#41 of the BBA Challenge – Whole-Wheat Bread. This was a weird bread. Soaker + poolish + dough. Everything went fine, though, until after the first rise. The dough doubled without any problems, then I divided it into 2 pieces and formed sandwich loaves which I put in loaf pans for a another rise. Well, almost nothing happened. Not after 1 1/2 hours, not after 2 hours, and not after 2 1/2 hours… So I put them in the oven, and as I had expected, there was no oven spring either. I have no idea what went wrong, but these breads were really flat. The taste was ok, and I don’t mind whole-wheat bread at all. On the contrary – I love whole-wheat bread. But will I make THIS bread again? No!
