Good Bread

After all the failure this week in the sourdough department, I felt I needed to just make a good loaf, the way I know how - with store-bought yeast. This loaf is the best I have ever made. It's a cranberry walnut whole wheat bread. We have had cranberry walnut bread from the Whole Foods bakery several times. I decided to make it myself instead of paying the $6 for theirs. It came out so good! It's just a simple wheat bread to which I added 1/2 cup of honey, and dried cranberries and walnuts.

I have my sourdough starter in a plastic bowl this time. I am waiting to see it grow. Then I will try again for my first sourdough loaf!


  1. mmmm yummy!! Simple is best and especially when you know the recipe.

  2. Oh it's SO good there's only a few pieces left!! It's practically all I've been eating for two days!
    I love simple. I love being able to throw something together, without a recipe.
    Thank you Benja, and Lia, for reading and commenting. It really makes my day when I know you have enjoyed my blog!!! ♥♥
