These loaves came out so much better than the last batch I made. I used 3 cups of whole wheat flour and 9 cups of white flour this time (vs. all whole wheat flour last time). The dough was easier to shape, knead, and it raised much better.
This is the obligatory round loaf (I only have three loaf pans). I slit the top prior to baking and sprinkled it with sel gris (gray sea salt). I can hardly wait to tuck into this loaf but it will wait until we have pasta or something.
I am very pleased with how this batch came out. And making bread really is very easy.
