The second bread braid of the Healthy Bread in 5 Minutes a Day was the Soft Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread. I made mine from white whole wheat flour, adding a bit more salt and a tad less yeast than the original recipe due to high altitude issues. True to the recipe, it was a soft bread and so I decided to turn some of my dough into rolls- they disappeared rather quickly at Sunday dinner.
My husband's family hails from a beautiful place in Dorset, England where they have tall hedges and thatched roofs. The story goes that for generations they were gardeners for Lord Sandwich, at Mapperton Manor. When we eat a sandwich at our house, we can't help but think a moment about the man who gave his name to the convenient hand-held bread, meat and cheese. Go here to learn more about Lord Sandwich, John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich.
There are many good bakers out there with wonderful blogs that have been
baking up a storm with this healthy sandwich bread.
Go to Michelle's blog, Big Black Dogs to see the entire list.
And go make your self a sandwich!
