good bread at last!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After a year of bread baking struggles to create a respectable loaf of bread, and after lots of perseverance and experimentation, I have finally made 3 great loaves of bread in a row!!  I feel like I can finally say that I have some idea what I’m doing with this bread baking thing! Thanks to my smaller, 8.5 x 4.5 in pan and Peter Reinhart’s delayed fermentation recipe from his whole wheat bread cookbook, I’m so pleased!

  1. Thanks 🙂 Diana, I was really trying for an esthetically pleasing loaf and a consistent turnout–sometimes my loaves were flat and stubby and dense, and sometimes ultra fluffy with lots of holes so that it would fall apart when you try to spread stuff on it. These ones have been right in the happy middle of those two extremes.
