More bread-making practice needed...!
Well, I tried making Delia's easy no-knead wholemeal bread today, but couldn't get it to rise. I used graham flour rather than wholemeal flour because it looked more suitably brown to me! I think the mixture was too wet, and I didn't use quite enough yeast. It tastes OK though, and is certainly brown, so not a complete disaster! A bit closer to the vacuum-packed German ryebread that I buy than actual bread...! I'll have another go soon - I think I can get optimal bread proving conditions under my kotatsu!
