Thought I’d try my hand at a laminated sourdough leveraging some different techniques than I usually employ.
These techniques involve adding Spelt flour, dividing the dough into two parts adding Turmeric to the second.
I started by mixing the flour with water and letting it autolyse for 2 hours.
I added sourdough levain and salt later about 45 minutes spacing.
I then stretched out the regular and then the yellow hued turmeric dough.
This is where my experiment took an unexpected turn. I’m was meaning to sprinkle cinnamon. Unfortunately, I had left the turmeric on the counter. Yep…Oops!
I didn’t realize my mistake until after lamination.
I sprinkled Cinnamon on top and tried a bit of additional folding. Before putting into my proving box for another 3 hours.
I’m going to do 3 coil folds every hour before shaping and putting into a banneton overnight.
The coil folds develop strength in the dough.
After about three hours and periodic coil folds I have the dough shaped and in the banneton to sit overnight in the fridge.
Well… we’ll see how this experiment turns out tomorrow. To be continued…
