Potato Bread as sandwichbread




 This month Zorra of Bread Baking Day asked Susanne of Magentratzerl to be the host for BBD #84. Susanne came up with the theme "sandwich bread". I have to admit at first I had no idea what sandwich bread was. It's bread that can be roasted and is good for sandwiches. That sounds like good bread to me.

Today I make Dan Lepard’s crusty Potato Bread. The original recipe is found in his book “The Handmade Loaf”. I’ve tweaked it a bit, using whole wheat bran, rye and I love the smell and taste of wheat germ.

Because of the grated potato the dough was wet. I used the mixing method from Maggie Glezer’s Royal Tortano and let it mix until the dough cleaned the bowl. This took about 10 minutes. I could almost pour it into the slightly oiled bowl. But it was tacky in stead of sticky, a good thing.

I wanted to use my second hand cast iron pan to bake this bread. Thai food doesn't use 
cast iron pans; most Thai food is stir fried over high heat. 
Luckily for us our second hand cast iron pan was found in a second hand shop in Amsterdam 
and traveled in a backpack to our kitchen. 


This is what I used for 1 big loaf:
330 gr all purpose flour  
27 gr rye flour
45 gr whole wheat bran
10 gr wheat germ
160 gr lukewarm water
11 gr salt
27 gr honey
75 gr grated (uncooked) potato
250 gr active sourdough starter 100% hydration

This is what I did:
I peeled and grated the potato. The original recipe says to use unpeeled potato.
I added the sourdough starter to the lukewarm water and saw it floated nicely. I dispersed the sourdough in the water and added the honey, grated potato and all the flours. With a spoon I mixed all ingredients until they are all incorporated. I covered it with a towel and left it to autolyse for 30 minutes.

I sprinkled the salt and mixed on low speed for 3 minutes. Then I continued mixing on medium speed for 8 minutes until the dough cleaned the sides of the bowl.

I could almost pour the dough into a slightly oiled bowl. I covered it with a plastic bag and left to ferment for 1,5 – 2 hours. Every 50 minutes I stretched and folded the dough to give it more strength.

Pre shape the dough into a ball and cover it to rest for 15 minutes. Shape the dough into batard or boule as you like. Place it seam side up in a banneton or other proofing basket and into a plastic bag. I wanted to use my ceramic pan to bake the loaf, so I made a boule.
The original recipe says to retard it in the refrigerator overnight. Because we were going out the next day, I wanted to bake this bread the same day. I proofed it for 2 hours until it almost doubled in size.

Pre heat the oven, with baking stone and baking pan with hot stones.

Place the boule or batard on parchment paper on a peel. Boil hot water
I baked it at 230˚C for 15 minutes with steam and after removing the baking pan with hot stones I baked it another 35 minutes without steam.

Remove the loaf when it is nicely brown. It’s difficult to over bake bread. Leave the loaf in the oven with the door ajar for another 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

I send this to Susanne of Magentratzerl. And to We Love Yeast, the new showcase of Zorra and Sandra. Go and have a look!

  3. You should see how my partner Wesley Virgin's adventure launches with this shocking and controversial video.

    You see, Wesley was in the military-and soon after leaving-he found hidden, "self mind control" tactics that the government and others used to get everything they want.

    THESE are the same secrets lots of famous people (especially those who "became famous out of nothing") and elite business people used to become rich and successful.

    You probably know that you only use 10% of your brain.

    That's because most of your BRAINPOWER is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Maybe that thought has even occurred IN YOUR very own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head about seven years back, while riding a non-registered, beat-up bucket of a car with a suspended license and in his bank account.

    "I'm absolutely frustrated with going through life paycheck to paycheck! When will I finally make it?"

    You've taken part in those types of thoughts, isn't it right?

    Your very own success story is going to be written. All you have to do is in YOURSELF.

  6. I am Alecia Maldonado used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Dr Mandaker); he just got he just got his website (holyaraminta.com), has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps
    for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him as witchhealing@outlook.com He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,Barrenness(need a child),goodLuck voodoo,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
    more!
