I am just so pleased with this bread, so I had to share. It is the Vermont Sourdough recipe, only I switched it up a little. I used spelt for the starter, and added semolina, rye, and spelt to the mix in the final dough. I probably would leave out the semolina next time, but maybe not. I also added 1 1/2 oz oats, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds. And a little extra water after I mixed it up and it was a little stiff. About 1 1/2 oz. I haven't sliced this particular batch yet, but I made it yesterday too and the dough performed pretty much the same so this is what I assume the crumb will look like, as this is yesterday's loaf. :
I like the taste and texture of the bread. I have never baked with seeds before so I was surprised how strong their flavor was in the loaf. I will always love white bread best, but variety is the spice of life. heh. For some reason I have an urge to add golden raisins or dried apricots to this, but I will resist for now. Anyway, I am so excited that reading this site and all my books has finally helped me improve a bit!
