Spelt Sunflower Seed Sourdough Bread

spelt bread
Print Recipe
2 loaves
This recipe may sound complicated and time consuming, but it is quite forgiving. I like to bake the bread for dinner, so start a day ahead and make the dough, do the first rise, and put in the fridge overnight. I form the loaves in the morning and then put it back in the fridge, taking it out about an hour before I bake it (a couple hours before dinner as you don't want to slice it when it is too warm).

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces Bluebird Pasayten Hard White flour about 1 cup
  • 14 ounces Bluebird Spelt Flour about 1 3/4 cups
  • 11 ounces Organic unbleached white flour or bread flour, about 1 3/4 cups
  • 1/2 cup raw wheat germ
  • 12 ounces active sourdough starter about 1 3/4 cups
  • 3 1/4 cups lukewarm water more as needed
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2/3 cup sunflower seeds

Methods

  • Make sure your starter is active and ready for feeding
  • Mix flours, wheat germ, starter and 3 cups of water either by hand or in a mixer with a dough hook.
  • Add water as needed to make the dough come together. If you live in a dry area, you will need more water! Add enough water to make the dough pliable.
  • Keep mixing/knead for several minutes until a nice ball is formed and everything is well combined.
  • Cover with a cloth and let rest for 20-40 minutes.
  • Uncover and mix in sea salt and sunflower seeds. Knead until well mixed and seeds are spread throughout-about 4-6 minutes (this bread would be fine without sunflower seeds too). Cover with a cloth and plastic bag.
  • If you are around and have the time, every 45 minutes or so, stretch and fold the dough over itself 4-5 times. re-cover each time after turning.
  • Let the bread rise between 3-6 hours depending on how warm the rising area is (less time for warmer temp).
  • After one last stretch and fold, cover the dough with plastic wrap and put in the fridge. Let it rise in there for 4-12+/- hours.
  • Remove the dough from the fridge and divide into two pieces. Cover and let sit for 15 minutes.
  • Shape the bread into loaves by lightly wetting the surface and gently cupping the dough and circling it around until a nice ball forms.
  • Place in floured boule basket and repeat with second loaf. Cover the loaves with plastic wrap.
  • You can either let it rise for another hour in the basket and proceed with baking, or return to refrigerator and let it rise in there until you are closer to baking time.
  • About an hour before you plan to bake, remove boules from refrigerator (if you put boules in there), remove plastic wrap and cover with a cloth. Let the dough rest.
  • Preheat the oven to 475F and put in any baking stones if you plan to use them.
  • Invert dough onto floured cutting board and use a lame or blade to score the bread (usually a star pattern or line down the center with smaller slashes angling away from it). If you like a sturdy crust, spray the oven with water.
  • Put dough in the oven and spray the oven 3 times in the first five minutes.
  • Turn oven down to 425F after the last spray and let bake for 15 minutes. Rotate after this time and bake for another 10-20 minutes depending on how hot your oven is.
  • Place the bread on a cooling rack and let it rest for at least 30 minutes before slicing.

  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup dried currants
  • 1/4 cup almonds toasted and slivered
  • 1-2 teaspoons orange peel freshly grated
  • 1/3 cup rum brandy or orange juice will work
Sweet Bread Dough
  • 3 cups whole grain wheat flour Bluebird Sonora Flour, Hard Red Flour or Hard White Flour recommended. Be creative and use some of each.
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk warmed
  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 eggs (3 for recipe plus 1 for the egg wash)
Almond Paste Filling
  • 7 ounces almond paste
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
Rum and Butter Bath
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/2 cup rum
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • wax or parchment paper

Methods

  • In a small bowl combine dried fruit, almonds and orange zest with rum. Mix together until fruit and nuts are coated in rum. Set aside.
  • In mixer with a dough hook, combine the flour, yeast, salt, spices and softened butter. Mix on slow speed for 4 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together warm milk and honey, until honey is melted.
  • Add 3 eggs, whisking in one at a time.
  • With mixer on slow speed slowly combine wet ingredients with the flour mixture.
  • Mix on a higher speed for 4 to 5 minutes until ingredients are incorporated. Dough should be supple and bind together and not cling to the side of the bowl.
  •  Add the fruit and rum mixture. Mix on slow speed for 1 minute until incorporated.
  • Put dough onto a flour dusted countertop or silicon mat and carefully fold a few times until all the nuts and fruit are incorporated. Dough may be slightly sticky.
  • Place dough in a flour-dusted large bowl and cover. Let dough rest at room temperature for 2 hours (dough can be refrigerated for 2 days until you are ready to bake the bread).
  • While dough is proofing, mix almond paste with 2 tablespoons of melted butter. Set aside.
  • Sprinkle flour onto a silicon mat. Divide dough into two halves (about 850 grams each). Carefully press each piece of dough into a flat disc. With a rolling pin gently roll the dough into a 8 x 10 inch rectangle.
  • Spread almond-butter mixture evenly on top, 1/4 inch from the edges. Fold the long side of dough toward the center, pressing down the edges into its center. Fold the remaining side over the first fold, gently pinching the edges to seal the seam. Tuck in the ends. With your hands gently roll the loaf to even out the sides of the dough.
  • Place dough, seam down, on a parchment lined baking sheet, cover with a towel and let proof in a warm area for 45 minutes, careful not to overproof.
  • While dough is proofing, heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Just before baking, wash tops of the bread with the remaining egg.
  • Cover the top of the dough with foil to prevent browning and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until done. Cool on wire rack.
  • Mix melted butter and rum in a shallow pan. Roll the baked bread in the bath of rum and butter, coating thoroughly. Don’t be shy. When finished sift powdered sugar over the top of the bread.
  • Wrap bread individually in at least two layers of wax or parchment paper to keep it fresh.
  • Tie loaf with a bow and gift.

