Another week, another loaf of Dan’s Sandwich Bread

The formula for this loaf is found in my book. Dan does not like to eat 100% whole wheat bread like I do, so I add 2/3 cup cracked 9 grain cereal presoaked  in 2/3 cup hot water, 1/4 cup ground flax seeds, 2 tablespoons whole caraway seeds, a little organic fair trade cane sugar (evaporated cane juice) and non-iodized salt to the unbleached flour. To accommodate the differences in our breads, I feed the sourdough starter with unbleached all-purpose flour when activating it for Dan’s bread, then feed it with my hand ground whole wheat flour before putting it back in the refrigerator in preparation for baking my loaf in a couple of days.
