Pain de Campagne Made With Homemade Bread Starter

Pain de Campagne Made With Homemade Bread Starter

I made a simple pain de campagne (French country-style bread) made with homemade raisin-based yeast (leaven).

Ingredients

Bread (strong) flour
160 g
Whole wheat flour
40 g
Bread starter made with natural yeast
80 g
Salt
4 g
Water
120 ml or so

Steps

1. Put all the ingredients in a bowl and knead. When it comes together, round off into a smooth ball, place in a bowl and leave for the 1st proofing.
2. When the dough has risen, round it off again and put into a well-floured bread rising mold (a banneton) for the 2nd proofing.
3. Take the risen dough out of the banneton, and slash the surface of the dough in a cross pattern or a single slash.
4. Bake in a preheated 240°C oven until well browned.
