What Does Hydration Mean – in Baking Terms? (This is an excerpt from my Sourdough Bread Baking 101 course)

Hydration, in bread baking terms, means how much water or liquid there is in a given amount of flour, or the ratio of water to flour weight. More water means a higher hydration or wetter dough. Less water means a lower hydration or drier, stiffer dough. Understanding hydration allows a baker to know approximately how wet or dry dough will be. An average lower hydration dough might be around 60% – 64% hydration (an average hydration used in large scale bakeries). Wet high hydration Ciabatta dough might be around 75 %- 85% hydration.

My sixth baking course called, “Learn to Bake Magnificent Challah,” has launched!
In this new course I cover three types of Challah, a commercially yeasted dessert Challah, a hybrid Challah using both commercial yeast and sourdough and a sourdough only Challah. The course took me many months of testing with help from a group of formula testers (photos from the test bakers are included in the course).
Here are a collection of Sourdough Baking Technique videos about “The Dough,” all in one place. I thought it would be a good idea to have a list of videos and resources for baking techniques in one post so that you can bookmark it or share it with a new baker. However, one post would be too long, so I am breaking it up into three posts. This post will deal with techniques for The Dough. I will do a second post for Baking Equipment Ideas and a third post for Assorted Baking Techniques. READ MORE »

It was a wonderfully sunny day on this island so I named this bread Sunny Sourdough. Sunny sourdough is made with motherdough that has been aged at least 3 – 5 days. I had some 60% motherdough that was two weeks old and I wanted to use it so I made this bread.
I have a dear friend who is fighting cancer. The chemo treatments leave her unable to eat much but she loves eating my sourdough bread. So I have formulated this bread just for her. It is the white counterpart to Pink Wig bread which was also formulated for a woman fighting cancer (it is a whole wheat version). READ MORE »
