Just wondering if anyone tried the WW Bread recipe in ME News a couple issues ago. 

I tried recipe twice with no luck.  Let me know your results.

My attempt produced a whole wheat brick, tasty brick, but DENSE.  I bought the book, European Peasant Bread has been a staple in my house since.  I modified the recipe a bit.  I'm sorry, but 100% whole wheat bread just isn't a soul satisfying bread.

5 cups all purpose flour

1/2 cup wheat flour

1/2 cup rye flour

3 Tbsp wheat bran

1 1/2 Tbsp Salt

1 1/2 Tbsp Yeast

3 cups warm water


Mix flours, bran and salt in large bowl, dissolve yeast in water, mix, cover and let rise 2 hours.  Refridgerate or go for it.  bake at 400 degrees 35 minutes. Makes 2 nice size loaves.
