Whole Grain Artisan Bread

23 comments /

It seems like a long time since I posted my last yeast bread...I guess cuz it has been.  Hmmm (easy explanation).  Well, don't worry...I haven't given up bread ; )

This Whole Grain Artisan Bread from Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day is a great all-around bread dough (and a Master Recipe from the book).  I love slicing it for sammies, ripping it off for sopping up lovely juices or soups and forming it into pizza dough...it's fantastic!
I'm going to give you the link for the Whole Grain Artisan Bread recipe at the Healthy Bread in Five website...because it's long...and I'm lazy.  Far too lazy to write it out...but I'll show you some highlights.
The beautiful rise...works every time!

Free-form baguettes rising

I wanted to add some gorgeous sea salt to the top...

Oh, Yeah!

Check out that nice crumb!



Can't you just smell it!?  This is a fabulous book for both beginners and advanced bakers, alike.  I recommend it to anyone who loves the smell of fresh baked bread permeating their kitchen!  I'm gonna try to add this to the bread braid for HBin5, hosted by Michelle of Big Black Dog...except that the braid for this particular bread was waaaaay back in January (while I was on hiatus)...time for me to get baking so I can catch up!
This bread has been YEASTSPOTTED!

I am also linking this to Chaya for her Meatless Mondays over at My Sweet and Savory. ...and to Laura of Hey What's for Dinner Mom's Just Another Meatless Monday!

  1. I am sure, this is what bread is supposed to be like. I can smell the aroma wafting through the air and I am getting hungry.

    Thanks for linking this to My Meatless Mondays. You were right behind me on line. I just got the link up. We can all learn from you.

    If you didn't read it, please go back and read about our wonderful Joanne and Mark Bittman. You will know the post by its title. I think it is right after My Meatless Mondays.

  2. Your artisan bread looks professionally baked. Like the sea salt flakes you use here.

  9. Could you get me any closer with that first photo :) I might take a big ole bite!

    I have been making gluten free breads, which are okay, but gosh what I would give for a hunk of that with some good garlic butter!
