simple sponge based whole wheat bread

Recipe Ingredients for Whole wheat Bread

2 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup water
1 tsp yeast
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp olive oil

Recipe Directions for Whole wheat Bread

  1. Overnight sponge

  2. 1 tsp fresh or dried yeast

  3. 1/2 cup lukewarm water

  4. 2/3 cup stoneground wholewheat flour

  5. Dissolve the yeast in some of the water and add it to the flour with the rest of the water. Mix until the dough has "cleared," that is, all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. There is no need to knead the sponge, since time will develop the gluten sufficiently. Put the sponge in a bowl large enough to allow it to expand to at least three times its original size. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap and leave it at room temperature for 12-18 hours.

  6. The final dough

  7. overnight sponge (from above)

  8. 2 cups flour (wholemeal or a mix of white and wholemeal)--I used a mix

  9. 1 tsp salt

  10. 1 tbsp butter

  11. 1 cup water (warm to the hand)

  12. 1 butter, melted or olive oil (optional, but makes it a bit softer)

  13. Mix all the ingredients into a soft

  14. dough. Knead without adding extra flour until it is silky and slightly stretchy.

  15. Cover and leave to rise for 1 hour in a warm place. Divide into 2 for small loaves or 12 pieces if you want to make rolls. For rolls, dip pieces into wholemeal flour to get a good covering, and place on a baking tray with about 1 inch separating them. Cover with a clean, dry cloth. Let them rise in a warm place until they are just touching each other. For bread, place them on a baking several inches apart, cover them with a clean, dry cloth and let rise for an hour or so in a warm place. For rolls bake at 425 F (220 C) for 10-15 minutes. For loaves bake at 400 F (210 C) for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 375 F (200 C) and bake for another fifteen minutes.
