Early Springtime in New Jersey.

Colorful clouds at dawn, rye bread, chipping sparrows, and a local cat. When the cat showed up, the small birds disappeared.

Home Cooking. Whole Wheat & Oatmeal Bread.

Whole Wheat & Oatmeal Bread Recipe: Oatmeal (2/3 cup); Bread Flour (1 cup); Whole Wheat Flour (1 cup); Sprouted Wheat Flour (1 cup); Flax Seed (1/4 cup);  sugar (2 tbs); maple syrup (1 tbs); dry milk (1/4 cup); salt (2 tsp); egg (1 large); flax oil (1/4 cup); water (1 1/3 cup). Above ingredients added to the Panasonic Bread Bakery. Yeast (2 tsp) added to yeast hopper and the unit set for Whole Wheat Bread (Rapid) and started. Three hours later, the loaf of bread was removed and allowed to cool. This time the bread rose almost out of the cooker. Next time need to slow down the yeast fermentation process. (increase salt, decrease sugar, decrease yeast. I like this bread since it is not as dense and heavy as the Rye & Whole Wheat loaves.

The center was too moist (somewhat gummy). Probably due to using honey. Next time, I will cut back on the amount of water (or eliminate the honey).
