Semolina Sourdough Breads! Another recipe!

A few days ago, I made these glorious delicious semolina sourdough breads!

This breads or these breads are a bit more sour & that is what I wanted & I think this is because my white spelt sourdough is more matured now & is 5 months old! Yes! 😉

This is my 2nd recipe that is called semolina sourdough breads. You can find my 1st recipe, made with oat sourdough here!

Lovely Crumb!

Recipe: For 2 breads, each 520 gr!!

Ingredients:

100 gr organic white spelt flour

204 gr organic T 65 white flour

304 gr organic semolina flour

310 gr warm water

7 gr salt

155 gr active bubbly white spelt sourdough (mine was 5 months old!)

60 gr extra virgin olive oil (ooh yes, that much!)

Method:

  1. Take Kenwood major & place dough hook in. In fitted bowl, add all ingredients except the olive oil & begin to mix it all in on low-speed aka number 2-3 for 4 minutes. Stop machine from time to time to scrape down the sides & turn machine on again. Then, pour in your olive oil gradually while the machine is turning! Turn speed gradually up to number 5 & knead dough for another 5 minutes.
  2. Take dough out of the bowl with help of a dough scraper. The dough will stick a bit but that is normal. I don’t flour my counter just my hands & dough scraper! Knead the dough by hand for another 2 minutes. I did the stretch & fold method a few times to strengthen the gluten within! Oil a big bowl & put dough in it. I place a closed plastic bag over it & let it sit to double in size. My room temperature was 21°C. This took my dough 4-5 hours. Stretch & fold your dough in all directions, after 1 hour & after 2 hours.
  3. Divide your dough into 2 equal parts & put them into well rice floured banettons of your liking! I chose an oval & a round one. Place the seam upwards into your banetton. Flour a bit of flour ob-ver the top to prevent sticking to the plastic bag! Place closed plastic bag over them & let them proof for about 3 hours. Preheat your oven to 225°C.(437 F)Take bread Silpat & place onto an unheated oven rack. Carefully, turn bread out of banetton onto a bread Silpat that is placed onto a cold oven rack. Finally, score your bread, the way you like it & smear top & sides of your bread with water. Bake your breads for about 30-35 minutes. Take bread out of the oven & tap the bottom. If it sounds hollow, it is fully baked. I always insert a kitchen thermometer into the centre of my bread. When it is 95°C (203 F) then it is fully baked, if not return for 10 minutes more into the oven! Let it cool down completely on a wire rack ! Enjoy with some vegan butter or with a good slice of cheese or ham! Store in an organic bread bag!
MMMMM!
