Whoa. I made SANDWICH BREAD!
I know, most of you have gotten used to the miracle of bread.
( Says the lady who had NEVER USED YEAST until a few weeks ago, and who didn't even own a wooden spoon. Or a loaf pan.)
I made buttermik bread with 50% whole wheat - what an amazing rise, the bread is mostly fluffy, smells great. I haven't had it yet as the it came out of the ove naround midnight last night :-)
I can't believe I made something that resembles store bought in form and function, but that I actually made! I think i get nearly as much of a kick from baking bread as i do from growing children.
Quick question : what should the internal temperature of the bread be when I take it out? The crumb is moist but looks a bit too moist, almost. The dough was stiff ( I added water to it ) so I'm surprised with how soft the crumb is.
