“This is a recipe I developed. For the flours I use metric weight measurements for accuracy. If you don't have a metric scale, you can use 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 2 1/4 cups bread flour; that doesn't translate exactly to the metric measurements I use but it will produce a similar result. Time does not include time for rising as rise time will vary.”
