This is my tenth sourdough baking course and many of you have been asking me to do more with whole grains. As the baking courses have gotten more advanced with newer and more advanced techniques, I have tried to incorporate more whole grains. With this course there are even more formulas and flour blends using whole grains. Ten new formulas are featured in this course. Most of the whole grain flour is freshly ground. They are all made with sourdough, no commercial yeast is used.

The loaves featured are:

  • Khorasan Boules
  • July Loaf
  • Spring Fling Seeded Sourdough
  • CranNut Sourdough
  • Khorasan Batards
  • Organic Red Spring Wheat Rustic
  • One Day Miche
  • Ranch Sourdough
  • Stegosaurus Bread
  • Beetroot Sourdough Bread

You will also learn how to figure out the Desired Dough Temperature or DDT, how to grind and use fresh grains, utilize leftover bran from sifting flour, incorporate low hydration Motherdough, shape 100% hydration dough and also how to make and use dough binders, they are so much fun! 

If you need to learn basic sourdough baking skills, please begin with the first few courses, beginning skills are not covered in this course. The formulas in this course are intended for intermediate to advanced bakers. 

Some student reviews from my other baking courses:

Kamut Sourdough Bread Formula. Khorasan (commonly known as Kamut, which is a trademarked name)Sourdough Bread has 20% by flour weight of freshly ground Khorasan flour. If you don't have access to Khorasan flour, please feel free to substitute any other whole grain flour. I love Khorasan's creamy golden color and wonderful flavor! 

Khorasan Sourdough Boules - The Formula with 20% Whole Kamut Flour

Here's a bit of information on Khorasan wheat and where it came from. 

Information About Khorasan Wheat (Kamut)

This formula has 20% Kamut in it. Kamut has a different, more fragile gluten than regular wheat so the dough should be handled with that in mind. 

Khorasan Sourdough Boules - Mix the Dough

After autolyse, add the salt and start mixing/folding the dough. 

Preview 02:01

Pre-shape the dough and then let it bench rest before final shaping.

This is the formula for July Loaf. July loaf has the fresh whole wheaty flavor and aroma of freshly ground wheat, it is a delightful, flavorful loaf. This is an easy loaf with 22% freshly ground whole wheat flour in the formula. If you keep a whole wheat starter, there would be even more. It is at 70% hydration, but the whole grains soak up a lot of the water so the dough feels drier. If you wish to work with an even higher hydration, check the formula for the variation. 

July Loaf Formula with 22% Whole Wheat

Let's mix up the dough and start the autolyse. 

July Loaf - Mix the Dough and Autolyse

It's time to add the salt and bulk ferment the dough.

This is the Formula for Spring Fling Seeded Loaf. This dough has a lot of nice Chia and Flax seeds in it and will make a soft, hearty loaf. The loaf will stay moist for several days because of the seeds.

Spring Fling Seeded Loaf Formula

See how to make up the Spring Fling loaves. 

Spring Fling Seeded Loaf - How To

Dough binders are so much fun and so easy! They make the dough spring up higher and so the oven spring is much greater. 

How to Make Dough Binders/Bands

Cran-Nut Sourdough is made with over 50% freshly milled whole wheat (mixture of white and red wheat). It is cold proofed overnight and baked the next day. The addition of walnuts and cranberries makes a delicious fragrant loaf great served with cream cheese or toasted with lots of butter. This is not a sweet bread and has no sugar added to the dough other than what is in the dried cranberries.

Cran-Nut Sourdough The Formula

Grind fresh flour and mix the dough then allow it to autolyse. 

Cran-Nut Sourdough - Mixing the Dough

It's time to add salt and begin folding the dough to develop strength.

Scoring is always fun. Score the dough and bake the loaf.

Cran-Nut Sourdough - Score and Bake the Loaves

My favorite part, let's slice into the loaf and see what it looks like inside!

Seeded Khorasan Sourdough Batards have 31% by flour weight of freshly ground Khorasan (Kamut) flour. If you don't have access to Kamut/Khorasan flour, please feel free to substitute any other whole grain flour. I love Kamut's creamy golden color and wonderful flavor! This formula is a variation of the Khorasan Sourdough Boules earlier in the course but it has seeds, is a higher hydration and has more whole grain flour in it. 

Khorasan Seeded Batards - The Formula

After mixing the dough, you will be making up the seed mixture to allow it to cool during the autolyse period. 

Khorasan Seeded Batards - Mix and Fold the Dough

Let's shape, score and bake the first Khorasan Seeded Batard. 

Khorasan Seeded Batards - Shape the Loaves.

ORSW Organic Red Spring Wheat Bread Formula. In this formula I will be using freshly ground wheat berries which have had 7% of the bran extracted from it or what is called 93% extraction rate. I will be using 50% of this wheat flour and 50% of white bread flour. This is a minimal shaped loaf, much like a Ciabatta.  This dough is at 100% hydration. 

Organic Red Spring Wheat @ 100% hydration Formula

Let's start making our lovely high hydration bread. Grind your grain and mix the two flours and the water. 

Organic Red Spring Wheat Bread 1

After autolyse, mix in your starter and then the salt. 

Organic Red Spring Wheat Bread 2

How did the Miche become world famous? Did you know Miche means large country loaf? 

Preview 00:53

This formula is a one day Miche with a pre-ferment. It is around 70% (or more) whole grains depending upon your starter and pre-ferment choices. This Miche is just a little over 1 kilo after being baked. There is a variation that will give you two loaves and a higher percentage of whole grains at around 80% of total flour weight. 

Sourdough Miche Formula 70%+ Whole Grains

With this Miche bread formula, we will be making a pre-ferment first. Have your 100% hydration starter fed the night before. We will be making the pre-ferment first thing in the morning. You will also learn how to figure out the DDT which is the desired dough temperature. It's only an option for the home baker and not really necessary, but fun to know how to do. 

Miche - Mix the Pre-Ferment

Once the pre-ferment is almost done fermening, the whole grain flours are mixed and autolysed for an hour or more. This helps give the flour time to absorb the water, soften the bran and bond the gluten. 

Miche - Autolyse the Whole Grains

Once the pre-ferment and autolysed flours are ready, it's time to combine the two into one dough. 

Miche - Combine the Two Doughs

In this video we will fold the dough as it develops during bulk ferment. Folding the dough gives strength to the dough in a gentle manner. 

Miche - Dough Folding And Bulk Ferment

It's time to shape the Miche and we will be shaping a standard boule which is traditional for the Miche. 

Miche - Let's Shape Our Miche

A Mich is traditionally large, but this particular formula will make a smaller Miche or a large one, if you double the formula. The scoring will be a traditional diamond pattern. The other famous score (which we don't do) is the "P" for Poilane, the baker who made the Miche famous by his method of making this large loaf. 

Preview 01:15

After a day of fermenting, shaping and proofing our loaf, it is ready to bake. 

Miche - Bake the Bread!

There's nothing quite so satisfying as slicing into a fresh loaf of bread... except maybe eating it! Let's slice into our loaf and see how the interior looks. A Miche is commonly a fine grained, hearty loaf with a deep colored crust.

Beetroot bread is so fun and quite the centerpiece! It looks stunning wherever it goes. It is an unusual bread, is moist, somewhat dense and very flavorful. We will use a low hydration motherdough at 50% hydration which is made the night before. 

Beetroot Bread - The Formula

The beets are peeled, baked and pureed the day before the bake. So prepare them and get them into the refrigerator. 

Beetroot Sourdough - Prepare the Beets

The motherdough is at 50% hydration, you will be using some of the beet juice from the baked beets. Make the motherdough the night before and let is set out at room temperature.
