Danish Pastry with Sourdough


Working Method

  • Place all the ingredients into the mixing bowl except the Mimetic. Use a spiral mixer for 3 mins slow and 8 mins fast.
  • Let dough rest for 20 mins.
  • Mould the dough into a long billet and bulk in the fridge for 20 mins.
  • Scale the dough into 45g pieces.
  • Take your sheet of Mimetic and stretch it through the rollers of the rondo laminator making it a third longer.
  • Take out your billet of dough from the fridge and pass through the Rondo laminator bringing it down to 10mm. 
  • Place your Mimetic in the centre of the dough and bring the ends over the top of it encasing it inside. 
  • Turn your dough with the centre line facing the rollers of the Rondo. 
  • Now you are ready to make 3 turns. When making the turn, starting with one short side, fold the dough into thirds, like a letter, then turn the dough piece length ways and pass though the Rondo bringing the dough down to 10mm on each turn. Do this 3 times.
  • You can now roll out your billet of Danish pastry to 3-4mm and cut your shapes out to make your required pastries.
  • Prove for 75mins at 30oC and 80% humidity.
