16 of 16 people found the following review helpful By M. A. Casey on November 14, 2003
Format: Paperback
I came across this book at the public library, and I brought it home because the bread recipes looked wholesome and delicious... and because I was intrigued by the casserole bread chapter. I never saw so many recipes using that method! I tried a casserole rye/potato bread and we all thought it was delicious, and I esp. appreciated the lack of kneading it really saves on time.
This book is now in my wish list for Christmas.... I want more time to pick and choose than the library can give... there is nothing like the smell of fresh bread baking!

Format: Paperback
I checked out this book at the library as I had read a review stating it was a good book for those seeking to bake whole grain breads. It has many good recipes in it; however, the majority (80% in my view) is mostly bread or white flour with a smaller percentage of whole grains. I was disappointed only because I was expecting something different. I attempt not to use white flours and many of the recipes had a higher white flour content than whole grains. The Yeast raised honey cornbread is 100% whole grain and is wonderful. I enjoyed reading the book but still consider Peter Reinhart's Whole Grain Breads the benchmark. This would be an excellent book for those wishing to add some grains to their diet.

The recipes in this book are easy-to-follow. Ojakangas gives excellent step-by-step tips on how to mix and knead the dough and how to handle whole grains. In the introduction, there are numerous tips to help the novice cook develop a passion for baking breads. There is even a section on Flour sources, in case you are unable to locate a specific flour in your neighborhood.

Whole grain breads are not very popular when it comes to the books. There is usually a small chapter in them or none at all. Beatrice Ojakangas has compiled a wonderful book with such diverse recipes ranging from dinner breads to sweet dessert breads utilizing the nutricious whole grain. As I am beginning to experience bread baking, I can not help but want to make them all, it's so much fun and the recipes are wonderful. Her directions are easy and very creative. I will be using this book for a long time to come. Enjoy!
