I’m back with another installment of my Baking Outside My Comfort Zone series, focusing on yeast breads. I think I’m getting the hang of it! Be sure to check out my earlier posts, Good Old American White Rolls and Apple Cranberry Bread.
The holidays are now behind us and the new year has begun. It’s a time of reflection and a time to look to the future with new goals and resolutions. For many of us that means we’re trying to eat healthier. I’m tossing the last of my Christmas candy, eating more salads, and baking whole wheat bread.
My passion for baking supersedes even my desire to shake off the last few pounds of baby weight I’ve been carrying around, and that’s just the way it is. So what’s a girl to do? I feel a lot less guilty with this hearty loaf. It’s easy to bake, tastes great toasted and slathered with jam, and it’s perfect for sandwiches.
I couldn’t hardly wait for this whole wheat loaf to cool before digging in and that first slice hit the spot. Whatever your goals for the new year are, this is a home baked good you can feel good about and enjoy.
