How the bread turned out

Well, surprisingly, I followed the recipe exactly (well, okay, I added one ingredient), and it turned out delicious.

This was the first time in months that we've used our "own" wheat. Mom just bought a small bag of wheat berries, and I ground some of them for use in this recipe. It was so good to smell that milled-grain scent; we hadn't used our mill in so long! And the finished product had a lovely nutty flavor that only comes from home-ground flour.

I was surprised at how basic and simple this recipe is. It's bread. And that's it. There's nothing spectacular about the way it turns out...except for the shape (I love that!). Everything else is completely normal. It's just a neat way to make bread on a hot summer day, to avoid turning on the oven.

I think I'll try it again sometime.

This looks and sounds like a great recipe Amber, thank you for sharing it.

I have been away from the computer for the last few days and had missed some of your posts. The post "Answered once again" was a blessing to read. Praise God for answered prayer and for His faithfulness!

That staining project sounds like a lot of work, I'm looking forward to that "finished" picture.

Those scriptures are so beautiful, thanks for posting them.

Love in Christ,

I had never thought of making bread in the slow-cooker before, Amber! That is wonderful that it turned out so well. :)

By the way, we also grind our own wheat. :) (Though we still use bread flour and all-purpose flour sometimes too.)
