If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m pretty enamored with the Sourdough by Foodbod site/recipes.
Several times I’ve read over her Breakfast Mix Loaf. I’ve been wanting to try it but there have been too many other things to try. Yesterday I did it. . started the Breakfast Mix Loaf. I had to make a few changes. We had roasted pumpkin seeds but they were way past the expiration date and nuts just don’t last so I tossed those. I had sunflower seeds and they have lots of time left before their expiration date but that’s another thing from Aldi that goes bad way too soon. They were rancid so I was running out of options. I had walnuts so I toasted some of those and used them.
For the spices, I used fresh ginger and added it to the dough. I didn’t have cardamon and when I looked at the price online, I think I’ll just skip that. Not spending $9 for a little bottle. For the dough, I used the Flic Floc to roll steel cut oats so they were smaller than rolling whole oats. I coated the outside of the dough with whole oats that I rolled in the Flic Floc.
Otherwise, I pretty much followed the recipe.
That bread is so delicious! I was a bit apprehensive about using turmeric. I do not like the taste at all, though I know it’s terribly good for you. I think it tastes like dirt! But, for the health benefits, I added it. I can taste it in this bread but the cinnamon is strong enough to mask the turmeric flavor a bit.
For breakfast I sliced a piece and had it with butter. But I kept thinking about it so I had a second piece, with butter, cinnamon and sugar that I toasted under the broiler.
I have a feeling this is a bread that’s going to be made over and over.
