BREAD WITH APPLES AND SEEDS
For mashed apple. Peel and cut two apples, add 3-4 spoons of water and bring it to boil. Cook for 10 minutes, squeeze with a fork and let it cool.
Knead by hand or with a stand mixer the whole wheat and spelt flour, the mother yeast, the diastase malt, maple syrup, the warm mashed apple, water and salt for 5-7 minutes.
On the floured pastry board spread out the dough. In the centre add all the seeds and knead until all the seeds will be blended. Make a pat, cover it with a wet rag or clingfilm, and let it rise to a temperature of 24°C.
When the dough will be doubled in size (4-5 hours or so) cut the surface.
Preheat the oven to 240°C, lay the bread down on the baking tray with some water and bake for 15 minutes. Decrease the temperature to 220°C and bake it for 25 minutes. Let it cool on a grill.
