Wait A Millet

004

Millet is a small, round, yellow grain that has been around for more than six thousand years. This bread is so good it won’t be around nearly that long. Toasting the millet before mixing it into the dough improves its taste considerably. Fennel seeds and wheat germ make for tasty additions. The Baker’s Percentage for this bread is as follows:

Total Flour                             1000 g                                   100%

White Flour                             900 g                                     90%

Whole-Wheat Flour               100 g                                     10%

Millet, Toasted                        100 g                                     10%

Fennel Seeds, Toasted           15 g                                     1.5%

Toasted Wheat Germ             50 g                                       5%

Levain                                     200 g                                      20%

Water                                      700 g                                      70%

Salt                                           24 g                                      2.4%

The grains in this bread will moisten as the dough ferments, so there is no need for a soaker. Add the millet, fennel seeds, and wheat germ in at the Mix and continue on through the Bake.

A distinctly tasty bread, enjoy it as you wish.
