Instructions

1. 

Weigh out the dry ingredients (the first 4) into your dough bucket.

2. 

Use a whisk to mix the dry ingredients till uniform

3. 

Warm the honey so it pours easily. Weigh out the water into a pitcher. Slowly add the warm honey to the water while using a stick blender to mix. You don't want the honey to collect on the bottom and become hard to dissolve.

4. 

Add the water and honey to the flour mixture.

5. 

Using your hand, mix the dry and wet ingredients until the flour is fully integrated. Cover and let rest for 20 minutes.

6. 

Flour your work surface and the top of the dough

7. 

Turn dough out onto the work surface

8. 

Dust top of dough with flour.

9. 

Pat out dough

10. 

If using the nuts and/or chocolate chunks, spread them out and press into the dough (amounts are totally up to you).

11. 

Fold one third of dough onto the middle third.

12. 

brush off the loose flour and fold the remaining third onto the two thirds.

13. 

Turn dough 90 degrees and pat out again.

14. 

Fold 1/3 onto the middle.

15. 

Fold remaining third onto two thirds. Repeat steps 9 - 14 without adding more nuts or chocolate. Place into dough bucket, close cover, and let rest 20 minutes.

16. 

Repeat steps 12-14 and let rest 20 minutes again.

17. 

Repeat steps 12 - 14 and let rest 20 minutes again

18. 

Repeat steps 12 - 14 and let rest 2.5 hours. Dough should have risen nicely.

19. 

Turn dough out onto work surface and scale into two equal pieces.

20. 

Shape into boule.

21. 

Dust a banneton with flour (I use a 50/50 mix of all purpose and rice flour).

22. 

Place boules into the baskets, spray lightly with oil, and let raise about an hour and a half.

23. 

Turn dough out onto a peel and score as desired.

24. 

Bake in a preheated 400F oven, with initial steam, for about 30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 200F. Cool very well. Enjoy.
