It's from a book by the same authors so I'd say yes, and I totally agree. It is awesome!!

I'm also at altitude (about 7000 ft above sea level)....can that be causing this? I haven't added any extra gluten to my bread, would that help you think?

FWIW, I'm using freshly milled (I grind it just before making it) spelt flour. All the rest of the ingredients I use the same as instructed.

Thoughts?
Spelt has softer and less elastic gluten than wheat does, so that could be part of the problem. It would probably be worth trying with some added gluten.

The altitute could also be contributing. How would you normally adjust a bread recipe for high altitude?

(clickable thumbnails)

Loaf from the 'fresh' milled flour: (I don't have a peel yet, and it stuck to the suface a bit and deformed from the circle when I put it in the oven)


What it looked like on the inside:



It was nice and crunchy on the outside, and soft on the inside. It was declared to be 'yum' by my dh.

I was a bit skeptical when I took the dough out of the jar. It 'broke' off really easily - the gluten was not developed at all, and I was concerned it would be flattened brick of dough after I baked it. It turned out pretty well (though it wasn't 'holey' like I'd expect with white flour).

I have one complaint.

The 'carefully pour the hot water' instruction. eeeek! I didn't pour the entire cup before I had to QUICKLY shut the oven door so as to avoid a steam burn. Scary stuff!

I have just been throwing a little extra flour down on the baking stone and it has not stuck. My second loaf was much yummier than my first - the first was a bit heavy. It has a wonderful flavor

I'm making the pizza today too. Can't wait.

I bought the book on Wed from Amazon and it came yesterday. I skimmed it and am so excited about this book and all the recipes. I think I'm going to try the WW sandwich bread....if there is room in my fridge. Has anyone frozen a baked loaf of sandwich bread yet and then tried it? Just wondering how well it freezes.

Leah, I had NO idea that was from the same book! When i posted this I remembered your thread about a No-knead WW bread but I did not realize it was from a book and I surely did not remember all that because I never got to try it .
Reading your post then I did not realize the whole thing about keeping dough refrigerated ahead of time (which is what attracted me to this recipe, not the no-knead part (which I don't mind doing))...
I hope you can understand my mistake and forgive me. I did not mean to steal your thunder and by no means would I have started a thread about it if I knew yours was about the same book!

Anyway,
I hope you understand my mistake
