Baking Bread

05 Aug 2014 0 Comments 1 minute read

I love bread, I really adore it. Lovely sandwiches. As it has become really difficult to find good bread at bakeries, I started to bake it on my own. And it’s really easy and quick. It takes me less work than going to a bakery. And it also inspired me to go for another sketchnote.

So here’s what I need for my rye & wheat wholemeal bread:

  • 250 g rye wholemeal
  • 150 g sourdough
  • 3.5 g dried yeast (or half a package of fresh yeast)
  • ~ 300 ml water
  • 1-2 tablespoon golden syrup, maple syrup or honey
  • 250 g wheat wholemeal
  • 50 g muesli without fruits
  • 10-20 g salt
  • some more muesli for decoration

First I mix rye wholemeal, sourdough, yeast, water and syrup in bowl and put it for half an hour in the oven (50°C).

After that I add wheat wholemeal, muesli and salt to the dough and have my kitchen machine knead it.

Then I put the dough in a baking dish (I have one made of silicone – can’t but recommend it) and sprinkle some muesli on top of it. Then I put a wet cloth over the dish and put it back into the switched off oven.

After some time I heat the oven to 200°C and back the bread for ~50 minutes.

And here is the sketchnote for it – it differs a little bit from timings and amounts and doesn’t go for a dish, but in the end it’s as good. Unfortunately it’s in German:
