Everyday Whole-Wheat Bread
Nancy Baggett's new book, Kneadlessly Simple, is getting a lot of attention right now.
Eating Well Magazine featured entire article, including the recipe for this Everyday Whole-Wheat Bread.
It's very easy. Yesterday afternoon, I stirred the ingredients together using my very sturdy dough whisk. I covered the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit in the counter overnight. This morning, I scraped it into a loaf pan, patted the top to be more-or-less smooth and let it rise until it came just above the edge of the pan. It baked for a little over an hour, while I tried to be patient and not eat breakfast.
It was worth the wait. It's quite good. I'll definitely make it again and again. I'm also going to try at least one other recipe from the Eating Well article, and a couple that are on Serious Eats.
I'm sure some people wouldn't buy a cookbook when so many of the recipes are available online. Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? Wait. Maybe that's different. Anyhow, for me, testing the recipes and knowing how good they are only makes me want it more.
