Jeffrey Hamelman, the Director of the Baking Education Center at King Arthur Flour, has written a new book. It's called   [product="26787"]Bread A Bakers Book Of Techniques And Recipes Second Edition?[/product] and represents a huge leap forward for home bread bakers. Written as a reference for professional bakers, the book overtly includes us home types with respect.

This is his Wheat Bread with Multigrain Soaker.


The dough uses a pate fermente which is made with 35% of the formula's flour.

The soaker is comprised of millet, cracked wheat, coarse, corn meal and rolled oats. The total fermentation time is 2 hours with the dough getting turned after the first hour.


The shaped loaves proof for 60-90 minutes.


Oven Ready.


Nice oven spring and great crust development.


My goal here was a sandwich bread and this works beautifully!

The flavor developed from the preferment, 50% whole wheat and the soaker is great. The soaker gives the crumb a great texture too.
