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.

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.

8 a.m. mix your dough and let it rise.
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.

Sourdough Bread with Merlot and Cabernet grapes flour

I can’t believe that another year has passed and it’s again October 16th. That means people all around the world are baking bread. I have started submitting my breads in 2009. Or 2010… I don’t even remember when exactly but it became the tradition. The rules are simple: you bake on October 16th and submit your result to Zorra.
World Bread Day, October 16, 2018
In the love of the bread baking and for  World Baking Day I made this year two sourdough loaves but one came out not so perfect and I wouldn’t show it. Another is also not perfect but at least worth talking about it. Because it’s made with wine flour!

Processed with VSCO with  preset

However don’t get too excited. You will get only smell and a little bit more sour and rich taste than usual sourdough but no booze. And of course benefits of using the grapes flour: antioxidants and vitamins. Well, I hope so…))

Why I made it then? Because it’s fun and challenge! Even a small amount of wine flour changes structure and behavior of the dough. And it’s interesting to make something that different in color from traditional wheat or rye. And it is TASTY! I smell a hint of chocolate. This bread is very delicious with cheese, especially blue cheese.
The recipes for two breads below are very similar in ingredients and methods.  The small difference is in quantity of the wine flour. I found out that you need a little bit bigger amount of Cabernet flour to achieve the rich and beautiful color.

Cabernet Grapes Flour Bread

Processed with VSCO with  preset

Ingredients for one loaf

For the levain:
30 grams active 100 percent hydration starter
54 grams bread flour
6 grams rye whole flour
60grams water @76-78°F (24-25°C)

For the Final Dough:

240 grams of bread flour
60 grams Cabernet grapes flour
240 grams warm water
60 grams of the levain
6 grams salt
Some rice flour for dusting

Instructions
– In the morning prepare your levain by mixing the starter, water,  bread and rye flours. Cover with a plastic wrap, and let it sit for 6 hours in a warm spot. Desired room temperature is 74-78°F (23-25.5°C).
– One hour prior mixing the dough, mix by hand the bread and Cabernet grape flours with water and let this mixture stay in a warm spot in your kitchen for about 60 minutes.
– Add 60 grams of the levain to the flour mixture and mix them till levain incorporates well into the dough.
– Let dough stay for 30 minutes and perform stretches and folds of the dough over itself. Cover and let it rest in a warm spot for 30 minutes.
– Sprinkle the salt over the dough. Mix it by hand, pinching the dough to dissolve the salt, and stretching and folding the dough over itself. Cover and let it rest in a warm spot for 30 minutes.

– Perform lamination*: sprinkle your working surface with some water and stretch the dough into rectangular. The dough thickness should be approximately 1/8 inch. Fold 1/3 of the dough to the center and cover it with the remaining third. Roll it into a ball starting from the top. Cover and let it rest in a warm spot for 30 minutes.

– Perform stretching and folding  four times with a wet hand every 30 minutes. Then cover the dough and let it rise for 90 minutes untouched.

-Shape the dough into a boule by gently folding the dough over itself from all “sides”. Flip the shaped dough over so that the seam side is on the counter. Using a bench scraper, draw the loaf toward you, and then away from you, to tighten up the top of the dough. Cover the boule with a towel and let it rest for 15 minutes. In the meantime, dust a banneton or towel lined bowl with a rice flour.

– After 15 minutes, flip the dough over and reshape the loaf one more time. Place the shaped dough into the banneton seam side up.  Cover with an oiled plastic wrap.

– Place the shaped loaf in the refrigerator for up to 12 hours (or you can let the dough rise for 90 minutes more and bake the same day).
– About 30 minutes before baking, place a Dutch oven in the oven and preheat it to 500°F(260°C). Remove your loaf from the refrigerator.

Processed with VSCO with  preset

– When ready to bake, pull the Dutch oven out of your oven and transfer the loaf to the hot pan. Carefully return the hot lid to the pan, and place it in the oven and immediately reduce the oven temperature to 450°F(232°C).
– Bake for 10 minutes @500°F (260°C), lower the temperature and bake for 20 minutes @450°F (232°C), remove the lid and bake for approximately 10 minutes more until the crust is deep brown.

– Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

Serve with cheese and wine or with butter and jam.

Chestnut Bread

When chestnut are in season, I buy them at the farmers market, roast in the oven, peel and them add to dishes. They are delicious in soups, stews, stuffing and in breads. This recipe is one of my favorite fall breads.

