Simple Whole Wheat Bread
Regular readers of my blog would notice that there are hardly any posts on bread. My last entry was about 1 year ago, and that shows how "interested" I am in bread-making. I did not feel like trying out any bread recipes, due to the fact that previous attempts have not been very successful, and besides, to knead and perspire in the current super hot and humid weather is simply unthinkable.
But I changed my mind when I read about a certain bread recipe that is easy to prepare and yet it yields a satisfying result, and since then, I could not get the picture of that perfectly raised bread out of my head.
Yesterday, I was still thinking about the bread during Japanese lesson, and immediately after class, I went to buy a pack of whole wheat flour and gave the recipe a try at night.
I'm pleasantly surprised that I merely spent 3 hours (that includes baking time) and I could have a loaf of yummy bread for breakfast this morning. What I like about the recipe is that it does not require lengthy kneading process. In fact, all it needs is a few minutes of kneading by hand and it's ready for proofing!
By the way, the top of the bread is uneven because I forgot to shape it properly before the dough went for second proofing. I guess it does not matter at all, as the bread is still yummy nonetheless! :-)
