Michael and I made some bread today. Neither of us had ever made anything but white bread, so we're starting our new bread making dreams with whole wheat. We each tried a different basic recipe and varied a few other steps of the process. My dough was enough for three loaves so I put two in loaf pans, and made the third into a round loaf, which turned out very flat.

We put sunflower seeds, oats, flax seeds, and raisins in the dough. We learned a few things: put more raisin in, always go with your gizzard, proof your yeast (michael!), and wheat just doesn't taste as good as white.