Crusty Einkorn Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread

Print Recipe
2 loaves
The overnight rise develops the flavor of einkorn beautifully in this crusty, naturally leavened loaf. It takes a few hours to make, but very little attention and the results are so remarkable, your friends won’t believe you made it at home. You’ll need an oven-proof cast iron Dutch oven pot with a lid to bake the loaf in a very hot oven to achieve a crackling crust.

Ingredients

Leaven
  • 4 teaspoons sourdough starter the more bubbly, the better
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons warm water (about 75F)
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour (100 grams)
  • 2/3 cup Bluebird Pasayten Hard White Flour (100 grams)
Dough
  • 3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon Leaven (200 grams)
  • 3 1/4 cups water warm (about 75F)
  • 2 2/3 cup Bluebird Einkorn Flour (400 grams)
  • 2 cups Bluebird Pasayten Hard White Flour (300 grams)
  • 1 cup all purpose flour (150 grams)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons fine sea salt
  • flour for dusting (semolina works great)

Methods

Leaven Method
  • The night before, mix leaven ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and set aside for 12 hours. 
  • To test, gently pinch off a bit of leaven and plop it into a small glass of water. If dough floats, it’s ready. If it doesn’t, try waiting for an additional hour or so. If it still doesn’t float, you may need to start over with a fresh starter.
To Make the Dough
  • The next morning, start the dough. In a large bowl, whisk together leaven with water.
  • Add Bluebird Einkorn Flour and Bluebird Pasayten Hard White Flour and mix to combine. Cover and set aside to allow flour to absorb water for 1 hour.
  • Add salt and 1/4 cup water and squish with your hands to combine. Cover with plastic and let rise 30 minutes.
  •  With a slightly wet hand, pull the dough up from the bottom and gently place on top of dough. Repeat all around the edges of dough until you’ve done 5 to 6 ‘folds.’ Cover and set aside for 30 minutes. 
  • Repeat folding. Do this 4 times total for a total of 2 hours of folding and resting.
  • Flour top of dough and turn out onto a clean work surface. Cut dough in half into 2 equal parts.
  • Flip dough with a bench scraper and form into rounds, folding the sticky cut end into itself. Gently cup the side of dough with your hands and pull towards you, trap air in the loaf and give it lift.
  • Cover loaves with large bowls and let rest for 20 minutes.
  • Flour tops of dough, flip with a bench scraper.  Gently coax/pull one piece of dough into a rough rectangle shape, don’t overstretch.
  • Pick the left side of dough up and place it over the center of the dough, as if you were folding a letter. 
  • Repeat with the right side of the dough. Pick the end closest to you and bring it up and over center to meet the far end. Gently cup with hands to form a rough round.  Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Flour center of 2 clean dish towels with semolina or rice flour. Place dough in the center of the towels. Pick up towels and place in 2 medium mixing bowls. Cover with plastic. Let one loaf rest at room temperature for 3 to 4 hours, an indent of your finger will remain when the loaf is poked.
  • Place the other loaf covered in the bowl in the refrigerator to bake the next day; this loaf will taste more distinctly sourdough.
  • 30 minutes before the bread is ready to bake, place a 3-quart or larger cast iron Dutch oven with lid,  in the oven and preheat to 450°F.
  • When dough is ready, discard plastic wrap. Place a large piece of parchment over a bowl and place a dinner plate on top. Invert bowl onto the plate. Remove the towel.
  • Score center of loaf with a sharp knife to assist bread in rising to its full potential.
  • Carefully, with oven mitts, pick up the loaf on the parchment and place it in a preheated Dutch oven. Cover and bake for 25 minutes.
  • Uncover and continue to bake until the loaf is deep golden brown, about 25 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the loaf will register 206-210°F
  • Transfer to a cooling rack, discard parchment, and let cool for 1 hour before slicing.
  • The next day, bake the second loaf the same way, but allow the dough to sit at room temperature while Dutch oven preheats
  • This bread freezes well when stored in a zip top freezer bag for up to 3 months. Uncover while defrosting.
