Bread Baking: Whole Wheat Sandwich Loaf

[Photograph: Donna Currie]

This is a nice sandwich loaf that's got a higher percentage of white to whole wheat than I usually use, but it's a little lighter and fluffier than you'd expect, thanks to the potato flakes. It's also an easy loaf to make. Since gluten develops during the long overnight rest in the refrigerator, it requires just a little kneading. The overnight cold rest also helps develop flavor, so not only is it an easy loaf, it's also tasty.

I think this one would be particularly nice if it were brushed with an egg wash and sprinkled with sesame seeds. But then again, I like sesame seeds a lot, so I'll leave that up to you.
