Step 7: Variations

Picture of Variations
For a whole/multi grain bread use 2 cups whole wheat flour for the starter and add 2 cup of the wheat flour and 1 cup rolled oats (dry) when mixing. Rolling the dough in oats instead of flour for step #6 really bumps up the presentation.

2 or 3 tablespoons of fresh rosemary (chopped) makes a nice addition.

Brush the bread with an egg wash before baking for a shiny, deep brown crust. For the egg wash, beat together 1 egg and 2 tablespoons of water.

Lastly, have fun with the size and shape of the loaf. Long french bread like loaves work well. Also, the dough can be divided into 2-4 balls and used as bread bowls for soup. Note: You will need to adjust the bake time.
