Yield: Yields one nearly 2-lb. loaf or two smaller ones.
A combination of coarse and fine whole-wheat flours gives this bread a more interesting texture. You can find the coarse kind at most health-food stores; Arrowhead Mills and King Arthur are two brands. You can also make the bread using the fine whole-wheat flour in place of the coarse (use the same weight). Make two smaller loaves rather than one big one if you’re a real fan of crusty bread.
A few slashes with a razor blade allow the bread to rise evenly. Uncut bread will give you a haphazardly ripped crust.
Make Ahead Tips
To keep the crust crisp longer, store bread in a paper bag or on the kitchen counter.
