Tuesdays With Dorie — Country Bread


photo-3countrybreadHappy New Year, everybody! Today's recipe was an easy yeast loaf. It used a sponge and a fair amount of whole wheat and rye flour, which helped give it flavor. It made a very large loaf. I would probably split the dough to make two loaves next time. We ate it with a sausage and lentil stew. It was also tasty by itself, slathered with butter!

What did you guys think of it?

    You’ve baked a wonderful loaf!
    I do agree: 2 smaller loaves next time – because there will definitely be a “next time”

  11. Your bread looks perfect! And that stew looks fabulous – I’m sure they went great together. I gave half of our loaf away, it was so huge.

  12. Your loaf looks so beautiful – the texture especially. I used this to make toast and a pretty delicious grilled cheese. I thought it was a very versatile recipe.

  13. Your bread looks great…so does your stew. We had the bread with a hearty sweet potato and peanut soup.
