multi-seed wholemeal with more pics

told you i can't have enough of those multi-seed bread...

this time i made 4 loaves, using the same method but with different ingredients.

multi-seed wholemeal
overnight sponge
  • 1 cup of wholemeal
  • 3/4 cup water
  • slightly less than 1/4 tsp instant yeast
i mixed this about 9pm saturday nighte.

this is what it looks like 9am sunday morning.

it has risen and collapsed. it has a faint sweet smell.

on baking day, mix with
  • 1 cup wholemeal
  • 2 cups of white bread flour
  • 3/4 cup soaked in warm water mixture of flaxseed, pumpkin seed and sunflower seed
  • 1/4 tsp instant yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • and suitable amount of water until dough "feels sticky"
after kneading for about 20 minutes, here it is in a dusted plastic container.

 2 hours later...

you could see the dough has grown quite a lot!

so take it out, proof it, shape it... you should know the drill by now. otherwise click on the "basic bread recipe" tags on the right.

baked at 180c for 20-25 minutes, or until desired "golden browness". 
bread baking is so easy!
