First 100% Rye The Vollkornbrot attacks!

December 8, 2011 - 2:32pm -- Deepak

I'm doing it, my first Fresh loaf post! I've been a regular on this site for almost two years and now it's time.I'm very grateful for everyone's wonderful post and I hope I get some congratulations for this first post because my bread certainly won't be getting any.

I felt it was time to rise to the next level of baking so I chose a Vollkornbrot bread from Peter Reinharts 100% whole grains. The finished product came out as scary as the word "Vollkornbrot" sounds.

Any ideas, suggestions or advice of any kind would be gratefully appreciated.

So I've laid a brick - now what?

I did not see a post about this so I thought I would start one. Namely what to do with your bread when it doesn't come out right. Using the strictly technical and professional term, a brick. This would have to be something beyond bread crumbs. Something you would deposit into your compost pile or trash. I'll start off with three ideas of my own. But hopefully we'll get much more and better ideas from the rest of you.

1. Make bread pudding.

2. Make pancakes.

3. Make Pappa al Pomodoro.
