Egg Multi-grain Rolls II

8 Jun

     I made these last week  to eat with burgers and sandwiches.  It’s an updated version of a formula I made a while ago.

I changed the original formula by swapping out the rye flour with freshly ground spelt, used First Clear instead of Bread Flour and upped the water content.  I also switched the olive oil with honey.

Right before baking I grated some fresh cheddar cheese on-top to give it an extra flavor kick.

The end result was a flavorful roll perfect for burgers or just about anything.

Levain Directions

Mix all the levain ingredients together for about 1 minute and cover with plastic wrap.  Let it sit at room temperature for around 7-8 hours or until the starter has doubled.  I usually do this the night before.

Either use in the main dough immediately or refrigerate for up to 1 day before using.

 Main Dough Procedure

About 10 minutes before you are ready to mix the flours and water, add the dehydrated onions to the water to re-hydrate them.

Mix the flours and water together in your mixer or by hand until it just starts to come together, maybe about 1 minute.  Let it rest in your work bowl covered for 20-30 minutes.  After 30 minutes or so  add the salt, starter (cut into about 7-8 pieces), eggs and honey and mix on low for 5 minutes.    Remove the dough from your bowl and place it in a lightly oiled bowl or work surface and do several stretch and folds.  Let it rest covered for 10-15 minutes and then do another stretch and fold.  Let it rest another 10-15 minutes and do one additional stretch and fold.  After a total of 2 hours place your covered bowl in the refrigerator and let it rest for 12 to 24 hours.

When you are ready to bake remove the bowl from the refrigerator and let it set out at room temperature still covered for 1.5 to 2 hours.  Remove the dough and shape into rolls around 125 -130 grams each.  Cover the rolls with a moist tea towel or plastic wrap Sprayed with cooking spray and let rise at room temperature for 1 1/2 – 2 hours.

Around 45 minutes before ready to bake, pre-heat your oven to 500 degrees F. and prepare it for steam.  I have a heavy-duty baking pan on the bottom rack of my oven with 1 baking stone on above the pan and one on the top shelf.  I pour 1 cup of boiling water in the pan right after I place the dough in the oven.

Right before you are ready to put them in the oven, grate some cheese or use an egg wash and add your toppings.  Next add 1 cup of boiling water to your steam pan or follow your own steam procedure.

After 1 minute lower the temperature to 425 degrees.  Bake for 25 minutes or until the rolls are nice and brown.

Take the rolls out of the oven when done and let them cool on a bakers rack for as long as you can resist.

 

Maple Yogurt Multi-grain Rolls

15 Apr

   Spring is finally here so it was time to make some rolls to use for grilled burgers.  I used a mix of fresh milled spelt and whole wheat along with some KAF bread flour.

I wanted to see if I could get some maple flavor in these so I added a dark 100% maple syrup in the levain and in the main dough.  Well, that achieved nothing except making the levain triple in size from the natural sugars in the syrup.  It did add a nice sweetness to the rolls but not enough to be over the top.

The Greek Yogurt and eggs along with the rolled oats made these rolls nice and moist and tasty.  They worked perfectly as hamburger buns and also tasted great with the grilled lemon chicken and fresh mozzarella I had for dinner last night.

Sweet Potato Multi-grain Bread

11 Apr

I’ve made bread with sweet potatoes before, but I have to say this is my best one yet.  Moist and flavorful there’s not much to complain about on this one.

I used a combo of freshly ground flours as well as Caputo 00 type flour.  The cottage cheese, eggs and roasted sweet potatoes created a moist and flavorful bread.

Note: Water content of whole eggs is 80 grams, Cottage Cheese 81 grams, Sweet Potatoes 145 grams for a total of 306 grams.  This was not included in the formula so the hydration of this bread is much higher than listed.

Levain Directions

Mix all the Levain ingredients together for about 1 minute and cover with plastic wrap.  Let it sit at room temperature for around 7-8 hours or until the starter has doubled.

Either use in the main dough immediately or refrigerate for up to 1 day before using.

 Main Dough Procedure

Mix the flours, roasted sweet potatoes, cottage cheese, eggs and 200 grams of water together in your mixer or by hand until it just starts to come together, maybe about 1 minute.  Let it rest in your work bowl covered for 20-30 minutes up to an hour.  Next add the salt, starter (cut into about 7-8 pieces), walnut oil and water (as needed) and mix on low for 5 minutes.  Remove the dough from your bowl and place it in a lightly oiled bowl or work surface and do several stretch and folds.  Let it rest covered for 10-15 minutes and then do another stretch and fold.  Let it rest another 10-15 minutes and do one additional stretch and fold.  After a total of 2 hours place your covered bowl in the refrigerator and let it rest for 12 to 24 hours.  (If you have a proofer you can set it to 80 degrees and follow above steps but you should be finished in 1 hour to 1.5 hours).

When you are ready to bake remove the bowl from the refrigerator and let it set out at room temperature still covered for 1.5 to 2 hours.  Remove the dough and shape as desired.   Place your dough into your proofing basket(s) and cover with a moist tea towel or plastic wrap sprayed with cooking spray.  The dough will take 1.5 to 2 hours depending on your room temperature.  Let the dough dictate when it is read to bake not the clock.

Around 45 minutes before ready to bake, pre-heat your oven to 550 degrees F. and prepare it for steam.  I have a heavy-duty baking pan on the bottom rack of my oven with 1 baking stone on above the pan and one on the top shelf.  I pour 1 cup of boiling water in the pan right after I place the dough in the oven.

