Dutch/Flemish whole wheat bread: Recipe wanted.

November 5, 2007 - 12:45pm -- dmsnyder

When visiting Holland and Belgium, we were served an extraorinarily delicious whole wheat bread for breakfast, either sliced loaves or rolls. It was not sourdough. It seemed to be consistant from city to city and between the two countries, so I assume it is "traditional" in the region. I would love to be able to bake it at home, but I've not been able to find a recipe.

 Does anyone know what this bread is called, and does anyone have a recipe for it?

Dutch Oven

August 8, 2007 - 1:36am -- xabanga


I've been meaning to make a no knead bread next for a long time (and hopefully next weekend), but I don't have a dutch oven. I've been meaning to buy one for months (for both baking and regular cooking) but I've been hesitant as to what size to buy. So my question is: what size is your dutch oven? and which size would you recommend for a dutch oven... I've been thinking 5 or 6 quarts.

Please let me know what your opinions are? Thanks!
