Sourdough Oat Bread Take 1

Here's my first go at the sourdough oat bread recipe I received from a friend of mine.  I made half a recipe and made note of the weight of each item as I went along.  The formula can be found in grams by following the original posting of the recipe at http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/32444/sourdough-oat-bread

 

The crumb -

 

Oh no, I just tasted a slice of this bread - it takes like Bisquick!  I'm so disappointed, but maybe I can try a second batch WITHOUT the baking soda and replace the diastatic malt with honey too.

it looks nice......I've had a few of those too.  Keep tinkering and I'm sure your next attempt will be more edible.

I'm thinking of swapping out a little more of the bread flour for more oats and also adding some orange zest to the mix.  I think that will make for a tastier loaf all the way around.   It's a nice loaf- I hope getting rid of the baking soda doesn't cause any problems.  We'll see next week.  My husband is taking these two loaves to work where they will promptly be devoured.

When I asked my friend who gave me the recipe about the flavor being biscuit-like he said " well, yeah, sorta".  Well yeah, alot like biscuits.  Onward to the next bake!

Taking out the baking soda should not hurt it at all.  As they say, just watch the dough until it is ready to bake and you should be fine.  I've made similar dough in the past and I agree adding the honey and your other swaps should make for a tasty bread.

Good luck.
