Another wonderful smelling bake from this month's challenge: Mixed Grain Bread. With white and wholemeal spelt, and white flour, honey, fennel and caraway, and a very lively sourdough starter, these loaves are sure to taste nice.
However...I doubled on the recipe, but I think I put a little too much dough in the larger tin, and also I think they were about 20 minutes over proven. Its warm and humid today, so setting the timer for a final two hour rise, and going off to do something else, was bound to lead to 'I wish I had gone to check sooner feeling'!
Although on the recipe it gives a 500g bread tin as the container, the picture facing shows some little loaves cooling, so this is why there are three smaller loaves and a large one. Next time I shall make dough for four small tins and the larger one.
I played at filling all my different tins with water this morning, and weighing them, and then calculating how much dough each one should hold. Now I have a formula for working out the correct amount of ingredients to give the dough weights I need. Well I have to put to good use all those maths lessons!!!!!
