Roasted Garlic & Rosemary Bread

Recommended Posts

I'm reposting my October Bread Challenge entry here as an artisan bread recipe. 

 

I also just posted how to make the yeast starter in this same forum (http://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/15812-sourdough-yeast-starter/).

 

Ingredients:
15 oz (wt) Bread Flour
About a cup of Bread Yeast Starter (<--  link to video)
1 bulb Roasted Garlic (wrapped in oil & foil @ 400 deg F for 30 minutes)
2 large fresh Rosemarey Sprigs (minced)
1/2 Tbsp Salt
1 tsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Molasses
About 2-3 oz (wt) Water or more depending on thickness of Starter

 

This is the slideshow version:

 

 

This is the picture by picture version:

 

1) The day before, pull your yeast starter from the fridge, feed it, and let it warm/build up.

2) The night before, make a sponge starter.  Add 5 oz (wt) Bread Flour, 1 cup yeast starter, and about 2-3 oz water to bowl and mix well.  The sponge should have wet medium consistency. Add water/four as necessary.

3) Next morning, the sponge should be ready.

4) Roast the garlic, let it cool and squeeze out the soft aromatic cloves into the bowl with the rest of the ingredients.

5) Mix and knead on stand mixer with dough hook for 10 minutes. Add flour or water as necessary to achive a dough ball that doesn't stick to the bowl.

 

6) Form into round ball and place in oiled bowl.  Cover.

7) Let rise all day.  Punch down a couple times if necessary.

 

8) Form into desired shape (a baguette loaf this time).

9) Let rise until doublish in size.  In the meantime, fire up the kamado indirectly to about 450 deg F.  Cut diagonal breaks in the top of the loaf and spritz with water spray bottle.

10) Place loaf on kamado. Cook for 25-30 minutes or until done. Remove and let cool.

11) Slice it up and serve with sauce of olive oil, parmesan, oregano, and black pepper.

Larry, I'd like to keep both of these in the recipe section... could you post the ingredients and instruction lists with each?

That looks terrific. I am trying to figure out how I can make this with the overnight artisan method. I roast garlic all the time and have it in the freezer.

The artisan method I am talking about is no starter but the 5 minute flour water salt and yeast. Mix all together with water and leave 8 hours to overnight on the counter. I will try your method when I can get my rear in gear.

I just tried this recipe and it had wonderful flavor!! I think I missed a little on the rise though. It was slightly denser than I expected. After pulling from the mixer bowl, I just let it rise all a day ~8 hours. It had doubled already. After forming into a loaf it rose some more. Should I have formed the loaf earlier? Or should I have let rise after forming loaf longer?

 

I am new to bread baking... This recipe is actually one of the inspirations for giving it a shot :-) Thank you for sharing @BEER-N-BBQ by Larry !!

 

Also, I assumed the 5 oz wt of bread flour for the starter was part of the 15 oz total. Was that right? 

 

Thanks again!

Yes. Part of the total.
There are many reasons for a poor final rise:
1. Weak yeast
2. The year ran out of food. The initial rise may have went too long. Should be double in size before reforming.
3. Didn't sit long enough to rise.
4. Oven temp is too low. The first ten minutes of baking at least should be at least 450 deg.
5. The skin set before it could rise fully in The oven. Cause:. The oven was too dry. Next time spray some water in the oven initially and at the five minute point to keep steam in the oven long enough to prong the outside firming up.

Thanks for the pointers! 

It had been doubled for several hours before I formed the loaf, and probably sat for another 45 min - 1 hr, while the grill came up to temp. It did expand some after forming but I guess it was a mix of 2 and 3 you mentioned. 

 

I'll try again soon and keep an eye on 4 and 5 too.

      Here's a really simple loaf that has the added flavor benefit of a poolish....
       
      Overall recipe ingredients:
       
      425g Bread Flour
      320g Water
      8.5g salt
      7g yeast
       
      The technique I used here was to make a poolish from 75g of the overall flour and 100g of the overall water.  Instead of just a pinch of active dry yeast, I used 15g of my sourdough starter instead.  I mixed that up and let it do it's magic overnight for 12 hours.  
       
      Today, I combined that poolish with the rest of the water at 95 degrees the mixed in the rest of the ingredients and let the dough hook knead it for 10 minutes.  I shaped that into a dough ball and let it rise covered in a greased bowl for 90 minutes.  
       
      I took that out and shaped it into my cast iron loaf pan.  I let that rise for another 30 mintues.  
       
