Mellow Bakers - Five Grain Bread

I completely understand it is the 31st of August.  As always, I'm trying to complete all the challenges last minute.  If you are a regular reader, some of you would remember myself stating I will do all three breads for Mellow Bakers.  But I only got to two breads.  I would have made all three if my sour dough starter liked me.  Since this challenge started, I have killed multiple starters.  By the end of this challenge I will get a good sour dough starter to stay alive.  As Mellow Bakers continue,  I find myself liking the straight dough recipes.  Luckily, this bread is a straight dough.  The recipe comes from page 238 in the straight dough section.  As I was making this, the house filled with the smell of fresh bread.  It was wonderful smell I wish I could have in my house all the time.  The recipe made about 4 1-1.5 lb loaves.  For this bread I used: cornmeal, rye flour, whole wheat flour, bread flour, flax seed, wheat bran, and oatmeal.  I do wish it was a little sweeter.  I may try adding a little honey to this recipe next time.



Bread Cetera also posted a version of this bread.

Here are a few of the other participates.  If I missed anybody, please post yours in the comment area:

  3. I liked this one a lot, but then I say that a lot. This was one of those breads that was surprisingly hearty, and improved with age. It will be fun to try the sourdough version, as several of our fellow Mellows already have done.

    I like the open slice picture!

  6. Mmm! Grains make bread taste so much more interesting than plain old white bread.

  9. That bread looks like something you'd buy in a bakery. It's lovely. I am a bit afraid of sourdough. I haven't tried it yet, but it's on my list.
