This time around for our HBn5 assignment we made maple oatmeal bread, and quinoa bread.
I was looking forward to both, maple and oats.. yum, and I loves me some quinoa.
The maple oatmeal dough smelled really good while I was mixing it up. Maple syrup and cinnamon….duh! I found that it didn’t rise as quickly or as high as some other breads that we’ve done. When I took it out of the fridge and shaped it, it took longer to rise. It smelled wonderful while baking and I could hardly wait to dig in. The loaf came out nice I thought, but I didn’t feel that it had the taste I was expecting. While I am writing this, I am munching on some made into toast and schmeared with butter. Not bad, still not my favorite.
The quinoa bread is one of my favorites so far. I like quinoa, and so does MJOL, if I don’t tell him that’s what he is eating! This dough rose very well, before I put it in the fridge and after I shaped it. It had a nice crust and crumb and I liked the crunch of the quinoa. We had it last night with whole wheat rotini, and sauce made with roasted tomatoes from the garden.

Until our next baking adventure.
