From all appearances this loaf of sourdough looks like an epic fail. Ahhh, that is until you use perspective.
It was the BEST loaf of crunchy sourdough ever! The reason it fell was due to the type of flour I tried using; Teff.
Teff is an ancient grain from Ethiopia, where they make their beloved Injera. They allow the dough to sit for 3 days and ferment using just the molds floating in the air...this is of course how they acquire different strains of cultures for sourdough. It's spongy and sour. Not only is it delicious but they use it as their utensil for eating, as many Asian cultures do. The Farmer's Daughter spent some time on a photography tour in Ethiopia and she raved about making and eating Injera!
Teff has a mild, nutty flavor and is gluten free. It's high in Calcium, Vit C and Iron. Teff is considered a resistant starch which could benefit blood sugar, weigh and colon health. A resistant starch passes through to the large intestine where it acts like dietary fiber. It's believed that 20-40% of the Carbs in Teff acts as a resistant starch.
My "problem" was that I used 2 oz of Teff in place of Spelt...which I ran out of. I knew once I poured it out from the proofing bowl into the 500*f cast iron pot, that it was not going to work according my expectations. It poured out and went flat and pretty much baked just how it poured!!! I did have a little eternal hope that it would spring back up even a teensy bit. Not happening!
