Today´s recipe for the Tuesdays with Dorie group is Whole Wheat Bread. It is nice to be baking bread. And it is nice to be baking bread with honey from a beekeeper that you know and sugar beet molasses (instead of malt extract) from a local company.
Craig Kominiak is the contributing baker for this recipe and it is a straightforward recipe, not difficult at all to follow the few steps required to bake this bread. The ingredients are but a few, namely yeast, honey, bread flour, whole wheat flour, a bit of oil (I used sunflower oil) malt extract (which can be substituted with molasses) and some fine sea salt. The honey flavor sweetens the baked loaves so that they are not only healthy to eat, but delicious, too.
The bread can be enjoyed fresh or toasted with just some good quality butter and maybe some honey or you can use it for preparing your favorite sandwiches.
We liked this bread and I certainly appreciated the process of baking these Whole Wheat Loaves. We all loved the wonderful smell emanating from the oven while the two breads were baking. The crust is light and the inside is soft with a slightly sweet taste.
Wonderful bread - light, tasty, and easy to make.
The hostesses for today´s recipe are Teresa of The Family That Bakes Together and Michele of Veggie Num Nums. A great big “Thank You” to both of them!
