I had promised to post this recipe for ehanner so here it is. This is the “brown” bread my grandmother used to make which we all loved so much. She passed away 25 years ago and I never thought I would taste it again.
There was a comment in the "you know you're a bread baker" thread about feeling like you're "cheating" when you make a yeasted dough.
But... there's something awfully nice (and FAST!) about a comforting loaf of sandwich bread
Has anyone made or does anyone have a whole wheat baguette recipe? We found this awsome bakery today (in a neighbouring town) and decided to check it out! They had these beautibul looking 100% whole Wheat sourdough baguettes. Didn't buy any as I had made so much bread yesterday, but now I'm thinking I should have bought one loaf :(
I just baked my first 100% whole wheat bread using the BBA formula. It rose decently to the top of the pan but the instant I moved it it deflated to half it's previous size. I waited for both loaves to recover but they only partially came back so I gently placed them into the oven where they had a race for the bottom. My daughter says they taste OK but as soon as they cool completely I'll be able to use them as tire blocks to keep the car from rolling.
