Sweet Sunny South

003

Pecans are a Southern staple, and with the addition of crunchy cornmeal to brighten up the crumb, this bread is sure to put a smile on your face. Cut a warm slice of antiquity and raise a glass of sweet tea. The Baker’s Percentage for this bread is as follows:

Total Flour                          1,000 g                        100%

White Flour                           900 g                          90%

Whole-wheat Flour              100 g                          10%

Pecans, roasted                   200 g                          20%

Coarse Cornmeal                 100 g                         10%

Levain                                    200 g                          20%

Water                                     700 g                          70%

Salt                                          22 g                            2.2%

At least an hour before you mix the dough, roast the pecans in a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Add the pecans and the cornmeal in at the Mix and continue on through the Bake.

This bread is surprisingly good with peanut butter, or better yet, peach jam. Just don’t forget that Southern hospitality when pulling these belles from the oven.
