It's time again for the next "Healthy Bread in 5" assignment. This week's project was a triplet: 100% Whole Wheat Bread with Olive Oil, Aloo Paratha and Southwest Foccacia with Roasted Corn and Goat Cheese.
I decided to keep it simple this week and only bake the 100% Whole Wheat bread. I wasn't sure if my husband and I would like the other two recipes, so I'll wait and see what the other bloggers say about them.
The 100% Whole Wheat Bread turned out terrific. It was very easy to mix up, and it rose beautifully after an overnight stay in the refrigerator. But instead of olive oil, I ended up using grapeseed oil. Turns out that we ran out of olive oil, and I didn't realize it until I opened up the kitchen cupboards and it was gone. My husband likes to experiment with different cooking oils, so I gave the grapeseed oil a try.
I definitely liked the results. The crust was nice and chewy, and the interior was surprisingly moist for a whole wheat bread. I'll definitely bake up this loaf again.
Please join me in visiting Big Black Dog to see how the other HBin5 bloggers fared with this week's recipes. I'm always so impressed by how beautiful their breads turn out. I'm learning a lot from them!
