Think you're too much of a loaf to make a good loaf of wholesome bread? Well, you CAN BE! Why buy bread that has all sorts of preservatives and fillers when you can make your own right at home - and easily? We're fortunate to have a wonderful bread company near us that offers us wholesome bread (2Fish Baking Co). But, not everyone has this luxury. When our bread shop is not open I know I can make a great loaf for my family without worry or hassle. This recipe makes it easy by using quick rise yeast and allowing the dough to sit over night or during the day (while at work, for example). There is only one quick moment (15 minutes prior to baking) where you are required to knead the dough. BUT THE KEY to a great, crunchy-on-the-outside, loaf is baking it in a dutch oven. I have a cast iron set by LODGE (Love their stuff) that creates a great hot space to bake my bread and create that down-home crunch and tenderness.
Here is a loaf I made just the other day: A whole wheat loaf for a dinner at friends. Read Below for a "Here's How"
