The Approachable Loaf-pt 2
I am once again trying The Approachable Loaf from the 2020 Community Bake
This time I am replacing some of the Whole Wheat with Bread Flour and am adding the Honey back in. Total Amounts are still the same for a 1,000g loaf.
|Whole Wheat Flour||352||68.00%|
I saw someone did a 100% poolish on another post with whole wheat bread so I thought I would just do all my whole wheat as a poolish. I have a bad habit of experimenting before I even get the basics down so if this doesn’t work out I’ll just go make some muffins and do some cake planning (my son’s birthday coming up).
I also read that Hamelman mixes his yeast with the water before adding in the flour (poolish), so I think I’ll do that too. He also mixes a little water at a time in the center of the dough when using a dough hook for kneading. He pulls out the hook then puts a little water in that empty space in the middle and then continues mixing. Water, mix, water, mix. I may use my mixer, but it’s a good mental note for the next time I do.
The poolish will be started as soon as my littlest one goes to bed.
(I also have no idea why my spreadsheet looks like that.)
