No Seeds or Grains for me.
I've noticed the trend of trying to stuff as many ingredients as possible into a loaf of bread these days. As for me, I like my bread, plain, and my coffee, unflavored.
Flax Seed, Whole Wheat, Whole Rye, Rolled Oats, Peanuts, Cashews, Cherry Pits, Olives, Caraway, Dill, Rosemary, etc., etc., etc. These recipes are beginning to sound like the making of a FRUITCAKE!!! Just a little batter to hold the nuts & fruits.
I like oats, nuts, and spices, but for me, bread is just not the medium for that. I just cannot get my tastebuds around a 21-Nut & Spiced piece of toast with my morning Jam or a PBJ sandwich to go along with my soup.
I'm neither beast nor fowl which love Nuts & Grains. Don't misunderstand, I've tried these breads, just not my thing.
My goal has been to learn a basic White Sourdough Bread. Those recipes are rare. Even the "Holy Grail Vermont Sourdough by Hammelin" has Rye.
