I love, love, love this bread. I believe it is my most favorite of all the sourdough breads I have made yet. So I had to share a picture of it first.
It is slightly sour with a sweet oaty background, darn that sound like I am describing a fine wine, not a loaf of bread. The recipe I used was for the bread machine so it had added yeast, but I left it out because I only used the dough cycle of my machine and baked it in the oven. I will include it here with the recipe because that's how the original had it listed.
Oatmeal Sourdough Bread
Makes 1 1/2 pound loaf
3/4 cup sourdough starter
3/4 cup milk
3 cups bread flour
1/3 cup rolled oats or quick oats
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon yeast ( I left this out because I used the dough cycle, feel free to use it if you plan on baking in machine or even in dough cycle.)
Put stuff in your bread machine as your manufacturer recommends. I used dough cycle. When mine was done I let it rise about 1 hour till doubled and baked in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes.
So there you have it, one of my favorites so far in the sourdough journey, I have started. I hope everyone will give it a try !!!
