Chef's Notes

You made need up to 3 more ounces of water to allow the dough to form a ball. To get the best results from this recipe, be sure to select the correct container size from the drop-down. Whole wheat doughs are generally denser than that of all purpose flour, try mixing a blend of flour for your first try to see if you like the texture and consistency.
