Next up on the BBA list: Light Wheat Bread. I was so excited to finally make a loaf of bread. We’ve made rolls, English muffins, crackers, and so much more but no regular sandwich bread.

The idea of this bread is that it’s 33% whole wheat flour which means you get the whole wheat taste but it’s still very light in color and it doesn’t have the heaviness that you sometimes find in whole wheat breads.

Mr. Reinhart mentioned that this is a good formula for the bread machine so that’s what I did. It really doesn’t get any easier than that. I did, however, shape it into a loaf pan after it had risen.

This bread was good but we usually prefer an entirely whole wheat bread. My husband did comment that this bread makes the best toast so I’m sure I will be making it again one day.

The Light Wheat Bread is on page 181 of The Bread Baker’s Apprentice. Visit Pinch My Salt to catch up with the other bakers.
