I made another two small loaves with my brown rice starter. I fed it twice a day for several days, then put half back in the frig and fed it again for another few days to build up to 3 cups of starter.
I love Mary Jane's method of baking these little round loaves in a very hot dutch oven and in two small loaves.
I wanted to bake this with different flours this time to bring down all those carbs from the rice.
So to 3 cups brown rice starter I added 1 cup of golden flaxseed ground, and 2 cups of the white almond flour, a little salt, didn't need any more water-and then let it rise as loaves for a couple hours til I got my dutch ovens up to 500 degrees-I brought out my oven thermometer-they were 500 to 525 degrees. Next time I will know to start out with allot more charcoal to get to that temperature faster.
This for me was my best bread yet-it tasted more like bread to me not doughy like not baked enough-I have been using the thermometer to check the bread and I have been going with 206 degrees I am thinking of going to 210 degrees next time
and being in the dutch ovens my bread browned really nice on its own-could be do to the other ingredients.

Just a note inside these dutch oven I placed parchment paper inside first, then a trivet, and then a pottery pie pan-when hot added the flour and then the bread. You need more coals on the bottom to bake this and just a few coals on top

Your bread looks amazing, and baked outside in a Dutch oven to boot! The coloring is wonderful and the crust looks so crisp and good, while the interior looks moist and fluffy.

The breads look absolutely gorgeous baked in the Dutch Oven. I have my Dutch oven already and I can't wait till I am to the point of baking a loaf in this pan.
