Whole wheat bread with Poolish

Last weekend I was very busy baking Foccaica, Bauernbrötchen nach Bäcker Süpke and two whole wheat breads. Our freezer is still filled with bread that has to be eaten first, so this weekend I can concentrated on updating my blog.

The poolish in the recipe for the whole wheat bread makes a very tasty and airy bread.

Whole wheat bread with Poolish


  • 390g water
  • 390g flour (Type 550)
  • 0,5g fresh yeast


  • whole Poolish
  • 1 kg wheat, fresh grounded
  • 28g salt
  • 520g water
  • 15g fresh yeast

Mix water, flour and yeast for the poolish and ferment it overnight (12 to 16 hours).
