Crustless vs. crusty bread

Alright, so the “back in the saddle” declaration in my previous post was a bit premature.

I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to get this blog up and running again; I have been baking (it keeps me sane) but just never seemed to find a moment to write the actual posts. So, instead of making any promises (…) I’ll just keep this one short and sweet.

I found out about this publication on crustless bread from Susanfnp‘s Twitter (for the record, she noted: “Or perhaps they could bake #RealBread with proper crusts instead of what I see as clammy, rubbery skins”).

Okay, so I grew up on Wonder Bread, but now I most definitely prefer this:

Five-grain levain

and this:

Five-grain levain

Both are ~1kg versions of Hamelman’s five-grain levain, which I’m addicted to (really). Crumb shot for the first loaf:

Five-grain levain: crumb


I’m sending these relatively boldly baked, crusty loaves to Susan at Wild Yeast for YeastSpotting.

    It looks very pretty and should be good to eat with soup, right?

    I can see why you prefer that to wonder bread. Those loaves are a thing of beauty!

    The thought of crustless bread gives me goose bumps! For me a nice and crispy crust one of the most important things in a bread! So your bread is absolutly the kind of bread of love!
