Artisan Breads Every Day - 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread


Another recipe review from Artisan Breads Every Day by Peter Reinhart.

Since we love whole grains, I was especially eager to try this recipe for 100% whole wheat sandwich bread. On the other hand, I wasn't sure it could beat the recipe I usually bake for our daily bread.

We really enjoyed this bread. It made two very large loaves. The flavor was superb. I thought the bread was a little heavier then my usual recipe - then again, I've only made this recipe once and I'm sure it would get better with a little practice.

I replaced 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour with vital gluten. Maybe this was too much. I should have followed Peter's recommendation of also increasing the water.

The conclusion - a recipe with a lot of potential. I wish it were slightly less dense but the flavor was worth making again.