DSC_6910

Levain
200g mature wheat sourdough starter, 100% hydration
125ml warm water (32C)
½ tbsp. honey
50г wheat bread flour
70г dark rye flour

Final dough
all the levain
125ml warm water (32C)
490g wheat bread flour
245g chestnut puree*
90g walnuts
15g see salt

chestnut bread

Method

– In a stand mixer dissolve the sourdough starter in the water. Add honey, rye and wheat flours. Cover and let stand overnight in room temperature (24C) for 8-10 hours
– next morning. Add waterand flour to the levain. Let stand for 20 minutes then mix on low speed with the dough hook attachment for 5-7 minutes until dough cleans the bowl and is smooth and elastic. Add chestnut puree and walnuts. Mix for a couple more minutes. Take the dough on the work surface and knead it on the oiled surface for 10seconds, ending with the dough in a smooth, round ball.
-proof at room temperature: place the dough in the bowl, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave for 2 – 2.5 hours.
– bench rest: Lightly flour the work surface, shape dough into a round, cover with inverted bowl or moist towel, and let rest for 20 minutes.
-flour a linen-lined banneton. Shape the dough into a boule or baton. Place it seam up down in the banneton. Wrap loosely but well with plastic wrap. Let the dough proof for 1 to 1.5 hrs until almost doubled in height.
– meanwhile, preheat the oven, with baking stone, to 235°C (450°F).
– upturn the loaf onto a semolina-dusted baking peal. Using a sharp blade, slash the loaf diagonally two or three times. Bake for 15 minutes with steam, and another 25-30 minutes or so without steam until it is richly browned and sounds hollow when it’s thumped on the bottom. Let the bread cool on a rack.

*to make chestnut puree, combine 170g of roasted chestnuts and 80g water in food processor and puree until the mixture is smooth and has the consistency of a thick spread.

Tartine Basic Country Bread Recipe

In love of bread baking and for World Baking Day

Tartine Basic Country Bread Recipe

DSC_6861
Ingredients for 2 loaves
For the Starter:
1 tablespoon active 100 percent hydration starter
200 grams warm water
100 grams all purpose flour
100 grams whole wheat flour
For the Final Dough:
200 grams of the starter
700 grams warm water
900 grams of bread flour
100 grams whole wheat flour
20 grams salt
50/50 mixture of whole wheat and rice flour for dusting

DSC_6865
Instructions
– The night before you mix the dough, prepare your levain by mixing the starter, water, and flours. Cover with plastic wrap, and let sit overnight.
– To make the final dough, in a large bowl, add 200 grams of the starter, 650 grams of the warm water, and the flours. Mix by hand until incorporated, cover, and let rest in a warm spot in your kitchen for about 30 to 40 minutes.
– Sprinkle the salt over the dough and sprinkle with the rest of the water. Mix by hand, pinching the dough to dissolve the salt, and stretching and folding the dough over itself. Cover and let it rest in a warm spot for 30 minutes.
– Let rise for 3 hours, stretching and folding with a wet hand every 30 minutes, until the dough is buoyant and aerated.
– Using a dough scraper, gently coax the dough out of the bowl onto an unfloured work surface. Lightly flour the top of the dough, and divide it in half with a bench scraper. With the bench scraper, flip the dough pieces so that the floured side is on the bottom.
– Shape the dough pieces into boules by gently folding the dough over itself from all “sides.” Flip the shaped dough over so that the seam side is on the counter. Using a bench scraper, draw the loaf toward you, and then away from you, to tighten up the top of the dough. Cover each piece with a towel and let rest for 10 minutes. In the meantime, dust two bannetons or towel lined bowls with a 50-50 mixture of wheat and rice flour.
– After the 10 minutes, flip the dough over, and reshape the loaf one more time. Flip the loaf back over, seam side down, and place the bench scraper under the shaped loaf. Push it around from all four sides against the work surface to create tension and tighten up the loaf. Place the shaped dough into the banneton, seam side up. Pinch the seam a few times to make sure it stays closed. Cover with oiled plastic wrap.
– You can either let the loaves rise at room temperature for 2 to 4 hours, until puffy, and then bake. Alternatively, you can place the shaped loaves in the refrigerator for up to 12 hours for a more sour flavor.
– About 30 minutes before baking, place a Dutch oven in the oven and preheat it to 500 degrees F. Remove your loaf from the refrigerator.
– When ready to bake, pull the Dutch oven out of your oven and, using this method, transfer the loaf to the hot pan. Carefully return the hot lid to the pan, and place it in the oven, and immediately reduce the oven temperature to 450 degrees F.
– Bake for 30 minutes, remove the lid, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes more, until the interior of the loaf reaches about 205 degrees F, and the crust is a deep brown. Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
Repeat with the second loaf.
