Sourdough Seed Bread

Sourdough Seed Bread

I decided to focus on sourdough this month and so did the Mellow Bakers.  The first bread on the list for December is a Sourdough Seed Bread . This is a naturally leavened bread. It is made with a liquid levain, and a flaxseed soaker. The flax seeds provide taste, color and nutrition and toasted sunflower and sesame seeds provide a nutty flavor.

I used my apple starter to build the liquid levain. It has become a very mature liquid culture over the past couple of months and I really like using it. I’ve neglected my other two starters so this month I’ll be nurturing them back to life.

Ingredients

  • 4.8 oz (1 1/8 cups) bread flour
  • 6 oz (3/4 cup) water
  • 1 oz (2 T) mature culture (liquid)
