A Stir The Pots Post


by | Feb 7, 2017 | Bread

 Below is a formula I found from my files dating back to baking school. It's taken me years to follow up on it. One thing, I didn't understand why the pumpernickel didn't have the percent of water in the final dough. I asked one of my former instructor and he suggested I adjust. Intuitive trials commenced. Below are shots of the first try. It tasted fine. There will be tweaking.
