Rosemary roasted potato bread - test run successful. Hydration 61%, fresh rosemary at 1 %, hard red spring whole wheat flour at 15%, Hard white wheat artesian flour at 85%, roasted potatoes at 25%. Taste is very nice, rosemary not overpowering, Might try again at 2% later next year. Still need to improve my shaping so line in bottom not visible. If this was entered in to bread baking contest I would lose some points. Everything else would score decently. This is another success as far as I am concerned for taste, crumb, texture and moisture.
Temperature outside was -9C, Made sure final dough temperature after final kneading at 75 F.
Here is my test run on Roasted Potatoe bread, hydration is 61% with Hard white artesian flour 85%, 15% whole wheat flour from hard red spring wheat and 25 % roasted yellow potatoes. I still need to practice fendu shaping, you can see in picture fendu shape not right yet. The dip in middle needs to more like a u shape. Only Pate Fermentee was not in pictures otherwise all other ingredients where. Taste is very nice with roasted potatoes as part of the bread.
Rustic bread test run was successful. I used 2.2 kg scale. Base of recipe was same dough as country bread but this time bread has 20% whole-wheat (10% rye, 10% hard red spring wheat). I have to thank Larry about his YouTube video where to said to shut vents after 10 minutes, the bottom of crust was perfect. Very happy with taste. This bread delicious on own and can be eaten with other dishes.
1st test run some scored failed and loaf collapsed during brotform turn over, taste was very good but since I considered it a failure no photos from it included, 2nd test run, on Country bread loaf was smashing success. My scoring worked much better on this test. Still need some more practice to have my scores look professional. One change I made was to mist top of loaf well with water before placing on pizza stone in my Kamado grill. It helped make the crust better for the texture I was looking for, the taste, crumb and texture is awesome. Baked at 450F. Tastes so good I am going to have another slice. Enjoy the photo’s.
1 cup of water + 1 tbs
1/3 cup of white vinegar
4 cups of all purpose flour
1/4 cup of potato flakes
4 1/2 tbs white sugar
2 1/2 tbs powder milk
2 tsp kosher salt
3 tbs butter
4 tsp instant dry yeast
1 heaping tbs dill seed.
Combine according to your bread machine instructions. Mine says add fluid, flour, other - being certain the yeast does not come in contact with any water.
Use the knead/dough only quick cycle. Once the cycle is completed remove the dough ball and form a "log" blob. Have a pre-warmed pizza stone ready with a heating pad underneath set to high to keep it warm. The stone should be a gentle warm and not hot. Place a large clear bowl over the dough and allow an additional 1 to 1 1/2 hours to rise. I put some cornmeal on the stone to help prevent sticking.
Place in the kamado preheated to 350 degrees setup for indirect cooking and bake for about 50 minutes or until the loaf sounds hollow when you tap on it.
Cut and serve - be sure to try it still warm with butter!
