TWD:BWJ WHOLE WHEAT LOAVES
So, after my last complete failure with a recipe from Baking with Julia, I was looking forward to something I couldn't screw up. Well, I spoke, or thought, too soon. I added 1/2 cup too much flour, so I had to go back and add a few TBSP of water to make it a bit more pliable.
Anyway, I opted to make one of my loaves cinnamon raisin swirl, rolling it into a large rectangle, slathering with butter and sprinkling with cinnamon, sugar and raisins. My kids ate it for dessert tonight. We really loved both the plain and cinnamon swirl loaves (my kids preferred the cinnamon swirl treat), and even with my little hiccup, they both rose up and baked up beautifully. A very tender bread, that had a very good flavor. I did not have the malt extract that the recipe called for, but used a TBSP of molasses instead.
This is a pretty easy recipe that I could see myself making again and again. Because of copyright, we are encouraging people to buy the book. But if you want the recipe, go on over to our hosts blog reels. Thanks to Michele and Teresa for hosting.
