|This bread turned out really well. I used fresh ground Hard Winter White Wheat, Flax Seeds, an 8 grain cereal mix, Oat Groats, Sunflower seeds, but had to leave out the rye chops which were not available here. I got a lame for Mothers day from Breadtopia, which is making a huge difference in my slashes. It just looks so much better!|
|The crumb came out light, with nice size holes evenly spread throught. Overall, it looks pretty with all the little seeds showing.|
|Everything in it's place, which always helps me not forget things like salt!|
|Here are all the grains together in the bowl of water. Just looked pretty!|
|Mixed all together ready to autolyse for 1/2 an hour.|
|Kneaded the dough for 4 minutes, and it was one of those days that the bread just came together really well.|
|This is where I realized I forgot the salt. I went ahead and kneaded the dough for a couple minutes, then allowed it to rise for another hour.|
Mellow Baker's and we are baking from a book called, Bread: A Baker's Book of Techniques and Recipes by Jeffrey Hamelman. Come check the forum out, it's a pretty laid back group who bakes what they can when they can with no time pressure's on them. There are a few recipes that are suggested for each month, and we simply bake the ones that we want to.
