Bread making day

Banana blueberry muffins with crumb topping
 Thanks to fellow blogger, Michele Hastings, who shared her batch of same muffins HERE.

 And since the oven was going to be on at same temp, I worked up a batch of whole wheat bread.  Actually it was my first goal, and the muffins fit right in, since they were done in 20 min. and the bread took 45.

I keep using Fanny Farmer's recipe and get these kind of low loaves.  Maybe I just need fresher yeast, or perhaps need to remember how to knead.  After all the wedging of clay, I tend to remove the air bubbles, rather than fold them in.  It tastes great however.

Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
