[2017-017] Sticky Oatmeal Loaf

(Baked 2/3/17)

This ended up being a particularly sticky loaf, and I had considerable trouble getting it out of the banneton when it was time to bake. Hence, the loaf is a bit malformed. Still, it was moist and delicious and had very good crumb.


  • 500g King Arthur Bread Flour
  • 350g water @ 80°
  • 150g starter @ 70% hydration
  • 12g salt
  • 300g oatmeal porridge (1:1.5 dry to wet by volume)


  • Mixed flour, starter, and 300g water
  • Left to autolyse 30 minutes
  • Mixed in salt + 50g water
  • Turned once
  • Folded in oatmeal
  • Continued turns @ 30 minute intervals
  • Formed loaf and proofed overnight in banneton @ 65°-ish
  • Baked @ 500° covered for 20 minutes (forgot to turn down oven after loaf went in)
  • Baked @ 450° uncovered for 18 more minutes
