Stepping outside my comfort zone often happens as a result of being in a baking group. Take Semolina flour for instance. I've been baking for over 35 years and never used it. Does one admit such things on a public blog?? But I'm happy I accepted the challenge because this bread was delicious. I will make it often.
This is not a quick recipe but it is not a difficult recipe either. It comes together easily in your food processor or mixer. It does have 3 rising times, each for about 2 hours. But patience pays off with a beautiful loaf of sunny, slightly nutty bread. It was perfect with a bowl of Cream of Broccoli Soup.Our hostesses this week are Anna, she blogs at Keep it Luce, and Renee from The Way to My Family's Heart check their blogs for the complete recipe.
Now that I think about it I did decrease the salt a bit. The recipe called for 2 teaspoons of salt, I cut it down to 1 1/2 teaspoon. I think it would have been fine either way. I also made White Loaves while I had things out. 3 beautiful loaves of bread in one day--what a treat!
