It’s not a boule, it’s not a baguette. It’s a bastard.
Bursting with whole grain and seeds, this bread requires minimum effort. You don’t need to knead and proof the dough or even preheat the oven. Simply combine all ingredients and place your loaf in a cold oven. Set up the temperature and bake for an hour.
It takes time and patience, but your reward will be a crusty loaf with a chewy yet tender crumb and a clean, wheaty flavor.
Simple wheat bread refined with buttermilk, which keeps the bread longer fresh and benefits the flavor. Its delicate-sour note makes the small but subtle difference.
Richer than a simple wheat bread but not as sweet as a brioche. I reserve this bread for weekend breakfasts with the family. Butter, strawberry jam or Nutella are my favorite spreads on the Sunday Bread.
