Bread Baking Babes bounce back to basics

Okay…. It’s not Wonder bread but I think the consensus is that it is wonderful.

I have a confession to make….

I’ve never tasted Wonder Bread.

My mother normally baked bread. She loved toast and, for her, decent toast had to come from decent bread.

Wonder Bread was not decent bread. In her opinion it didn’t toast well and was soft and squishy. Therefore it did not enter our house.

Why am I nattering on about this bland,  white bread? In case you thought this was typical of all sandwich bread…. the Bread Baking Babes have a treat for you:

Multigrain Sourdough Sandwich Bread

Karen, of Karen’s Kitchen Stories, our host kitchen for the month, not only gives us this fantastic recipe for ‘soft, white sandwich bread’ she 

gives instructions on how to use a sourdough starter.

And it’s not really plain, old white bread – it’s chock-a-block with grains and seeds and other good stuff.

The Babes all agree that it makes great toast for breakfast – if there is any left.

If you are looking for an easy bread for toast and sandwiches and just eating slathered with butter, visit Karen’s Kitchen Stories o get the recipe and the details for being a Bread Baking Buddy this month.

  1. It really is the most fabulous bread! Until making this recipe, I have been a little intimidated to try making sandwich bread without adding any commercial yeast. How cool that wild yeast really does work!! (Duh. As if it wasn’t for centuries before the last one when commercial yeast was introduced and basically took over in peoples’ kitchens.)

    • Wild yeast is a wonderful thing. When we were making wine we were not allowed to add any yeast. It fermented with the yeast that was already on the skins,

  2. I forgot to add: Thank goodness it’s not Wonder bread! One has to wonder how Wonder Bread became so successful.

    Wonder Bread wishes that their bread was as good as this BBB sandwich bread!

    (Note that the nice alliteration on the title to this post was not lost on me… goodness how sad that I didn’t manage to echo it, I’ve had to make do with a run-on sentence instead because that’s as much as I can manage after being so late to the table.)
