Sourdough cinnamon buns / juuretisetainast kaneelisaiad


Yes, you can successfully bake cinnamon buns from sourdough - it just takes time! The result is not so airy as with usual yeast dough but more rich and chewy.

Sourdough cinnamon buns (recipe and photos from my book "Küpsetaja käsiraamat")


3,5 dl milk (room temperature)
700 g wheat flour
1 dl sugar
1 egg
10 g salt
10 g cardamom powder
50 g active sourdough starter
100 g cold butter

Filling:
6 tbsp soft butter
6 tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon powder

Glaze:
1 egg
sugar syrup

The morning before baking. Mix milk, flour, sugar, egg, salt, cardamom and starter and leave it on the kitchen table for 30 minutes. Cut butter into cubes and add into the dough. Mix the dough for 10 minutes. Cover the dough with wet kitchen towel (I also add a plastic on top so that the towel would not get too try) and leave in kitchen for 10 hours.

The evening before baking. Mix all filling ingredients. Using the rolling pin, roll out the dough into a retangular piece. Spread the filling and fold the dough into a “business letter” (lift 1/3 to a middle and then the upper 1/3 into the middle – you get in total 3 layers).

With a sharp knife, cut the dough into approximately 4x12 cm pieces. Now make a cut into the piece so that you would get trousers. Twist the “legs” in opposite direction and then also among each other.


Put into muffin papers and leave it overnight to kitchen (cover with wet towel + plastic again).

The baking morning. Glaze the buns with egg and bake in 200 C for 12-15 minutes until brown from top and under. Take from oven and glaze with sugar syrup.


Kaneelisaiad juuretisetainast (retsept ja fotod raamatust "Küpsetaja käsiraamat")


Kaneelisaiu saab teha ka juuretisetainast! Need ei ole küll nii õhulised kui pärmitainast valmistatud küpsetised, kuid see-eest rikkalikud. Tainas sega kokku küpsetamispäevale eelneval hommikul, jäta see päevaks ajaks kerkima ning jätka saiade vormimisega samal õhtul. Küpsetamispäeva hommikul polegi muud jäänud teha kui saiad lihtsalt ahju panna.

3,5 dl piima
700 g nisujahu
1 dl suhkrut
1 muna
10 g soola
10 g kardemoni
50 g aktiivset juuretist
100 g külma võid

Täidis:
6 spl pehmet võid
6 spl suhkrut
2 tl kaneeli

Määrimiseks:
1 muna
suhkrusiirupit

Küpsetamisele eelneval hommikul sega toasoe piim, jahu, suhkur, muna, sool, kardemon ja juuretis ühtlaseks ning jäta lauale 30 minutiks ootele. Lõika külmkapikülm või väikesteks kuubikuteks ning sega tainasse. Sõtku taigent ca 10 minutit. Tee köögirätik märjaks, pigista üleliigne vesi välja, kata sellega taigen, aseta peale lahtiselt kile (et rätik väga ära ei kuivaks) ning jäta 10 tunniks toatemperatuurile ootele.

Küpsetamisele eelneval õhtul sega täidiseained ehk toasoe või, suhkur ja kaneel. Rulli taigen lahti ristkülikukujuliseks tükiks. Määri peale täidis ja rulli taigen pikemast servast kokku.

Palmitsetud kaneelirullideks (nagu fotol) voldi tainas kolmeks kokku nagu ärikiri: tõsta keskmise kolmandiku peale alumine 1/3 tainast ja selle peale ülemine, nii et saaksid kolmekihilise tüki. Lõika terava noaga tainast 4 cm laiused ja 12 cm pikkused ribad. Tee riba keskele üks pikk läbilõige nii nagu lõikaksid igast ribast pika säärega püksid. Keera „püksisääred“ väljapoole keerdu ja siis ka omavahel keerdu. Tõsta küpsetuspaberiga kaetud ahjuplaadile, lahtised otsad põhja alla peites. Jäta ööseks toatemperatuurile (kata taas märja räti ja kilega).

Küpsetamise hommikul pintselda kuklid pealt lahtiklopitud munaga ning küpseta 200-kraadises ahjus 12-15 minutit, kuniks need on pealt ja alt kaunid pruunid. Määri soojad saiad pealt suhkrusiirupiga.

Soolakaramelli jäätis pekanipähklitega / Salted caramel ice cream with pecan nuts - RECIPE

Karamelline ja pehme jäätis kergelt krõmpsuvate pähklitega, üks minu jäätiselemmikutest. Eesti keelne retsept - kliki siia.

----------
This ice cream is soft and caramel-rich enriched with crunchy pecan nuts. It might be a little time-consuming to prepare the caramel base but the result is all worth it.

