Wheat Bread

My wheat bread has a funny story to tell...

It's hollow inside! Not sure what happened, except that it must have risen funny. Either way, it still was a great texture and yummy taste. By the way, I used this white bread recipe but substituted about a cup and half of the white flour for wheat flour.

Also, after talking to some people, I realized the hollow came from not punching down the bread well enough after the first rise.


  1. I've had that happen to bread and it's usually because I didn't knead it enough and I left big air bubbles in there when folding the dough over. It's so annoying when it happens because my husband uses the bread for sandwiches to take to work and can't really do that with huge holes!

  2. I would guess that when you punched it down for the second rising, there were bigger bubbles that you didn't get out. I bet it is still yummy though!
