  • About

Buy whole-wheat flour where the stock turns over often—a popular health-foods store perhaps—so the flour is fresh. Because whole-wheat flour contains the germ, which is oily it turns rancid quickly.

Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups whole-wheat flour
  • ¾ cup bread flour
  • ¾ cup

Method

Review the steps for bread making before beginning. Combine both flours, the warm water, and the starter in a bowl if you are mixing the dough by hand or in the mixing bowl if you are using a stand mixer.

To mix and knead by hand

Mix the ingredients until the dough comes together. Knead for 7 minutes and let rest,
