First loaf with Whole Wheat Berries

I love the way this sourdough WW bread came out. It has whole wheat berries (soaked briefly in hot water), whole flax seeds, molasses for color, honey, whole wheat and whole wheat white flour. It is 100% whole wheat without any VWG. I was thrilled with the complex flavors. Made two loaves, one with butter on top, one without to see how the different crusts would taste. Haven't cut the second open because we'll be eating it with Christmas dinner with the parents tonight.

Now on to the traditional Finnish Pulla (I'm Finnish) to practice braiding and a sweet potato  cinnamon pecan sticky bun for mom's birthday tomorrow.

Merry Christmas!Whole wheat berry bread
