TWD - Whole Wheat Loaves

Turns out I'm kind of lazy and that I get overwhelmed easily. Luckily I've made this bread before so my laziness and being easily overwhelmed doesn't really affect this week's post. Oh ya, I have memory problems too. I think it was one of the first recipes I made out of the book sometime last year, but I only think that because when I went to take a gander at the recipe, someone (probably me) had wrote "good" next to the title.

So now I'm going to go look for some pictures and try to see if I have any other thoughts or memories that pop up so I can say something else about this loaf of bread.

Found one!

Boy they do look good!

According to the date on the picture, I made these bad boys on January 8, 2012. That's clearly not last year but I do still think they where some of the first recipes I had made. In the same picture folder are some brioche loaves. I do remember those because they were a pain in the ass to make! Later the brioche became bread pudding and that was some dang good bread pudding.

Those are some fancy, granny rolls.

So going on the "good" statement I'm going to recommend you try these out. I don't write "good" on just anything (I don't think anyway, hard to tell since I really can't remember). The recipe calls for malt extract and I'm pretty sure I used a one-to-one exchange of molasses instead, because until yesterday I've never owned malt. And once again, "good" means the molasses must have worked out.

Veggie num num and The Family That Bakes Together can provide a much better synopsis of this bread. I think aroma was mentioned and some other niceties that probably make this recipe actually sound more appealing than just "good".

See? Good.


  1. That's an awesome label system! I'm glad you'd already made these so that this week didn't get too overwhelming.

  2. This is the funniest post I've read this round. Thank goodness for notes, because our memories grow ever more fallible! :)

  3. You know, I often write cryptic notes on recipes and sometimes I just have no idea what the heck I meant at the time.

  4. Looks like you have made many good looking loaves of bread. Way to go.

  5. Ha! I do the same and sometimes when I make it again I wonder why I wrote that it was good - ha haa. Your brioche rolls looks awesome ~ love bread pudding!

  6. It was probably more pleasant to made this in January than late summer too. Hopefully it was "good" enough to make again!

  7. I have tried several times to write something next to a recipe in this book and then I stop and think "do I want to write in this beautiful book." YES, I do -- and I am going to. Thanks for the inspiration. And -- this recipe really is good :)

    1. I used to be that way and am with most books, but this one I forced myself to make notes and I'm glad I did ;)
