Want 100% WW yeasted sandwich loaf
I do plan to get to sourdough one of these days, but in the meantime I'm looking for a 100% - or at least nearly that - whole wheat sandwich loaf. I don't mind a little potato flour or dough enhancer or extra gluten. I do want to produce something with a texture similar to Mrs. Baird's 100% whole wheat bread - i.e. light & fluffy.
Is this something that's easier to produce with a sourdough starter for some reason? Any pointers, or especially recipes would be greatly appreciated. I'd prefer using some folds to a lot of kneading, but will knead if that's the best option. I have the Laurel's Kitchen Bread Book. Should I start with her Loaf for Learning? I know that seems like a Duh! answer, but I'm hoping your collective experience can help me sort out all of the so-called "best sandwich loaf recipes" out there. I also have KAF's recipe for "100% whole wheat sandwich loaf", but have found a real mixed bag of results for this mentioned on the KAF forum.
