100% Biga method, let the toast grow taller

March 5, 2023
The 100% Biga method is a revolutionary baking technique that allows you to make the perfect toast and let it grow taller. It is an Italian bread-making technique that uses a biga, or pre-ferment, to give the dough more flavor, structure and elasticity. This method also helps to make the toast lighter and fluffier, making it easier to spread butter or jam on. With this method, you can create delicious toast with a beautiful crust and soft crumb that will have your family and friends begging for more!

Biga species: 250 grams of high-gluten flour, 160 grams of milk, 20 grams of protein, 2 grams of yeast

Main dough: 20g protein, 1g yeast, 15g milk powder, 20g butter

Mix all the ingredients in the Biga, and knead into a dough.

Ferment at room temperature for three hours, or at room temperature for one hour, and put it in the refrigerator for 12-18 hours

After the Biga mix is fermented, the internal organization becomes a hornet's honeycomb.

Tear the middle seed into small pieces, mix with the main dough except butter and salt, and knead the other ingredients to form a rough film, then add salt and butter to knead the glove film, and perform a round of fermentation for 30 minutes, no need to double the size.

After the dough is fermented, deflate it, divide it into two equal parts, roll into a ball, and let it rest for 15 minutes.
