Another year is upon us. Even in the midst of all the uncertainty in this country and in the world, I’m looking forward to this year. It’s another year to celebrate the staff of life.
I find that when I’m baking bread, the cares of the world just slip away. It is a very satisfying and rewarding experience and a great way to bless others.
So to start the new year off, I offer a toast…
This delicious whole wheat bread is made with home-milled whole wheat flour so it has a sweet wheat flavor. It is made with a whole wheat sponge, rye flour and white bread flour. It tastes great plain, but even better toasted and spread with butter or jam.
- 300 g (1 3/4 cups) whole wheat flour
- 24 g (~3/4 tablespoon) honey
- 300 ml (1 1/4 cups) water
