Country Bread - Hamelman

Uh! It has been like ages since I updated the blog. I still have been baking though, most of the time breads I already made before, so I was thinking it was kinda useless to post them again. And there is a lot of stuff going on in the house these days so updating the blog was not always possible.
Here is the country bread from the Hamelman book. My spouse liked this a lot. She said the smell reminded her of bread she used to get at a local bakery back in the days.

Bloch-Bruine Provence

I made this bread with organic whole wheat. My personal opinion is that there should be some bread flour in the dough to support the dough strength. The taste was great but I found that the slices crumbled because the whole wheat (100%) did not seem to have enough gluten. I guess using different whole wheat might solve this problem.

Barm Bread - Dan Lepard - Variation

The barm bread is delicious and easy to make, not too much work required, only thing you need to keep in mind that it takes like the whole day from start to finish.
I took 50% white flour and 50% different flours, and added some seeds too.
The result was nice and I have no doubt that the taste will be great too.
