Whole Wheat French Bread
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 35 min.
Why is this recipe called whole wheat baguette when it is mostly white flour? Very misleading clickbait. Disappointed in this site
Absolutely wonderful recipe!! A "quarantine favorite! Made a couple of changes..used 2 cups whole wheat and 4 cups unbleached mixed together, then added liquid ingredients all at once and added 1 large egg.. Turned out perfect..will make on a steady basis..
OK. Covid 19. My husband decided to make bread - with this recipe. It was beautiful and delicious. Since it was his first time baking bread, I don't think you can go wrong. I'm keeping the recipe. (I'm in charge of the kitchen!)
Have made this recipe several times with great success! I tweaked it ever so slightly though. I used 2 cups oat flour, 3 1/2 cups bread flour, and 2 cups of whole wheat. I also added another TBSP of raw turbinado sugar, as well as 1 TBSP vital wheat gluten! The oat flour makes it so light, and adds a "nutty flavor, that almost takes on a honey flavor"
I've tried for the first time, and I think I messed up with the flour mix. But anyhow, it came out good. I might need to make another one soon, to see how'd work in right composition. Many thanks!
I am sure that I will make this again....did not get to finish....
Well I have this in the oven right now and the smell is wonderful.....first time that I have ever made my own French bread...I know that it is going to taste wonderful....did not have and stone ground wheat but had some white wheat flour so I mixed what I had with the white flour(unbleached)....I ended up not using as much flour as it called for by probably 1 1/2 cups but it seems to be rising just fine and I kneaded it as much as possible with as much flour as I could without it being too hard....I will let you know how it tastes....I am sure that I will
OH! I also added vital wheat gluten to the dry ingredients.
This has been the best wheat bread recipe I've made!!! Not only was it light, it looked perfect! I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 white. Simply added the ingredients to my bread machine and after rising, I rolled it as per the recipe. I'm making it, again, right now. Thanks!!!
I halved this recipe, I didn't want to go to the store soooo, I went to TOH lol this bread is wonderful! Loved it. I used half flour and half whole wheat white flour. Great bread! Thank you
