Good Crumb, nice sweet nutty flavor with just a hint of sour.
Great looking bread, Wingnut. Inspiring to add some oats to whole wheat - nice crumb too.
I like the crust too -
How did you get the top part to separate and lift? Did you score it all around the circumference? If so....how deep was the cut?
Great job. Looks like a nice crunchy crust with an open flavorful crumb. I can see the oat bran poking it's head out from your crumb and your crust :).
for all the kind words.....
Linda- If "I" inspire someone to bake that would amaze me, but bake away!
Volvik- I scored the bread on four sides, on a 90 degree angle perpendicular the center of the loaf. And only as deep as my razor's half would go.
Ian- Cheers mate, overall I was fairly pleased with the results.
as usual. The only time I use oat bran is to brown it in a skillet to make Toadies for bread. I'm going to have to stick it in some bread straight up.
Nice baking Wingnut!
