The baking has begun! These are Hefenkranz from the King Arthur Flour web site, shaped into two loaves instead of a wreath. There are some pretty awesome recipes on that web site!
Providentially, King Arthur Flour had free shipping on their products yesterday. A new scale is finding it’s way to our house as we speak. Our old one wasn’t doing too well during the baking process. If you’ve never weighed out ingredients, you should give it a try some time. Brown sugar, dried fruit, and any other ingredient where it says packed or something along those lines make me crazy. Sticky fingers and never getting the same amount twice send me over the edge. This scale even has pre-programmed ingredients if you don’t know the average weight of a cup of unbleached flour. (it’s about 5 ounces, unsifted) Cool, huh?
