20 Pound Bread Flour Project, Loaves 9-10 [Oct. 18th, 2006|12:00 am]

Ok, this was an experiment that went ok but could have been better. I wanted to try a rye marble loaf, so after browsing some recipes I frankensteined this up. Two batches, both with 3 oz of rye flour and the rest high gluten bread flour. One batch was just a rye dough, the other I added some powdered cocoa and dark corn syrup to (called for malassas, didn't have it on hand and didn't want to shop). After the first proof I divided both doughs in half, kneaded a bit then rolled out. I lay one on top of the other, and rolled it up like a jellyroll, then formed a boule. One had the dark dough on the outside, the other the light. This would have been much better in the bread pan, but such is life. I think it came out quite well considering it was my first marbled bread attempt, and I'll try it again in a loaf pan later. I haven't had any yet, but the wife says it tastes good (she liked yesterdays loaf better.)

So, the cocoa and molasses were added to one of the rye marbles? Or became its own marble?
