My husband's first loaf

My husband's first loaf

Here it is!  His first loaf from the oven.  Of course, he didn't do everything by himself but it's a good start.  The bread is still warm so I have to sit on my husband to stop him from slicing the bread.  LOL  Thanks LLM777 and Sylvia!

What kind is it?  Tell him he did very well.  It has nice even color and a good height

Thank you!  My husband seemed to be pleased with how the loaf turned out.   He's already talking about making some more next week.  Think I have created a monster for myself. 

Photojess, it's a Russian Black Bread recipe shared by LLM777.  I make a similar loaf except I use sourdough instead of yeast.   My loaf has a much stronger flavor and fluffier texture.

I'm so glad it turned out.  If anyone wants the recipe just search on this sight for  Russian Black Bread under the title "Does this recipe look right?" (It is a bread machine recipe.)

Great Job!
