  • Flax Seed Whole Wheat

    I completely forgot to do everything I had agreed the last time I made whole grain bread. I specifically did not:

    1. Soak the grains overnight
    2. Wrap the proofing bread in a plastic bag
    3. Turn off convection

    Darn. I did immediately wrap the loaf in linen the moment it came out of the oven, and I hydrated the dough more. Both of which helped. The crust was very crunchy, but not too, too much. The flax seeds have a nice flavor, and I used the fresh Ball Mill flour.

    40% KA GP
    40% whole wheat
    20% whole rye
    10% whole flax seeds
    74% hydration (70% for the flours and 4% for the extra seeds).

    I promise to follow steps 1-3 next time. :-)

    The flax seeds will also be more digestible, and thus better for you, if you soak them overnight.

    It still looks good, even though you didn't do all those things!