Right before you are ready to put them in the oven, score as desired and then add 1 cup of boiling water to your steam pan or follow your own steam procedure.

After 1 minute lower the temperature to 450 degrees.  Bake for 25-35 minutes until the crust is nice and brown and the internal temperature of the bread is 200 degrees.

Take the bread out of the oven when done and let it cool on a bakers rack before for at least 2 hours before eating.

Chocolate Cottage Cheese Tangzhong 00 Sourdough

4 Apr

I promised my wife last month that I would make her a version of a chocolate bread she saw posted from a bakery on-line.  I finally had a chance to bake my version.  I wanted to make a soft moist bread with plenty of flavor and several different types of chocolate.

I chose a version of a Tangzhong bread I’ve made in the past and used cottage cheese instead of ricotta and milk instead of buttermilk.

This ended up being a very wet dough but it created a wonderful open and moist crumb chock full of chocolate goodness.  The dough was perfectly developed and sprung up wonderfully high in the oven when baked.

Here are the Zip files for the above BreadStorm files.

 

 

Tangzhong is the technique of heating a portion of the flour and liquid in your recipe to approximately 65C to make a paste (roux).  At this temperature the flour undergoes a change and gelatinizes.  By adding this roux to your final dough it will help create a soft, fluffy, moist open crumb.  It is also supposed to help prevent the bread from going stale.

It is not very difficult to do a Tangzhong.  Use a  5 to 1 liquid to solid ratio (so 250g liquid to 50g flour) and mix it together in a pan.  Heat the pan while stirring constantly.  Initially it will remain a liquid, but as you approach 65C it will undergo a change and thicken to an almost pudding like consistency.  Take it off the heat and let it cool before using it in your recipe.  Some people will refrigerate it for a while but you can use it right away as soon as it cools.

Levain Directions  (Using AP Starter at 66% Hydration for Seed)

Mix all the levain ingredients together  for about 1 minute and cover with plastic wrap.  Let it sit at room temperature for around 7-8 hours or until the starter has doubled.  I used my Proofer set at 81 degrees and it took about 4 hours.

Main Dough Directions
Prepare the Tangzhong per directions above and allow to cool to room temperature.

Mix the flours, Tangzhong, milk and water together in your mixer or by hand until it just starts to come together, maybe about 1 minute.  Let it rest in your work bowl covered for one hour or longer.  Next add the salt, butter, egg, oil, cheese and starter (cut into about 7-8 pieces), and  mix on low for a minute.   Mix for a total of 6 minutes in your mixer starting on low-speed and working your way up to speed #3 for the last 2 minutes.  Remove the dough from your bowl and place it in a lightly oiled bowl or work surface and do several stretch and folds.  Let it rest covered for 10-15 minutes and then do another stretch and fold.  Let it rest another 10-15 minutes and do one additional stretch and fold.  On the last stretch and fold, gently add the chocolate a little at a time and fold it into the dough until fully incorporated.  After a total of 2 hours place your covered bowl in the refrigerator and let it rest for 12 to 24 hours.

When you are ready to bake remove the bowl from the refrigerator and let it set out at room temperature still covered for 1/2 hour.  Remove the dough and cut into 2 equal size pieces and form into  loose rounds.  Let it sit covered for around 15-30 minutes.  Do your final shaping and place into your baskets or couche.   Let the dough proof in your proofer set at 78 degrees for 1.5 hours or on your counter for 1.5 – 2 hours until the dough has risen about 50%.  Let the dough dictate when it is read to bake not the clock.

Around 45 minutes before ready to bake, pre-heat your oven to 550 degrees F. and prepare it for steam.  I have a heavy-duty baking pan on the bottom rack of my oven with 1 baking stone on above the pan and one on the top shelf.

Next add 1 cup of boiling water to your steam pan or follow your own steam procedure.

After 1 minute lower the temperature to 450 degrees.  Bake for 35 minutes until the crust is nice and brown.

Take the breads out of the oven when done and let them cool on a bakers rack for as long as you can resist before digging in.  This is a good bread to eat warm with the chocolate still melting.

 

Apple Cider Rye with Walnuts

6 Nov

dsc_0049       This is a great fall bread made with apple cider, rye flour and lots of walnuts.  If you don’t like walnuts you can certainly leave them out or cut  down on the amount used which was quite a bit.

I really like the combination of flavors in this one.  I ended up with a little more of a bold bake than I would have liked but it tastes great.

Multi-grain Egg Rolls

4 Jul

DSC_0048 The last batch of rolls I made were very rich so I wanted to make something a bit more lean this time.  I omitted the cream cheese and changed up some of the flours and used whole eggs and olive oil in place of the cream cheese and butter.

They came out very tasty and while not as rich and buttery as the last batch, they still make great burger buns and sandwich rolls as well.

Fresh Milled Durum Barley Egg Bread

8 Feb

Closeup2    This was supposed to be a Sprouted Durum loaf but I have not had time to do any sprouting lately.  I pulled out my mill and in went the durum berries and out came fresh Durum flour.  My mill does have its limitation so I have not been doing any sifting therefore the flour in this case was not as fine as store bought.

I decided to add some barley flour to try and get a little more nutty flavor and some egg yolks and butter to soften the crumb a bit.

The final bread was a little dry for my tastes but still tasted great.  Next time I would definitely up the water content to over 80% which would open up the crumb more and improve the overall bread.
