light, soft, flavorful bread with just enough wholemeal to entice even those who usually turn away from brown bread.
250g white flour (No.4)
250g stoneground wholemeal flour (706)
200g sourdough starter 100% hydration
10g maldon sea salt
Refresh your starter the night before with 50g starter, 100g flour, 100ml water.
Following morning: reserve 50g of the ripe starter for the next bake ( I usually keep mine in the fridge between my weekly bread baking)
Mix the remaining 200g starter with the 2 types of flour and water. Leave to develop for 20-40 minutes (= autolyse)
Add the salt and knead for 3-4 minutes (I tend not to knead too long with the wholemeal flour for fear of the sharp bran cutting the gluten strands)
Leave to bulk for 4 hours with 2-3 folds every half hour.
Bench rest then shape and place in the banneton
2 hours fermentation
then Oven 240°C for 20 minutes followed by 210°C for 35 minutes.
Wait half an hour if you can before slicing then enjoy!
