HBinFive - Master Recipe


Over the holidays I tried to be ahead of the game - after all, the recipe isn't due until the 15th of January! However, between visits and holiday get togethers, I didn't get all three recipes completed - I only got the baguette and epi finished. I definitely will be trying the crackers at a later date, but time slipped away and it just never got done for this post! I enjoyed making the baguette, and enjoyed it with my lunch for a few days. My epi looked more like a bear claw, not so much a stalk of wheat, but it tasted great nonetheless! Instead of using white whole wheat, I used King Arthur Whole Wheat, and we enjoyed the taste - it wasn't too overpowering!

I have been switching between white whole wheat flour and regular in a variety of their recipes as well. I didn't for this particular recipe, but when I make the next batch I think I will. Nice to visit your blog!

Your epi does not look like a bearclaw, it looks great! I've been using up a bag of KA white whole wheat, but I want to try the actual whole wheat and taste the difference.

Have to agree with Kim, your Epi does not look like a Bear Claw! It looks great!

I like to try different flours when I bake and I'm loving the White WW Flour. I added a 1/2 of sourdough starter to my Master Recipe and boy was that good!

Thanks for the cheerleading everyone! I generally use White Whole Wheat, but I did enjoy the heartier taste of the whole wheat.

It's been fun to see all the epi shapes :) I think we can all smile and be proud of our attempts.

Great looking baguette too.

I wish my hubby would go more with whole wheat! Lucky you! Your baguette looks great. I think your epi looks fine also! Great work!
