Whole Wheat Boule
Author: 
Serves: 1 boule
 
Cuisinicity Tip: Make sure the water is not actually hot or the yeast won’t rise as well! Cuisinicity Tip2 : To measure the flour, always use dry measuring cups and do NOT pack the flour! Your dry cup should be filled so that the flour stays light and fluffy and you should use a knife to level the flour across the measuring cup to get rid of excess on top.
Ingredients
  • “sponge”
  • ½ cup lukewarm water*
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 3 tsp dry yeast
  • Remaining Ingredients
  • 1 cup lukewarm water*
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Place ½ cup of lukewarm water* in a small cup and add the sugar and active yeast, stir and let sit for 5-8 minutes until the yeast becomes foamy. It will double in size.
  3. While the yeast is rising, pour the remaining cup of lukewarm water in the bowl of a stand electric mixer fitted with a dough hook and add olive oil and whole wheat flour.
  4. Add the foamy yeast mixture to the remaining ingredients and turn on the mixer on low speed until the dough forms a ball.
  5. Turn up the speed to medium for an additional minute. The dough will appear sticky at first, but be patient, within 2 minutes it will form a perfect ball!
  6. Take out the sought and sprinkle with a little dusting of flour (less than 1 Tbsp) so your hands won’t stick to it.
  7. Gently shape the dough into a large ball and place it on a non-stick baking sheet dusted with a little flour and cover loosely with a clean hand-towel.
  8. Let rise for 30 minutes.
  9. When ready, uncover the dough and place in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.
