Anyone have any tasty, easy bread recipes? Also, if I just want to make the NYT no-knead recipe more healthy can I just use wheat flour?
And I will hi knives asked this before but has anyone made wheat sourdough?

I like the big round crusty loaves if that helps at all?

I wouldn't personally recommend going 100% wheat flour, it's usually pretty common to just mix in a percentage like 70% white/30% wheat. Changing the type of flour will mess with your recipe ratios, though, since wheat flour behaves differently.

As far as an easy, tasty, big round crusty bread recipe, I really like the "Overnight White" for beginners from Ken Forkish's book "Flour Water Salt Yeast".

It's been republished on a bunch of blogs in different variations, like the following:
http://210degrees.blogspot.com/2013...water-salt.html
https://www.karenskitchenstories.co...hite-bread.html
http://bakingartisanbread.blogspot....ry-brown-1.html <--This one uses that 70% white/30% wheat flour ratio I mentioned.

It requires some basic equipment, but it's equipment that every home baker ought to have, such as: a scale, a dutch oven, a bigass tub or bowl for the dough to rise in, and a bench scraper.

If you're using whole wheat you won't be able to as easily do a no kneed. You'll need to kneed a bit at first or do some stretch and folds.

Is that healthier than regular white flour? I'm aiming for healthier recipes and I now notice the word healthy isn't in my original post.

It's totally possible to get a 100% wheat no-Knead bread. It will be dense, but it will still give a nice boule. Adding vital wheat gluten helps.

Look for The New Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day's 100% Whole Wheat recipe. The master recipe is nearly the same, but a 70/30 wheat/white ratio. (Made this week after I got the book from the library and it's a keeper.)

There's also a number of mom blogs with nearly identical no-Knead whole wheat sandwich loaf recipes too.

No real difference. Just higher protein (gluten) which makes better bread. Good wheat flour (especially part whole meal) is not unhealthy.

FYI some lots of King Arthur got recalled for E. coli

Press releases posted:


The only product affected by this voluntary recall is our Unbleached All-Purpose Flour (5 lb.) from these six specific lot codes and three Best Used by Dates, which can be found on the bottom of the side panel, below the nutrition facts panel.


BEST USED BY 12/07/19 LOT: L18A07C
BEST USED BY 12/08/19 LOTS: L18A08A, L18A08B

My date code was stamped on the front panel near the top, so look around if you don't see it.

Hi Bread Thread, newish bread baker with a storage/preservation question:
Iíve been really enjoying this King Arthur no-knead crusty white bread recipe (which is super tasty!) but I have no clue how I should be storing it after. Is there any particular container/wrap I should be using? Iíve tried aluminum foil and paper bags so far but I feel like the only way to get it crusty again is to toast it (which is also super tasty!). Any tips for longer-lasting ďjust bakedĒ crustiness?

Obligatory pics (Iím working on not over-flouring the crust, this is one of my earlier batches):

Let me axe you just one question.

Make sure it has actually reached room temperature before wrapping it. Unless you're freezing it keep it at room temperature somewhere dry, in a paper bag or wrapped in something that can breathe (ie not cling film or tightly wrapped aluminium foil or whatever). I don't think there's any way to keep it exactly as it is after baking, but unless your home is particularly humid it should still stay nice and crusty.

Yoooo does anyone have a killer pain de mie/pullman loaf recipe they love? I want to start baking our sandwiches loaves regularly and would love something that is a bit healthier than one with just pure white flour. I kinda fell off the sourdough train and don't see myself maintaining a starter again, but could possibly get one going again if that's the best way to do it. It's also kind of unbelievable how hard it is to find a pullman loaf tin with a lid that's not a bizarre knockoff brand on amazon!

Honestly I've never tried whole wheating it up but I like hokaido milk bread in a Pullman. Quite enriched, most recipes are a little sweet imho. I do Demi bags for sourdough subs since you really want that crust.

Hey yíall, If I make my own yogurt and I wanted to try making bread, can I use some of the yogurt as a starter? Would I still have to add dry yeast?

It seems unlikely to me that yogurt would have the strength to rise bread on its own, but I don't really know. You can always just make two batches (or split one) and put dry yeast in one and not the other. Flour and water are cheap, so it's not a huge shame to waste one loaf in the interest of science.

This site says you can do it but you'll need a teensy bit of yeast. It's also a no knead recipe so that should be very simple to try.

Also I want to start making my own yogurt one of these days, and yogurt bread does sound like a nice trick.

I ended up just following the king arthur no knead recipe. Bread is so easy to make oh god why haven't I done this before.

after the first bite:


It came out as a kind of misshapen foot shaped thing, next time more flour when shaping it, less on top. I still have dough for another loaf in the fridge to devour test with.

e: it is entirely gone 20 minutes late oh dear what have i done

I have to make myself freeze it or else it's all gone immediately.

It was so hard to make myself wait on this sandwich loaf to cool to slice it and then there was definitely less left than I'd planned to save for later.
