This loaf, all whole wheat flour, is a quick bread (about 3 hours of prep). It turned into a pretty good sandwich bread, though the crust was tougher than I’d like. I think the whole wheat calls for a lower temperature and softer crust. The whole loaf ended up a bit flat – it fell in the middle of the final rise when I tried to move it. Oh well.
Also pictured is an exciting gift from my sweetheart this Valentine’s day – a bamboo pizza peel for sliding my bread into the oven! It worked beautifully. Thanks honey!
