Hi Kamado Peeps,
Been awhile since my last post.
I got a great book on breads; I have always been keen on making my own loafs and pizza with success but never really nailed the authentic artisan type dough. So for father’s day I got a book and I have been having a go with great results. Oh, yeh there is an art to making good breads. I recommend this book for any enthusiasts. Flour Water Yeast Salt.
All baked on my GAS webber. As I get better I will challenge myself on the Kamado with some natural woods I can’t wait (wood fired home baked bread) Also had to included the lemon meringue and poppy seed lemon cake baked on the webber
Semolina bread with whole-grain soaker test run was successful. This used a Poolish and when Poolish was ripe I made the dough. The whole grain were soaked in boiling water and kept at room temp for 4 hours, Crumb, texture and taste very good. For darker outside colour I should have baked at 30F hotter than I did. I was at 400 F and should had been at 430 to 450 F. Still happy with result based on taste this bread would make very good sandwich bread. This is definitely a keeper recipe.
Cracked Wheat Bread-test run successful. This bread tastes very good. It was made using hard white wheat artesian untreated flour, hard red spring wheat fresh ground, cracked wheat and malt syrup. Pate Fermentee yeasted pre-ferment was made. Cracked wheat made into soaker. It was a 75 % hydration dough.
Test run making Five-Grain Bread with Pate Fermentee. Taste is very good. I thought I had sunflower seeds but I didn’t so I used toasted sesame seeds in place of sunflower seeds. Happy with result. No picture of brotform loaf because I used expansion rack on Kamado and temperature gauge punctured one end of the loaf so appearance not nice. With baking loafs I shouldn’t use expansion rack. Small loaf baked on main rack.
Brown Rice bread, test run. Happy with taste, crumb and texture. I should have stopped at 30 minutes instead I took off after 38 minutes. Bottom of both loaves charred. This is tasty recipe. If I hadn’t charred bottom it would have been perfect. Outside temperatures-28 C. Recipe is keeper. I like the taste of the bread.