      I put it on the Kamado Joe at 475 degrees for 20 minutes with a foil cover and then uncovered for another 20 minutes...

      Hey guys, I posted this over the recipes forum a day or two ago, because it was the first forum on bread I could find using Tapatalk.  I then realized it was the wrong place for it, so I'm reposting here.
       
      A friend of mine bought Ken Forkish's book "Flour Water Salt Yeast" a little while ago, and after borrowing it for a short span I bought my own copy, and have had a blast baking bread following Ken's instructions.  I've tried a lot his recipes and have started making a few of my own creations using the techniques he teaches.
       
      However, whether I follow a recipe or go freestyle, something as beautiful as the first image always comes out black on the bottom.  I get mixed results in both the KJ and Akorn.  I think the best way I've found for baking in the KJ is with th deflector stones in place directly over the coals.  Only trouble with that is I have a hard time getting to and maintaining 475 degrees, especially with a ginormous Dutch oven in there.  I can get my Akorn to temp REAL fast, and then put the heat difuser in and let things simmer down, but the bottom always comes out scorched.  Again, only time I seem to get burning is when I use the Dutch oven.  Sad. 
       
      My Kamado Joe has been tied up with a pork butt this afternoon, so I fired up my Akorn for the first time in months to have a go. I recall having a little more success with bread on my Akorn (but I haven't done as much bread on my KJ yet - not knocking it), but on both this keeps happening, and I end up cutting off a good portion of the bottom crust.
       
      This particular loaf is about 80% whole wheat, 80% hydration, and is a hybrid levain (i.e. Sourdough), with 100 grams of my own started as well as 1/4 tsp instant yeast (yes, a relatively large amount, but it rises amazingly, which I love).
       
      Baking method: preheat kamado to ~500 with diffuser plate in place and rack above (no water pan), put a pizza steel for extra deflection on the rack, then the Dutch oven on the steel. Let it all warm up 10-20 minutes (maybe not the full amount, but seems to be hot enough), and then drop the loaf in and put the lid back on. Bake for 20 minutes, pull the lid, and then remove after another 5-10 minutes. This yielded the results above.
       
      I thought the lower stone and the steel would keep enough direct heat off the bottom of the bread, but doesn't appear too. The only time I've not burned it is when I've got it directly on a stone on the top rack (no Dutch oven), or in a pie pan on the upper rack of my Akorn (also no Dutch oven). I really want to keep the Dutch oven in place because that's supposedly what makes the bread split open on top. Is an Akorn even moist enough to get away without using it?
       
      Any thoughts and recommendations (and especially experience) is much appreciated. Thanks!

      Hi guys,its been a long while since i posted on this website.I have kinda forgot about my vision grill over recent years and have been using my pellet and gas grill more often because of laziness, but this season i have decided to get as much use out of my kamado as possible. I recently went back home to Ireland and was reacquainted with one of my favorite post pub foods...the Chicken shish kebab from a persian place called zaytoon. The chicken shish is chicken marninaded in spices and yogurt and cooked over charcoal,served with salad,garlic sauce,chili sauce on what seems and tastes like a large naan bread.The naans are cooked in a large stone like oven and i thought the kamado would be a perfect substitute if i got the right recipe.Thanks in advance.
      ps here is a video of the recipe for the chicken marinade,this guy has got a lot of great videos for various middle eastern kebab recipes.

      Naan Bread on the Blackstone Oven

      Got the hankering today for some naan bread on the Blackstone.  Used a yogurt based naan recipe off the web and included minced garlic and chopped cilantro as some toppings rolled into the flattened rounds.  Cooked on the Blackstone Patio Oven at between 650 and 700 degrees for about 1 ½  minutes.

      The wood pizza peel worked well to load the naan rounds in sequence with up to three at a time on the rotating stone.   I may have left a few in a bit too long and got them crisper than they should have been learning the cooking times.  But they were still good eats.   Next time out I might raise the temperature to over 800  – we shall see how that works.  Not a bad result at all for first time baking naan on the Blackstone.

      The bread was brushed with salted melted butter after baking.  The bread formed the base for a meal of left over New York strip steak that had been previously grilled on the Kamado as dinner earlier in the week along with sautéed red and green bell pepper, onion and seasonings.

      Enjoy!

      This is probably my first successful attempt at the Josey Baker Bread sourdough recipe and technique.  This loaf will accompany the Thanksgiving meal tomorrow!