Ice cream base:
  • 2.5 dl sugar
  • 5 dl 35% cream
  • 1 tsp salt flakes
  • 0,5 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2.5 dl milk
Pecan nuts:
  • 50 g chopped pecans
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp sugar

Put 2 dl sugar into heavy pan and let it melt in medium heat until melted and golden brown. Do not mix with spoon but you can move the pot from one side to another so that all of the sugar would melt.

As soon as everything has melted and is golden brown, pour in 3 dl cream. Be careful as the sugar is extremely hot! Keep heating and mixing it in low heat until everything is smooth. Be patient, it will take around 5-7 minutes. Mix in salt and vanilla extract. Cool down.

Mix egg yolks with the rest of the sugar. Pour milk and the rest of the cream into a pot, heat until boiling and pour into egg yolks (keep on mixing the egg yolks at the same time). Pour back into the pot and heat in low heat, constantly mixing until the mixture reaches 82 degrees C. Take from the heat, pour through the sieve and mix in the caramel. Cool down and let it stay overnight in the fridge.

In the meantime prepare the pecans. Chop them first. Then put butter, sugar and pecans in the pan and heat in medium heat until the pecans get toasted. Chill. Chop into pieces if needed.

Make the ice cream according to your machine instructions and in the end mix in the nuts. Freeze at least 5 hours or better overnight.

P.S. This ice cream is much more liquid than any other normal ice cream, but do not worry, it will freeze nicely.

How to make rye sourdough bread

I have been baking (wheat) sourdough for many years and learned to make rye sourdough only recently. It was quite a challenge for me but combing different methods, I finally succeeded. It's not the most common nor easy method for making rye sourdough but for me it has worked the best. The result is a naturally sweet bread with only a little sugar added (though you can also skip the sugar but I think it gives a good balance to the flavour) and the bread keeps fresh really long (1-1.5 weeks). Because the fermentation time is really long it is more stomach-friendly. To my mind it is more easier to bake (wheat) sourdough but rye bread is a nice change to bake and (to eat).


About the starter
Please note that I am using 100% rye starter to make this bread. I got the starter from my Mum but you can grow it yourself the same method as wheat starter (it only takes a little longer to grow a strong starter plus remember that it needs more water).

About different flours
There are three main types of rye flours in Estonia. I like to combine whole rye with semi-whole rye. I think using only whole rye is too rustic. If I add semi-whole rye to the whole rye, it gives a more airy and light bread. Fine rye has too less flavour for me. We are lucky in Estonia to have local mills to produce fresh rye flour - so naturally I prefer small mills' production which is more fresh.




Day 1 - wake up your starter
Around noon mix 3 tbsp of rye starter with 1 litre of water, add approximately 400 g whole rye flour. The mixture should have a consistency of sour cream. Leave it to a warm place (around 22 C) and put a slightly loose cover on top so that you let some air circulate.

Day 2 - initial dough mixing
In 24-30 hours the starter mixture should have lots of bubbles and is really alive!

Around noon heat 850 ml water until boiling. Put 500 g semi-whole rye flour into mixer bowl, add boiling water and start to mix. The mixture is hot and very sticky. Let the Kitchen Aid do its work until the mixture is fully incorporated and smooth. Let it cool down (it takes about 2 hrs).

Now take 3 tbsp of the starter and put it aside to the fridge for next baking.
Add the rest of the starter mixture to the previous. Mix it really well to get rid of all lumps. I let the mixer do its work about 10 minutes and then continue a bit with hands.
Put the dough into really large bowl as it will start to expand - at least doubling in its size. Cover with a loose cover and let it stand in the room temperature.
In 5 hours it should have doubled in size, mix it with spoon so that it will have original quantity.

Day 3 - fermentation
Mix it with spoon every 5-8 hours (or 3 times a day).

Day 4 - fermentation
You can start dough mixing or you can let the dough ferment one-two days more (the taste will be more sour and mature).

Day 5 - Final dough mixing + baking
Add 3 tsp salt, 3 tsp sugar, 1000 g semi-whole rye flour. Knead really well (this part I like to do with hands), about 8-10 minutes. The dough is ready when you start to hear air bubbles break apart.
Cover the bottom of the metallic tin forms with baking paper (this is important, otherwise it is almost impossible to get the bread out - unless you have some real quality tins though).
Put the dough into forms so that they are filled now more than 2/3.
Make your hands wet and smooth the top of the breads (it will not stick then).
Sprinkle top of the bread with whole flour, cover loosely with cling film. Let it raise for about 5 hours (in a warm place, 22 degrees is just fine), the forms should be full with a slight belly on top of them.

Baking 
Bake 20 minutes in 240 degrees, then 1 hours 30 minutes in 200 degrees. If you see that the top gets too burnt, cover with foil.
Take out from oven, let rest for 10 minutes, then remove from tins. Wrap them in wet cloth so that the crust gets softened.
I start to eat bread the next day only - then it is not too moist inside and has a better texture.

Happy baking!

The recipe is for 2 loaves.
