Adding Sweetener to Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread

November 10, 2009 - 3:53am -- sewcial

Now that I have made a white naturally yeasted bread, I want to try one with mostly whole wheat flour. I have been searching the forums because I thought I had read something about sweeteners and whether they affected the whole grain breads adversely. I usually prefer a touch of sweetness to my whole grain breads so I am thinking of adding a bit of sugar to a basic whole wheat sourdough recipe (not sour tasting, but leavened with a starter).
