Wheatbread made with Raisin Sourdough

Weizenbrot mit Rosinensauer

After I made the Raisin sourdough I had to bake a bread with it! Because I was not sure how good this would work I decided to do a simple wheat bread with just some seeds added for more flavour. I decided to use roasted sesame and flaxseeds, because that is a combination I like very much.

When kneading the dough could not find a difference to normal dough made with sourdough but the crust get a wonderful dark golden red hue, darker and more shiny then my normal breads. I think that is due to the high sugar amount in the “chef”.

The bread rise good and had a nice open crumb and mild sourdough flavour. Not sour at all, that is how I like my breads!

And like always I sent it to Susans weekly Yeastspotting!

    Your wheat bread with the addition of raisin sounds delicious Stephanie. I like bread like this, it is hearty and healthy with the addition of flax seeds.
