Baking with Julia - Whole Wheat Bread
This week was another bread recipe which I was really happy about. Bread in general makes me happy! As with the White Loaves recipe from way back in February this was an easy to put together loaf which baked up perfectly.
I knew I wouldn't be using molasses or malt extract (I'm trying to avoid buying ingredients that won't get used regularly) but didn't worry because I always have treacle in the pantry. Except this time I didn't. Oops. So I subbed golden syrup for both the honey and the malt extract and got a gorgeously golden and slightly sweet loaf that we all loved.
As usual I snagged the crust while it was still warm and enjoyed it with a smearing of butter. You really can't beat homemade bread fresh from the oven!
I cut and froze most of the 2 loaves, using most of it for toast and it was fabulous.
This recipe is definitely a keeper!
Our hosts this week are Michele of Veggie Num Nums and Teresa of The Family That Bakes Together. They will post the recipe for this lovely loaf so make sure you check it out!
