BBA - Multigrain Bread Extraordinare
It's been a while since I've made or posted a bread from The Bread Baker's Apprentice: Mastering the Art of Extraordinary Bread. No bread making means there hasn't been any bread around here, so no sandwiches. No toast. No grilled cheese. Pretty sad.
That's behind us now as I made these lovely rolls a few weekends ago. This is a two stage bread, with the soaker made the first day and mixed with the rest of the ingredients to make the bread dough. As with all breads in this book, the flavor was rich and deep. Definitely a repeat-worthy bread.
I'm baking through The Bread Baker's Apprentice with the Slow & Steady subgroup of the BBA challenge. There are a lot of talented bakers in our little group, including Nancy (of Corner Loaf), Cathy (of The Tortefeasor), Jessica (A Singleton in the Kitchen), Melissa (of From Laptop to Stovetop), Kayte (of Grandma's Kitchen Table), Sarah (of Blue Ridge Baker), Di (of Di's Kitchen Notebook), Margaret (of Tea and Scones) and Natalia (of Gatti Fili e Farina. We even have Nicole of Pinch My Salt (she started the BBA challenge) baking with us. You should join us! We're flexing our bread making muscles and surprising ourselves with all the types of bread we've mastered.
