Sandwich Bread by Karen.
I was almost a month late (preparation for our vacations, then vacations, then very busy at work after vacations) but I also was waiting for my daughter to taste it. She really loves sandwich style breads. She was in Bay Area for Father’s day weekend and here you go!
I don’t have 9″ inch baking form, only 8″ so it’s tall. Bread has wonderful aroma (multigrane mix) and very soft crumb. Taste is amazing! Bread is great for sandwiches and toasts.
Here is the copy of Karen’s recipe with my notes at the end.

4 p.m. Shape the dough and let it rise
5 or 6 p.m. bake your loaf.

Alternative timeline (plus or minus depending on the weather):
Day one:
Feed your starter and let it sit, covered, at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours.
Day two:
8 p.m. mix your dough and let it rise
6 a.m. shape the dough and let it rise
7 or 8 a.m. bake your loaf.

Ingridients
For the Dough
50 grams (1/4 cup) bubbly 100% hydration sourdough starter
300 grams (1 1/4 cups) warm water
20 grams (1 tablespoon) honey
45 grams (3 tablespoons) melted coconut oil*
50 grams (1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon) whole wheat flour
450 grams (3 3/4 cups) bread flour
9 grams (1 1/2 teaspoons) fine sea salt

For the Multigrain Soaker
70 grams (1/2 cup) King Arthur Flour Harvest Grains Blend or Bob’s Red Mill 10 Grain Cereal, or another mixture of grains and seeds**
240 grams (1 cup) hot water
Rolled oats for topping the loaf (optional)

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, mix the starter, water, honey, and oil with a dough whisk or fork. Add the flours and salt.
  • Mix the dough by hand in the bowl to form a shaggy dough. Cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes.
  • While the dough is resting, mix the multigrains and hot water in a separate bowl and let rest. Drain thoroughly before using.
  • Add the multigrains to the dough and knead to incorporate. The dough will be pretty wet at first but will begin to come together. Don’t add more flour!
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a damp towel and let rise until doubled, about 6 to 8 hours***.
  • Place the dough onto a lightly oiled surface and press it out to a rectangle. Roll the dough into a log and place it into an oiled 9 inch by 5 inch loaf pan, seam side down. Cover loosely with oiled plastic wrap and let rest until the dough has crested one inch above the rim of the pan, 1 to 2 hours.
  • Heat your oven to 450 degrees F.
  • If you want to top the bread with rolled oats, brush the loaf with water and press in some oats.
  • Place the loaf on the center rack and reduce the temperature to 400 degrees F. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until it reaches an internal temperature of 190 to 195 degrees F. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then turn it out to a wire rack to cool completely.

My notes:

*used  avocado oil

** used combinations of flax seeds and seasame seeds.

*** I fed my starter night before baking, in the morning mixed the dough and left it for bulk fermentation while I was at work. After I came home, 7 hours later it was fully developed, I shaped it and it took one more hour for final proof. Baked it and let to cool overnight. Sliced in the morning.

Ингредиенты
Тесто
50г свежеподкормленной закваски 100% влажности
300г тёплой воды grams
20г мёда
45г растопленного кокосового масла*
50г цельнозерновой муки
450г хлебной муки
9г морской соли

Для мочки
70г смеси зёрен или семян (кунжут, тыквенные, подсолнечника)
240г горячей воды
Овсяные хлопья для посыпки (факультативно)

Приготовление
В большой миске смешайте закваску, воду, мёд и масло. Добавьте муку. Хорошо размешайте, но не вымешиваёте, просто смешайте до неоднородной массы. Прикройте и дайте постоять минут 30.
В это время приготовьте мочку в другой ёмкости и дайте немного постоять. Процедите перед добaвкой в тесто.
Добавьте мочку  и соль в тесто и замесите тесто. Вначале оно будет очень влажным, не добавляёте муку! Постепенно тесто вымесится. Прикройте миску с тестом плёнкой и оставьте подходить на 6-8 часов или пока не удвоится в размере. Время зависит от температуры воздуха, времени года и силы вашей закваски.
Подошедшее тесто поместите на рабочей поверхности стола и раскатайте в прямоугольник. Скрутите в рулет и выложите в смазанную маслом форму для выпечки хлеба (размер 22.5см х 12.5см) швом вниз. Прикройте плёнкой и дайте подойти на 2.5 см выше уровня формы. На это может уйти от одного до двух часов.
Нагрейте духовку до 450F (232С).
При желании посыпьте сверху овсяными хлопьями. Для это сбрызните хлеб водой и вдавите немного хлопьев. ( Я это делала перед расстойкой).
Поместите форму в духовку в цент и уменьшите температуру до 400 F(205 С) . Выпекайте минут 50-60 пока хлеб не достигнет внутренней температуры 88 С -90 С. Остудите минут 10 в форме, потом выньте буханку из неё и остудите на решётке.
Мои примечания
*использовала масло авокадо
**использовала смесь льяноного семени и семян кунжута
*** освежила закваску накануне ночью, утром перед работой замесила тесто и оставила его подходить в кухне. Сейчас довольно жарко, вернулась через 7 часов, сформовала и поставила на окончательную расстойку, на которую ушло около часа. Испекла хлеб и оставила остывать ночь. Разрезали утром.
