Waldkorn bread

This is a variation on the seven-cereal-bread. Instead of the seven-cereal-meal, it contains waldkornmeal which I bought at the mill in Nijmegen.

During the first minutes in the oven, I sprayed it wet with a plant spray. I forgot to turn the bread, however. Look how unsymmetrical it has become! It tastes nice, though.

The bread is made with a preferment.


250 g flour
150 g water
¼ tsp instant yeast

all of the preferment
100 g wholewheat flour
150 g waldkorn-meal
150 ml water
¾ tsp instant yeast

The evening before baking, make the preferment. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and let stand on the counter all night.
The next day, mix the preferment with the other ingredients. Knead for three minutes, cover and let rise for 1½ hours.
Knock it down, knead very shortly and let rest for 15 minutes.
Roll it up and put it in a bread tin. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 220°C and wait until the oven has heated up.
Spray the dough wet with a plant spray and put it in the oven.
Repeat the spraying after 2 and then again after 2 minutes of baking.
While you spray the dough, turn it around and spray the other side as well. (As you can see, I did not.)
Total baking time is 35 minutes. After 10-15 minutes of baking time, lower the heat to 200°C.
When it's done, get it out of the oven and let cool on a wire rack.
