Called "Pain de Campagne" in French, this rustic country style French bread uses a mix of both wholemeal flour and white bread flour. Enjoy with butter and jam.
Something else. What a wonderful bread. I once used a sourdough starter instead of the overnite version and that worked very well too. Crispy outside and very light and fluffy inside, while still hearty thanks to the wholemeal. I've also tried adding wheat bran and found that even tastier. Enjoy! - 08 Oct 2008
Made it more kid friendly. Very easy to make. The starter method does give additional lift and flavour. I added 1 Tablespoon of honey because my kids are fussy, it doesn't really affect the flavour. Great as toast! - 08 Oct 2008
I'm only halfway through this recipe (waiting for the first rise), but so far I love it! The proportions of ingredients are perfect and everything is going exactly as indicated. I'm a novice bread baker (this is only my second attempt at bread) so I'm very excited. I'll write again when I taste it, but I'm expecting it to be just what I'm looking for! - 08 Oct 2008
