ABC - 100% Whole Wheat Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Cinnamon Swirl Bread? Love that stuff. 100% whole wheat? Even better! That's how this month's ABC recipe came about. Of course, the recipe is from the King Arthur Flour recipe database.

This recipe is made with a starter. I made my starter but didn't have time to bake the next day, I refrigerated it until the next day.


I made two small loaves.


The taste was great, however, I wasn't too fond of the texture. It was a bit heavy but that's my fault. I think I added too much water (about 3.5 oz total for the whole recipe).



Don't forget to check out the results of other ABC bakers. Their loaves turned out much better than mine. I will definitely redo this recipe in a few weeks.

  1. I don't think your loaf looks bad at all. But I'm eager to see how your re-worked one will turn out. By the way, by retarding the starter the taste most likely improved.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I will definitely make it again. I bet the starter is what gave it that good flavor.

    1. Hi Rosa. I think you and Karin are both right about the starter and how it gave the bread good flavor.

  3. Must be all of the artisan breads that inspire us to make very wet doughs. It's hard for me not to do the same thing with "regular" loaves. =) Your loaves are cute!

    1. Ah, that's what it is :) I do prefer wetter/stickier doughs.

  4. Regardless of what you said, your loaves look good! We loved the flavour of this bread too....it was worth it to make just for learning the trick of using orange juice to eliminate bitterness.

  5. I think you are being too modest. Your bread looks wonderful with great crumbs. I generally prefer wetter dough too but mine was really wet.
