Whole Wheat Pullman/Pain de Mie
I've become fed up with supermarket sandwich breads so I recently purchased a pullman pan to make my own.
I found this recipe on King Arthur's website for 100% Whole Wheat Pain de Mie
However, I have two issues with the recipe:
1. It calls for a 13" pullman pan, but I have a 15.75" pan and, being a bit of a novice when it comes to bread baking, I don't really know how to appropriately adjust the recipe for my longer pan.
2. It calls for 6 tablespoons of butter and 1 cup of milk, which seems like a lot to me. I'm wondering if there's anyway to sub in buttermilk for some or all of the fat/moisture in this recipe.
Do any of you bread experts out there have some suggestions for me?
Big thanks in advance!
Thank you so much! This is great.
I will probably experiment with buttermilk in lieu of 6 tbl. butter and 1 cup of milk (trying to avoid that much butter). I'm a novice bread baker, so the results could be disastrous, but I will report back if the results are good.
Buttermilk contains little, if any fat, it is just cultured lowfat milk. You'll need to add some fat.
