A Stir The Pots Post

Rustic in nature, but rye in demeanor Rustikale Brötchen

by | Nov 8, 2008 | Bread


Since getting my baguettes right, I decided to concentrate my efforts on some German rye Cimg5660_4
and whole grain loaves. Honestly, there have been noticeable improvement in my endeavors so far. My second (or maybe it was my fifth!) attempt at a Volkornbrot was tasty. But honestly, it came out with a blown top. I dunno what that effect is called, but it didn’t stop me from garnishing this toothy loaf with cheese and sausages.


Point being????? Fellow culinary artistes, arrivistes, never-mind good old fashion & new fashion bakers, yee should not be  dissuaded. No, yee shan’t. Or shouldn’t!


Myself, I flipped through my multitude of recipes in books, spreadsheets and found a loaf that sounded monolithic – aka easy to make. Then preparing the sauer that proofed at least 18 hours for the following day’s bake, dropping zeroes from final numbers on the PDF file found on the website of Böcker sauerteig, I played it safe until feeling safe by going for a larger percentage of rye.

Point being????? What I’m suggesting below is a recipe that uses 70 percent wheat to 30 percent rye sort of a country loaf, and it could be turned into Brötchen rather than the huge three pounder I made here! The verdict, quick and easy, and good with some leberwurst I got from my butcher!

Point being??? Enjoy!
