Our co-baking buddy, Guff, developed a steel cut oatmeal bread. I had mentioned that I was looking for a new, lighter multigrain bread. Recently, I purchased some oat groats at a really good price, and he gave me this recipe. You can see his fun blog at Old Pop's Blog
Although it wasn't whole groats, it sounded like it would be a good thing to test out at the Farmer's Market.
Here are the mini loaves, after an overnight rise in the fridge. I think they rose too much, and the edges had to be trimmed with a scissors. Only a half batch was made the first time.
One loaf was cut into samples, and the other two loaves sold to happy customers.
The next time, I made 3 small loaves and one larger ( 1 1/2 pound) loaf. All the loaves sold.
Here's a picture of the second batch of my smaller loaves baking--sourdough and Guff's Steel Cut Oatmeal bread:
You can tell them apart because of the oats in the dough. I was really careful of this because of a mixup of 2 whole wheat recipes in the past.
Thanks for stoppping by. I hope you will leave a comment and suggestions. Come back soon!
