So now that it is summer, I have a ton more time to cook and bake! I'm still doing camp but I have way less work to take home with me. Camp has been really great so far. I am the director for three park district camps and they have all been amazing! The site directors and counselors are doing a fantastic job and that makes my job even easier!
Today I am going to tell you about my latest obsession: bread! I got a bread maker at one of the wedding showers and I have been totally obsessed. I also got a bread making cookbook. I have already tagged multiple pages of recipes I want to try. The first loaf I decided to go with was a 1 pound whole wheat loaf. It came out amazing and I promptly announced that we were done buying bread!
Whole Wheat Bread in a Bread Machine
I used King Arthur white whole wheat flour and bread machine quick rise yeast.
This was also a honey whole wheat recipe and I really liked the flavor. I went with the dark crust option and I think I'm the future I'll go with medium. I also didn't take the paddle out after the mixing stages and I ended up with a hole in the bottom of the loaf. Next time I'll change that as well.
If anyone has any suggestions for me on what I should make or technical things, I'd love to hear it!
