Help Changing Recipe
Hello again everyone! I have been happily using the recipe below for my weekly bread but have decided that I want to add some more whole grains / seeds to the recipe. Last week I added (after soaking for a few hours) steel cut oats, 3 grain cereal and some oat bran. After draining the soaked grains I added them to my regular recipe. During mixing I ended up adding a bunch of exta AP flour to get it back to the correct consistancy due to the extra moisture from the grains. I am asking for some help in altering the recipe below so that I can add the extra grains and still only get 2 large loaves instead of the two and a half I got by just adding the grains to the recipe.
8 oz / 1 cup Water (just above room temp)
8 oz / 1 cup 2 % Milk (at room temp)
1 large Potato (cooked until very soft)
2 oz / 1/4 cup Salted Butter
1.5 oz / 3 tbsp Honey
0.375 oz / or 2-1/4 tsp Active Dry Yeast
0.333 oz / or 2 tsp Kosher salt
28 oz / 3 1/2 cups Bread Flour
12 oz / 1 1/2 cups AP Flour
8 oz / 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
4 oz / 1/2 cup Wheat Bran
I would like to add oats, oat bran, flax seed and 3 grain cereal. Any suggestions would be appreciated as well as techniques for using them (soaking, not soaking, cooking them first, etc).
