Roggenvollkorn ohne Hefe

with 5 comments

Bäcker Süpke, in his blog, reported about whole-grain breads as interpreted by Baking academy in Weinheim. As he mentioned that this loaf was made without commercial yeast and had a singularly dense crumb, I quickly went through the cupboard to see if I had the ingredients, which are rye meal, rye meal and rye meal. My supply of rye grains was good for 1,5kg of rye bread.

The result is a moist loaf that is sliced thin to release its strong flavor and aroma. Very good. Will post translated recipe ASAP.

  1. recipe can’t be right! 1800 grams of sourdough???? That is a whole lot of sourdough.

    • No, the recipe is for a total of 1800g of dough.

      • Yes. Thanks.

        I sclaed the recipe by multiplying everything by 0.8, yielding approximately 1500g of dough.

  2. Nice. Just what I was looking for. By the way “il piccoletto da Oldenburg” went out very fine. It’s really surprising that a greater amount of rye meal doesn’t mean a more dense crumb, on the contrary!

    • I’m on it…translating the recipe, that is.

      I noticed that too. It seems to me that soaked rye meal can be quite ‘light’ in texture without losing texture and bite.
