Oatmeal Brown Bread

This week I wanted something for a hardy sandwich that I can take to work. This Oatmeal Brown was the perfect choice. It was easy to make with just a few adjustments to the receipe that came with my breadmaker. I did the dough in the breadmaker but baked it in a long loaf pan. It has become my favourite pan because it makes a moderate sized slice that is perfect for sandwiches and it is long enough to last a couple of days. The other loaf is a Greek white bread that we will talk about at another time.
It's late so I won't enter the receipe tonight. I am behind from last week's as well but will catch them both up as soon as possible.

Cracked Wheat and Honey- The Results

Well, it didn't turn out too badly. A nice crust, a little to the golden side and a little chewy (but good). The crumb was a little denser than I would like but it made for a very hardy bread. It made some nice sandwiches for todays lunch and a great piece of toast for this evening's snack. I'll post the receipe and some more details later in the week.

Cracked Wheat and Honey in the breadmaker

This week's bread is officially in the breadmaker. The bread is Cracked Wheat and Honey. I had a late start this evening so the breadmaker will work while I sleep. If all goes well we will have the nice smell of bread to wake up to in the morning.
My wife bought me a beautiful bread knife at the Grohmann factory in Pictou NS this weekend, I can't wait to try it out tomorrow.
I'll post results and the recipe tomorrow night.

Inspired by Julie and Julia

I love to bake bread! Recently I went to see Julie and Julia and was inspired to steal the concept and try to see if I can make a different type of bread or rolls every week for a year. Starting this weekend I will try to produce a different treat each week and share the receipes here. Please come back regularly and check it out. I would love to hear your comments.

There are no rules, my breadmaker is my friend and will certainly help out. Whole wheat bread and whole wheat rolls are two different things. I will shamelessly steal receipes but will try to reference them whenever possible.

Failures count, anything worth doing is worth failing in the attempt.
