Good option for those who want a tastier healthier bread
250g Wholemeal sourdough starter
300g White wheat flour
150g Wholerye flour
50g Wholemeal flour
-Used a bubbly and active starter.
-Whisk the water, the starter and the honey in a large bowl.
-Add all the flours and knead for 10min.
-Leave the dough to rest for 10min inside the bowl.
-Add the salt and knead again for 10min.
-Leave the dough to rest again for 30min.
-Remove the dough from the bowl and strech and fold the dough every 15 min for an hour. To do that gather a portion of the dough from the outside and pull towards the middle. Turn the bowl and do it again until you complete the whole circle.
-Once finish leave the dough inside the fridge for 24hours.
-The day after remove the dough from the fridge 2-3 hours before bake.
-After just an hour, shape the loaf and transfer it to a proving basket.
-Pre-heat the oven (maximum temperature) for at least an hour, with a cast iron pot inside if you have one.
-My oven is not htat great so what i do is the following: after an hour to the maximum temperature I spray some water inside, I switch off the oven and I insert the loaf in to the cast iron pot. I spray water every 3min during 15min (opening the oven door the minimum as possible to avoid loose the heat inside). After those 15min I switch on the oven again at 200C for 10min and after another 30min at 180C.
-Remove from the oven and leave it to cool at least for 3hours.
