Wholemeal enriched with rye and boosted by a sourdough starter

Whilst making wholemeal loaves I have been experimenting with adding a couple of ladles of wheat sourdough starter to the mix, along with the usual dried active yeast. The sourdough starter enhances the flavour and helps things to rise a bit more. Adding the sourdough starter adds a bit of extra water to the recipe and so this version has added 100 grams of Dark Rye Flour to absorb that extra water and to add to the flavour. The addition of 100 grams of seeded white flour also helps lighten the texture. The following recipe aims to produce two moist and tasty loaves.

Wholemeal sourdough bread with millet seed

Millet seed isn’t just for the birds, it also makes a delicious addition to sourdough wholemeal bread. My grandchildren love this bread as it breaks easily into pieces that they can snack on while waiting for dinner! It goes well with cheese and olives, and the millet seeds add a bit of a crunch to the texture. Sourdough starter is so good for flavour and the slow fermentation helps to break down gluten, so it’s great for those with gluten sensitivity. I love to use the more traditional varieties of wheat flour to make this bread as the nutritional value is enhanced as well as great flavour. Sometimes I substitute about 20% of the wheat flour with spelt or rye. It’s a bit more crumbly but my family love it with cheese. I use the sour dough starter in my bread maker, and check on the consistency as the dough is mixing. I always add some dried yeast as it gives a better rise in the bread maker, but if making by hand then I just use the sour dough starter for the rise.

Sourdough Multi-seed 100% Rye Bread

This is a lovely, rich flavoured bread. I adapted two excellent recipes to develop the recipe - one from the internet (link:https://www.seitanismymotor.com/2010/02/100-percent-rye-bread/ ) and the other from "The Extra Virgin Kitchen" by Susan Jane White. It has a more open texture than is usual for a 100% rye bread. It keeps well, and I think the flavour improves with keeping. Toasting it lightly brings out the flavour and it goes well with soft cheese, air dried ham or smoked salmon. My sourdough starter is 5 years old and is yeasty, not particularly sour-smelling. Unless it is very important to you for it to be 100% rye, without any wheat, you could use any sourdough starter. I find feeding the starter the day before using it, and keeping it at room temperature for several hours on the day, makes the bread lighter. This quantity of ingredients makes 2x1kg(2lb) loaves - I halve them and freeze. Have a go, experiment and enjoy!

Odds and Ends Loaves

Sourdough loaves using what I could find in the pantry. Sometimes you don't have time to find something specific but just go with what is there. The bread has just enough malt loaf flour in to give it a soft malty "stickiness" that loves butter. the (unsoaked) pumpernickel gives it an extra bit of crunch. The quantities are about right - worked backwards - the important thing is a soft flexible dough that kneads easily without sticking to the surface. It was a slow rise partly due to the kitchen being a bit cooler than usual, snowing outside!

Three Malts with a hint of rye sourdough

Wondering what to do with a lot of active rye sourdough starter I experimented with using it in combination with Organic Three Malts & Sunflower Brown flour. The following recipe involves preparing a sourdough starter/production sourdough the day before baking the loaves. This recipe combines using natural yeast in the starter with using some active dried yeast when it comes to baking the loaves. This combination helps me produce a couple of loaves with a nice texture and flavour when there’s not enough time to work through all the usual processes needed to produce a ‘pure’ sourdough loaf.

This makes a nutty, flavoursome, well keeping loaf. The recipe makes 2 loaves @ 700g each.

Basic sour dough bread

After many years of prevarication, I finally succumbed to the pull of sour dough! This recipe is very straightforward to make sour dough, the only thing you need is time for proving! This recipe uses the 'sponge' method. This recipe is certainly not mine, it comes from the River Cottage Bread book. If you want a good general introduction to bread making, of all types, this book is a fantastic place to start. This bread takes about 36 hours to make. You will have to make a sour dough 'starter', which, if you have not got one already, needs to be started a week before this recipe. This sounds a lot of time and hassle, but once your starter' is going, it really is no trouble at all. I used the starter recipe from the River Cottage bread book. The starter 'recipe' is included at the bottom of the recipe.

White & Wheat Seeded Sourdough - (overnight cold proving)

This is a variation on the sourdough bread recipe taught at the E5 Bakehouse bread master class in Hackney, London. A very moist dough with a great open crumb and superb crust. Best made using a regular stretch and fold method with wet hands each time, plus a slow overnight proving in the fridge to give the bread its open crumb and depth of flavour. The cold proofing also helps the dough hold its shape while transferring from the bowl via the peel to the oven. (Don’t worry about putting straight into the oven from the fridge. If the oven is at max heat - approx. 250c - then it will spring up beautifully.)

The Menhir Sarrasin - A Breton Buckwheat loaf

Russet red-brown buckwheat loaf made distinctive by the addition of roast buckwheat flour. Bake a dozen and you could build your own Stonehenge. Or Breadhenge. The menhir (standing stone) shape is easily made before the final proof. I love it when your own take on a bread is the latest addition to a chain that extends back into the mists of time. In this case, I was inspired by the Farine blog (http://www.farine-mc.com/2015/05/meet-baker-eric-marche.html) article about Breton-based baker Éric Marché. In the blogpost MC writes about how M.Marché roasts a small percentage of the buckwheat flour in his menhir-shaped loaves. I’ve never been a huge fan of buckwheat bread, but this sounded worth a try. It was. It’s a great idea. Delicious. This is my version of Éric Marché's loaf, using, as a template, Dan Leader’s Buckwheat Bâtard recipe which, apparently, he adapted, in turn, from an Éric Kayser recipe. Anyway, I hope I've done them justice. Alternatively, substitute half the strong bread flour for wholemeal and you'll get a darker loaf more akin to M.Marché's original. Great with cheese or cured meats.

Smoked Cheese and Onion Bread

This is a variation on Richard Bertinet's Bacon and Red onion bread but uses smoked cheese (thus suitable for some vegetarians) and is fortified with sourdough batter. It makes lovely toast and would be great with a hearty soup.

Khorasan Sour Dough Bread

This interesting bread is made with a 100% khorasan sour dough starter and 100% khorasan flour for the final bread. It was a bit of an experiment but I liked how it turned out with a strong flavour and reasonable crumb. I based this recipe on the spelt leaven in Andrew Whitley's book 'Bread Matters' replacing the spelt with khorasan.

Wholemeal Sourdough Dough

Not at all common, but uncommonly good, especially as a sourdough. The one pictured I made in Tuscany and it has just emerged from the wood-fired oven, with a characteristic scorch. The base is local flavoursome flour, wholemeal stone-milled and biodynamic, and is a sourdough.
