Recipe Exchange -Pain Au Son: French Bran Bread
I made this bread recipe tonight. Oh my, it is so soft and light. It is definitely a keeper. You use 1 1/2 cups of bran in this bread. A note on the original recipe I used said that you have to have 25% bran to be able to be called a bran bread in France. There are just a few ingredients in this bread. Most people will have everything in their kitchen cupboards, except for the bran. I didn't use egg white/water wash on top of the bread, because I think it browns the bread too quickly. It turned out perfect without it. I also used two smaller bread pans instead of one large one. I did this because it is hard to fit the large loaves in the toaster. Guess who is having toast for breakfast tomorrow!
