2 nice rustic bread loaves
« on: April 06, 2012, 01:43:58 PM »


Looks great but doesn't smell as good as the vermont sourdough, I was disappointed with the smell and taste in general. Maybe I didn't put enough salt in it, or maybe my growing preference for sourdough clouds my view, I'm not sure. Either way, the bread is nice but it was a bit too wet

Crumb shot:



I think I even added more % wholegrain wheat than used in the recipe because the dough was too wet to work with and I was out of white flour at that moment.

Looking good Jeff!! dont be so hard on you and your bread and it is
unfair to compare it to VT Sourdough!

They do look like nice loaves; they have certainly opened well in the oven. I think you maybe are being too hard on yourself, comparing it to a sourdough. I too prefer the Vermont Sourdough to this Rustic Bread; I also prefer doughnuts to jam tarts, but they're not trying to be the same thing.

Thanks guys, too bad I can't let you taste it, that would be really nice so we could evaluate each other's loaves  without only using pictures :)
I do think next time I bake bread without the mellow baker recipes, it'll be sourdough again. I'm hooked! (Now I just need to sell it to my girlfriend...)

They look really nice both loaves. Love that scoring. Lack of flavour is a problem with this bread.
