I was really excited when this next bread was next in line for the Breadbakers Apprentice Challege. I really like the nutty, earthy, and wheaty taste of whole wheat, but this bread was NOT the kind of wheat bread for wheat lovers like me. However, if you are into a wheat bread that only slightly resembles wheat, then this is the bread for you. I found the taste and texture more like a white bread with only a hint of wheat flavor and a little honey.
Here are the ingredients:
1-1/4 cups water, at room temperature
2 tablespoons shortening
3 tablespoons non-fat dry milk
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons honey
2-1/2 cups bread flour
1-1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 cup of Adam(my wild yeast)
The First Rise
I then divided the dough and made two loaves in 8.5 inch loaf pans.
The golden color was a beautiful sight. Should this photo be yeastpotted?
The crumb wasn't too bad either.
