I did a little investigation on blogs, and read that people had bad experiences using only whole wheat four, so I decided to use 2 cups of white flour and 1 cup whole wheat.
After a few hours, I realized that I had orange-blossom honey in my fridge. I added a big tablespoon of honey and folded it into the dough.
I let the dough rest for about 24 hours. Normally, I'd stop it at 18 hours, but I've hardly been home and what could 6 extra hours do, right? Once it was nice and bubbly, I preheated the oven and my Chefmate dutch oven for about 30-60 minutes to 500.
I reduced the heat to about 460ish once it was in. According to the original recipe, I'm supposed to leave the bread covered for the first 30 minutes, then uncovered for the next 15 minutes. After about 20-25 minutes, I started smelling an *almost* burning bread situation.
I quickly checked, and noticed that the top was starting to get pretty dark. So, I decided to stop there.
Normally, one should wait for the bread to cool, but I couldn't. It was almost my bedtime, so I had to try some before bed.
It turned out a little doughy in the middle, but that went away after a few hours. The honey was a nice touch, I'm glad I added it. I think I like this version a little better than the original, white bread version. Next time, I might experiment with honey and lavender.
