Instructions

Prepare the biga by combining flour, water and yeast. Mix at a low speed for 1 minute and then let rest for 4 hours in a covered container.

 

Next, in a separate container, soak the seeds with hot water, and allow to soak for 2 hours.

 

Now, to prepare the dough, combine all ingredients including prepared biga and soak in a spiral mixer and blend for 1 minute on your mixer’s first speed. Then, blend for an additional 6 minutes on your mixer’s second speed, or until fully developed. Maintain the dough temperature at 82°F (28°C) and let rise for 30 minutes.

 

Next, divide dough into desired portions and shape. Place into a proofer set to 85°F (29°C) with 95% humidity for around 50-60 minutes. Next, remove from proofer and score as desired.

 

Set your oven to 440°F (226°C) and bake bread for 35 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven, and let cool.
