Whole wheat bread.

I was making Reinhardt's Transition Whole Wheat bread. Preheated my oven to 425 F and forget to reduce to 350 F. Created ballast for my garbage can. During baking, I wondered why my oven smelled of burned bread. Thought it needed cleaning.


New batch is under way. By evening I'll have an unscorched loaf.

When your family is out of bread, and you decide to bake up a loaf in the evening when you get home from work, and you didn't sleep particularly well for the last five nights because your wife is 3,000 miles away house hunting, and you put the bread in the oven at 11pm, and you sit down on the couch to read a book while it bakes ...

DON'T FALL ASLEEP AND WAKE UP THREE HOURS LATER.

I'd include pictures of the poor blackened loaf if my wife didn't have the camera. But talk about a crispy crust!!! (too bad it's inedible ....)
