Whole Wheat

You guessed it; I made whole wheat bread. I've actually made it three times already, but its a little more finnicky than the sourdough so I'm just now getting the hang of it. I love how it tastes-- grainy and a little sweet, thanks to the brown sugar. I think I prefer the taste of whole wheat over the sourdough, but I love the lightness (is that a word?) and texture of the sourdough over the dense whole wheat. I'm never satisfied;)

I seriously love baking bread for Deric's sandwiches, breakfast sandwiches (fried egg & bacon on wheat: yum!) and to accompany chili, etc. (Deric just told me he loves it too. I already knew that, seeing as he's forever eating it and asking me to make more. I think he just wants to be included in the post.) To make him feel included, I'll go ahead and show you one of my favorite pictures of him...

Isn't he handsome?! I certainly think so.


  1. Yes, he is handsome :) and your bread looks divine!

  2. That is a fabulous looking loaf of whole wheat bread. Way to go. Next to try... Irish Soda Bread. Deric might propose all over again.
