On week 3 of keeping a new Kamut mother, it seemed pretty active and bubbly, so I decided to give batter breads a go. I had a feeling that my mother wasn't quite active enough to rise the breads to the edge of the pan, but I wanted to see how much rise I could get out of them.
Here is my mother the morning of Bake Day:
Here are the loaves right after they went into the proofer:
See the little bubbles already forming on the top?
2 hours in the proofer:
4 hours in the proofer:
5 hours in the proofer:
Note that not much rising occurred between the 4 hour and 5 hour mark, and a couple of the bubbles in the center look like they might deflate if left longer. This was my cue that it was time to bake them.
